God’s ultimate will over our lives:  

Today’s episode of Redeemed & Restored is entitled ‘breaking up before we ever dated’. It’s hard to separate what we want and desire from God’s ultimate will over our lives. We must surrender and sacrifice our wants to align ourselves with what He has for us, even if it hurts!

How do we do it? Are your thoughts in alignment with God? To read His Word is to find favor, to resign our control, and to fully surrender. Jesus asks us to wave the white flag to follow Him and let Him rule over our hearts. Stay surrendered and rejoice in His will for you!

Come along with me as I discuss surrendering to God’s ultimate will using His word.

Topics Discussed

  • What is God’s will?
  • What does God want from me?
  • What should I do?

Takeaways + Highlights

  • Romans 12:2: “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.”
  • Luke 22:42: “Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.”

Welcome, I'm Athena!

I start each day by tithing the first hour to the Lord in prayer, reading the word, doing word studies of the Text, and asking God how I can live out what I am reading. This time is usually met with meditation on devotionals that are usually written by dead guys like Oswald Chambers, CS Lewis, Charles Spurgeon, AW Tozer, and Andrew Murray.

Right now, I’m reading a daily devotional with a friend called Tozer on the Almighty God for my focus for the day. It's fun to see individually what pulls us in to spur one another on to good deeds!

The Bible is filled with action steps to walk out in practical and intentional ways. This sets my day in motion to walk it out! I hope this is your heart, too.

Consider this a personal invitation to join me in this journey!
