TOPIC: Submit to His Dream for You
Scripture: Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths (Proverbs 3:5-6 AMPC).

Have you ever asked yourself, “Is my life in alignment with God’s perfect will for me?” It’s important to be sure. Jesus said, “If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine…” (John 7:17). So, if you’re willing to do His will, He’ll teach you.
But sometimes, there’re those who are afraid to let God have His way in their lives. They think He’ll change their dream that they’ve so nursed all their lives. They feel He might lead them to become something they don’t want. Well, that’s because they don’t know Him; if you don’t know Him, you can’t trust Him. But if you ever get to know Him, you’d learn to trust Him.
All He ever wants is the best for you. He’s more ambitious for your success than you could ever be. The day I discovered this truth, I said, “Dear Lord Jesus, now I trust you with my life.” I wanted to be a success for Him, but He was more ambitious for my success than I could have been. I found out He loved me more than I loved myself; wiser than I could ever be, and I became bold and focused!
Remember, He created the whole world, including you. He knows everything inside you. Not only does He know everything about you, He knows everything about life. All He wants is that you say, “Yes, Lord, I’m ready.” He’s experienced in dealing with all kinds of people, and He knows exactly what to do with someone like you.
Trust Him with your life. Stay at the centre of His will, and you’ll never lose. 1 Peter 2:6 says, “… he that believeth on him shall not be confounded”; that means you’ll never be disgraced or put to the blush for trusting in Him. Therefore, be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and submit to His dream for you.
Dear heavenly Father, what comfort, confidence, and blessed assurance to know that I can trust you with my life; the only One who’s faithful and true. The future belongs to you; therefore, I put myself into your guiding arms, under the lordship of love, trusting you infinitely to be led by your Word and your Spirit, as I fulfil my destiny in you, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
