The scripture for today, April 19, is 1st Corinthians 4:19a as found in the New Testament of the Bible:
“But I will come to you very soon, if the Lord is willing.”
God knows each step you take through life. He knows all the roads you take in each phase of your life, and what is awaiting you at the other end. The road you are on today may lead you to where you do not want to be. But not being able to see the future, you do not always know that.
The writer of the above scripture was telling his friends he was coming to see them soon “if the Lord is willing.” Sometimes a decision seems so right. But there may be danger on the way. Or there may be a different road to take leading you to somewhere even better.
Thank God he does not say yes to all of our prayers. Try to remember, when you ask God for things, to add “Your will be done”. His will is for you to have the best life possible.
