Lamentations 3:40-41 – Let us search out and examine our ways, And turn back to the LORD; Let us lift our hearts and hands To God in heaven.
Instead of questioning God’s ways, you should search and examine your own ways. If you desire to follow the Lord’s will for your life, then self examination must become a daily practice. How do I know if I am examining myself correctly, you ask? By wether or not it leads you into worshipping God by lifting your heart, your hands and your life to God. The examined life is a life that God can use for good in this word.
Have you ever asked either of these questions “What is God doing?” or “Why is God doing this?” The root of these questions can be a distrust and unbelief in God as Lord and Master. If, in fact, God is doing something new in your life I want to challenge you this week to trust that God knows best what He is doing. Then to look into your own heart and ask yourself this question “What can I be doing or changing to get my life in line with what God is dong?”
Grace be with you,
