Harmony between God’s sovereignty and our desires
A man with leprosy came and knelt before Him and said, “Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean.” Jesus reached out His hand and touched the man. “I am willing,” He said. “Be clean!” Immediately he was cured of his leprosy.
— Matthew 8:2-3
Grow close to God. Search His word, knowing that in doing so you are unpacking the riches of His heart. Allow Him to grow your faith the more you learn about His sovereign purposes.
Heavenly Father, show me your ways. Draw me closer to your heart, so that I would know more clearly your sovereign purposes in my life. I thank you that in so doing, my faith to receive good things from you will be increased. In Jesus’ Name I pray, AMEN!
