This is the audio from the July 28, 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.
“But eagerly desire the greater gifts. And now I will show you the most excellent way.”
1 Corinthians 12:31 (NIV)
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 your pursuit of the good things of God would always lead you to the most excellent way of doing everything. Pray that your life would reflect God’s love as the most excellent way to live. Pray that your love for God and for others could be described as excellent.
