Today's verse is John 5:30: "I can do nothing on my own. As I hear, I judge, and my judgment is just, because I seek not my own will but the will of him who sent me." My child, this verse shows my desire for all those who are in me, as I am in my Father. I can do nothing on my own. I am totally dependent on my Father and his strength. He has given me the authority over all humanity to judge them. I alone hold the responsibility to eternal life or death for all people (vs 29). My judgment is perfect in every possible way, but only because I seek the will of my Father in heaven, the one who sent me.
I want you too to realize that you can do nothing on your own. Be dependent on me, as I am dependent on my Father. I find my life from my Father. I want you to do the same with me.
I am your source of life. Apart from me, you can do nothing. In me alone do you live and move and have your being. Be still today and know that I am your God. It is I who made you, not you yourself. I am the vine, you are the branch. Abide in me. Stay connected to me. Rest totally in me. From me alone, you will find your strength and hope.
Therefore, don't seek your own will. Seek me, my kingdom and my will for your life. Do so with all your heart, as I sought the Father's will with all my heart. I do have a plan for your every step, your every day. As you seek my kingdom and will for your life, trust me with all the secondary and tertiary details and needs. They are not unimportant to me. I know you need them. I care for everything in your life. Just seek me first. Then the other things will be added to you, but only as you seek me first in your life.
Listen to my voice today. Go to where I tell you to go. Feel my promptings, as your eternal guide, to go touch another with my love. Go find a hurt and heal it. Go find a need and fill it. Walk in my grace. Be my hands and feet today. Let my life flow through you, as the Father's life flowed through me to others. Don't you see? This is largely my will for your life each day, to be an instrument of my healing and peace to the world.
I love you. I care for you.
You can trust me today.
