IT’S NOT UP TO ME!

You must remember that in all spiritual matters, you are only an instrument.  It’s not up to you to determine how or when you are to act.  God plans your steps in everything He calls you to do.  Your job is to train yourself and become fit enough to do God’s work.  You can depend on God for all the strength you need to overcome any faults that will block your progress.  A man’s heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps” (Prov. 16:9).

PRAYER FOR TODAY

I will accomplish more by being calm than any other activity of a long day.  At all cost, I will keep calm and unruffled.  I can solve nothing when I am agitated, and need to do all I can to keep away from things that emotionally upset me.  I will not argue or contend, but merely state calmly what I believe to be true.  “Depart from evil and do good; Seek peace and pursue it” (Ps. 34:14).

THOUGHT FOR TODAY

You don’t have to fight to be right!
