New Life Daily Devotion - September 4, 2011


Discovering God’s Plans
It is God who is at work in you,
both to will and to work for His good pleasure.
Philippians 2:13 NASB

If you seek to live in accordance with God’s will for your life—and you should—then you will live in accordance with His commandments. You will study God’s Word, and you will be watchful for His signs. You will associate with fellow Christians who will encourage your spiritual growth, and you will listen to that inner voice that speaks to you in the quiet moments of your daily devotionals.

God intends to use you in wonderful, unexpected ways if you let Him. The decision to seek God’s plan and to follow it is yours and yours alone. The consequences of that decision have implications that are both profound and eternal, so choose carefully.

Every man’s life is a plan of God. - Horace Bushnell, 100 Days of Prayer

God has a plan for the life of every Christian. Every circumstance, every turn of destiny, all things work together for your good and for His glory. - Billy Graham

If not a sparrow falls upon the ground without your Father, you have reason to see that the smallest events of your career and your life are arranged by him. - C. H. Spurgeon

God is preparing you as his chosen arrow. As yet your shaft is hidden in his quiver, in the shadows, but, at the precise moment, he will reach for you and launch you to that place of his appointment. - Charles Swindoll

Today’s Prayer
Dear Lord, You created me for a reason. Give me the wisdom to follow Your direction for my life’s journey. Let me do Your work here on earth by seeking Your will and living it, knowing that when I trust in You, Father, I am eternally blessed. Amen
