And David became more and more powerful, because the Lord God of Heaven’s Armies was with him.

You have many options on how to live your life. Some will appear more enticing than my plan. Those plans will seem attractive and sound foolproof but don’t let them deceive you. Everyone has their best interest in mind and is looking to get something from you. I’m not that way. I love you and know what is best for you. I have your interest in mind. I want you to succeed in your relationship with me and others, and I want you to use and develop all your gifts.

Seek me and follow me. Trust me with all your heart, and I will lead you in the way you should go. You can find examples of those who went their way and found success. But you’ll discover their success was limited. I want to give you more. I want you to build your life on a lasting foundation. Let your investment in people and my kingdom have an eternal impact. Follow me today as I lead you. Get ready for an adventure.

Are you currently considering several options at work or school or in your personal life? Take time to pray about them and seek counsel from others who know you and love Jesus. Don’t wait forever before making a decision, but do pause and listen. Don’t be in a rush, and don’t be afraid to wait and be still.
