This is the audio from the July 25, 2022 live social media broadcast of encouragement and prayer by Impact Prayer Ministry’s director, Tom Lemler.
“‘For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,’ declares the LORD. ‘As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.’”
Isaiah 55:8-9 (NIV)
With a continued focus on a time for courage, this week we will focus our prayer emphasis on our ways. The Bible makes it clear that each one of us has a way that seems right to us, but it is only God’s way that leads to life. When we accept God’s ways as being far above our own ways, we begin a journey that leads us in a way which is eternal. As you pray this week, ask God to help you examine your ways to see how much of them are of you and how much are of Him. Pray that you would continually grow in accepting and living by God’s ways in all things. Pray for the humility needed to admit when your ways are in error so that you would turn to the ways of God. Pray that the way you live your life would help others clearly see Jesus at work in you.
“It is God who arms me with strength and makes my way perfect.”
2 Samuel 22:33 (NIV)
Pray that you would find the strength from God to walk in a way He has made perfect. Pray that you would live with the courage to pursue a way that is perfect by God’s standard. Pray that your life would help others to know the way of God to be perfect in all situations.
