This is the audio from the July 29, 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.
“Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity.”
Colossians 4:5 (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 for wisdom, especially in regard to the way you treat those who are not yet believers in Jesus. Pray for the wisdom necessary to see the opportunities in both expected and unexpected circumstances. Pray that the wisdom given to you by God would be used to represent Jesus in everything.
