Today is Your Best Day Because of God's Leading (Part 1)
For Thou art my rock and my fortress; therefore for Thy name's sake lead me, and guide me. Psalm 31:3 KJV
Today is your best day because God will lead you in His paths, guide your way, and direct your steps. Today, you will take steps you have never taken before, learn things you've never known before, and have opportunities you've never been given before. God has many ways of showing you His ways and leading you in His will. Some of these include the Holy Scriptures, the voice of the Holy Spirit, the wise counsel of godly people, His provisions, and His peace within your heart.
God will lead you into new discoveries of spiritual truth, into new places of ministry, into new relationships, into new discoveries of prayer, into new avenues of praise, into new adventures of faith, into new steps of obedience, or into new ways of practically expressing His love to others.
I once worked with a good friend in a growing business. One day, as we stepped out of the building to take a brief work break, I sensed God's still small voice prompting me to give my friend a dollar bill. At first I hesitated, thinking that it was too small of an amount to bother with, and that my friend might think it silly of me to give it to him. The prompting, however, continued to pull upon my heart. Finally, I opened my wallet, took out a dollar bill, and handed it to my friend. "Here," I said, "I'm not sure why I am giving you this, but I sense that the Lord wants you to have it."
We didn't talk about the matter after we returned to work, but my curiosity over the dollar bill remained with me for the rest of the day. The next morning, when I met my friend at work, he shared an interesting story with me. "Do you remember the dollar you gave me yesterday?" he asked. "Yes," I quickly replied. "Well," he continued, "I didn't think it was a very significant thing yesterday morning, but I changed my mind before the day was over. Late yesterday afternoon I had an appointment at the doctor's office. I thought I had taken enough cash with me to pay for the visit, but when I went to pay my bill I discovered I was a dollar short. I remembered the dollar bill you gave me, pulled it out of my pocket, and added it to the amount I had in my wallet."
That story turned out to be a great blessing to both of us, not because God had provided a huge sum of money for my friend, but because God showed both of us how much He loves us and cares about the little details in our lives.
Trust in the Lord to lead you today. He will use you in ways that you may not be aware of, or He may use you in a very clear and practical way to bless the life of someone in need. ...
