Daily Devotional – 4/11/16 “Lord, have your way!”

I’m sitting here waiting on God to give me a word for His people. As I wait with my Word open and my fingers on the keyboard, I’m simply repeating; Lord have mercy. Have mercy Lord in the lives of those who need you on today. Lord, have mercy on those who don’t know you in the midst of their sins. Lord, have mercy on the father sitting in jail after he was caught stealing trying to feed his family. Have mercy Jesus, in the life of the pastor who is dealing with more problems than his/her praise can cover. Lord have mercy! Not only have mercy but Lord have your way for the single mother who’s looking at her checking account with $8 and pay day isn’t until Friday. Have your way Lord for that family trying to figure out the rent that was due last Tuesday. Have your way Jesus for the person dealing with sickness and disease. Have your way Lord for the sister who has claimed today as being her last day to live due to suicidal thoughts. Have your way in the brother who is being bullied. Have your way in the daughter diagnosed with cancer. Have your way with the son who is battling an addiction. Have your way in the man or woman of God who is still fighting worldly demons. Have your way Father!

I don’t know who you are but God is about to walk around your house, He’s about to shift some things in your spirit, He’s about to disconnect some folk who’ve been sucking up your air, He’s about to dwindle your contact list down, He’s about to shut off some places you don’t need to go anymore, He’s about to rid you of every toxic relationship you’ve been in; God is about to have mercy on your life! All you have to do is receive the reconstructive surgery that’s about to happen. But this time when you wake up, groggy from the anesthesia of the Holy Spirit; don’t go back to what you used to do and who you used to be. This time, trust God! This time, believe in God! This time, allow the mercy that’s manifesting in your life to move! God is about to have mercy on your soul. God is about to have His way in your life but it’s only if you allow Him too. He won’t come in unless you let Him. You won’t find Him unless you seek Him. You won’t get near Him unless you humble yourself. And you won’t reach Him unless you pray. Then He’ll show up! Lord, have your way…

“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” – 2 Chronicles 7:14
