Daily devotional: God's ways

Scripture
We use God's mighty weapons, not worldly weapons, to knock down the strongholds of human reasoning and to destroy false arguments.
2 Corinthians 10:4 NLT

Observation
I want everyone to know God. People have different obstacles that keep them from knowing God. The wrong approach would be to just rely on my intellect, speaking skills, etc. in attempt to convince someone to know and accept Jesus into their life.

Application
Pray that the Holy Spirit will enable people to be open to God, to His powerful message of reconciliation and offer of real life both now and for eternity. Only after I pray can I then follow the Lord's leading to share His good news, and then trust Him to take care of the results.

Prayer
Lord, I love you. I am grateful that You desire to have a personal relationship with each one of us, and that You reached down into humanity to freely offer us reconciliation and new life with You. I submit my ways and my efforts to You. In its place, I choose to take up Your ways and Your power to accomplish all that You want in and through me. May I always remember to go about things using Your ways rather than my own ways.
