God's Will Our Way
by Sheri Rose Shepherd

See now, the Lord has restrained me from bearing children. Please, go into my maid and perhaps I shall obtain a child by her. — Genesis 16:2

Every time that we try to conquer God’s will our way, we pay a great price. It's dangerous when we try to create our own destiny using our own strategy because we can destroy the good things that God has for us in His perfect timing. Click the video above to find out what happens in the word of God when Sarah tries to force God’s promise and how we can avoid making the same mistake.

God's Letter to You

I believe if The Lord was going to write you a personal letter about battles this life brings it may read like this....

My Beloved Daughter,

I have a plan and a promise for you, but only I can unfold it in your life. I have put desires in your heart and I have given you a hope to hold onto.

I am asking you to let me prepare you and not take my plan in your hands. My timing is as important as my will for your life. I am asking you to hand me your anxiety because it will cause you to compromise.

I don't want you, my daughter, to settle for less because you want it now. Lose yourself in my word and you won't lose sight of all I have for you. I promise that if you will wait on me you will not be disappointed!

Love,
Your Father in Heaven

Prayer

Dear God,
I lift your daughter up before you now. I am asking you to give her patience and peace as she waits for your promises to come to pass in her life. Give her the gift of joy as she waits with great expectation for your plans to unfold. Amen.

Treasure of Truth

God's timing is just as important as God's will.
