If I am going to take time to ask Jesus what to do with my life, I should be prepared to stop and listen to what he wants me to do. This often means serving other people as if they are more important than me. Putting them first and myself last. God will then be providing for me as I serve others. My true master will be serving me as I serve others.
Lord, I fall so short in the area of asking and listening to what you really have to say after I pray. So often, I pray and want to hear your answer, but only if is what I already have in mind. Today, father I ask that you would open my heart and ears to what you are calling me to do today. Clear away any of my own desires, so that I may hear only you. Forgive my selfishness and the wrong desires that often cloud my mind. I want to be your servant and not a servant of my own needs and desires. I am thankful that your ways are higher and better than mine and that your grace is sufficient for me today.
In Jesus Name I pray,
