God showed up in a big way at the Proverbs 31 conference. On the final meeting of She Speaks, Renee Swope invited us to make our way to a cross to pick up a card which read, “Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.” Proverbs 19:2
Today, the Lord continued to deal with my heart. I visited one of my favorite spots …LU Prayer Chapel. I was alone at the altar – and found rest in my Bible and with Jesus. The words “obedience” and “surrender” are the words the Holy Spirit has whispered to my heart since Lysa Terkeurst’s opening message. This morning, I reviewed the words to the old hymn “Trust and Obey.”
When we walk with the Lord
In the Light of His Word
What a glory He sheds on our way!
Let us do His good will;
He abides with us still,
And with all who will trust and obey.”
The next verse got me …
“But we never can prove
The delights of His love
Until all on the altar we lay
For the favor He shows a
And the joy He bestows
Are for them who will trust and obey.
Trust and obey for there is no other way – to be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.”
Jesus, help me surrender all to You … I so want my plans to line up with Your purposes. I love you. Thank you for inviting me to the altar again.
