A few years ago, you couldn’t look anywhere without seeing the four letter acronym WWJD. It was printed on wristbands, t-shirts, bags, banners, bookmarks, you name it. What Would Jesus Do?!
Then suddenly, just as quickly as it appeared, it disappeared.
I’ve noticed recently that sometimes my faith can be just like this, a FAD. One moment I am standing on His word, calling out to Him for all things and not worrying or stressing about anything. Then something unexpected comes along. I am angry, hurt, or confused, and before I know it, I am on the phone with a friend and she is full of answers that start with “what I would do if I were you…”
Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you. (Philippians 4:9 NIV)
A wise man once told me, “Don’t go to people, go to God.” It doesn’t get much simpler than that. No matter what you are going through, God can and will handle it. You see, it’s always easy for others to tell you what they would do if faced with your situation, concern or issue. However, there isn’t anyone that can give you the word that you need to get through but our Heavenly Father.
Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night. That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither— whatever they do prospers. (Psalm 1:1-3 NIV)
Thank You for always being there for me when I need You, even when I am not deserving. Thank You for Your Living Word that I can go to for whatever I need, whenever I need it. I pray that You will continue to impress upon me that You are my sole provider of all things and I need to seek guidance from You before I go to anyone else. In Jesus’ Name, Amen!
Ladies, today I EMPOWER you to seek ye first the kingdom of GOD! No matter how big or small, nothing is impossible for our heavenly father. Before making a decision, go to Him in prayer or try to find a scripture that speaks to the situations that you are dealing with. I EMPOWER you to go to the Word of God to answer WWJD and not seek answers from others for what they would do.
What areas do you know that you need to ask yourself WWJD, versus asking your friends what they would do?
