An Open Heart and Mind

12 01 2012

Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he’s the one who will keep you on track.  Proverbs 3:5-6 (Message)

We often come to making big decisions loaded with preconceived notions about what is best for our lives. We take all of our experiences, what we think we know and our feelings and collectively they influence what we desire for an outcome. We may pray earnestly for God’s will in our lives to be done around this particular outcome not fully recognizing that our Heavenly Father is all knowing and able to do exceedingly and abundantly above all that we ask or think. What if we were to approach each situation with an open heart and mind about God’s grace and ability to lead us and to make full provision for the path that is chosen? Yielding our hearts creates space for God to show us His superior plan. Surrendering what we think we know to the Father, who is all knowing, allows His perfect plan for our lives to reach clarity in our vision. When we seek His leading first without all the baggage of what we think is possible, it opens our eyes to a limitless God. Let us open our hearts and our minds to His vision and His plans for our lives.
