Son, let Me transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you can know My will for your life. Be careful not to think you are better than you really are. Be honest in your evaluation of yourself, measuring yourself by My standards and not by other men. Speak only what I have given you to say. Don’t pretend to love others, but really love them. Hate what is evil, and stand for what is good. Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying. When My people are in need, be ready to help them. When people hurt you, don’t curse them, but pray that I will bless them. Don’t be too proud to enjoy the company of poor people, and never think you know it all! Do everything in such a way that everyone can see you are honorable. Don’t let evil conquer you, but conquer evil by doing good.
My call for your life can never be withdrawn. You are a builder, just like I am a builder. When I came into the world I was a carpenter’s son, and worked at building things from wood, just like you do. So never think of what I have called you to do as something less. Keep your eyes on Me, because you will be tested by the enemy. He will try to make you fearful, and make you feel compelled to speak and do foolish things. Remember, I am ready to help you, and nothing can hinder Me.
Now stand up, and I will show you My power and might; for I am your Judge, Lawgiver, and your King. Search My book and see what I am going to do. My Spirit will make it all come true. My heavens proclaim My righteousness, and soon every nation will see My glory.
Lord, it is impossible for me to understand Your decisions and Your ways! For no one can know all Your thoughts. Who knows enough to give You advice? You have told me that You are my sure foundation, and all I need to do is ask for Your wisdom and knowledge. Thank You for Your care and salvation for my family and me.
