|So now that you’ve gathered everything, (and may still be gathering things/people/situations) it is time for you to determine if it stays or goes. I wouldn’t dare tell you to do this in and of yourself. Instead, let’s take these things to God in prayer. Let’s ask God for His Spirit to help us sift through the burdens, problems, frustrations, and weights that we have been carrying. Let’s ask the Spirit to guide us to the truth of what and who needs to go with us into this next season.
This is important because it is so easy to get overwhelmed and lose sight of the assignments and purposes God has given us. We also let the "little foxes" distract us from the more important things. When we don’t regularly evaluate the purpose of things, people and situations, we sometimes allow these things to become fortified in our mind, or worse, take precedence over God.
Lord, thank You for loving me so much. I ask that You help me discern and sort through what is part of your plan for my life right now and what is not. I ask that You guide me and equip me with wisdom to know Your plan and Your will. I thank You that I am always led by Your Spirit and not my emotions, will or my own understanding of any and every situation. Thank You that I move forward and progress in preparation for Your best for my life. Thank You for grace to move forward. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
