let Him put it together …

I want my living and giving to be a sweet aroma to my God.

I was just reminded of this – that there is a fragrance to our offerings … they’re either a stench or a fragrant odor to God.

I have a couple of decisions I will be making in the next little while that could greatly alter my life. I’ve talked to God about them, but realized this morning I really hadn’t made definite requests concerning them. How can I ask God’s direction if I’ve not asked a specific question. Part of why I haven’t is because, somewhere in the recesses of my soul, I wasn’t sure I’d like His thoughts. Now that’s not really true, because He’s my everything. In my heart of hearts I only want what He wants.

I remembered a phrase that I’d used years ago when making some fairly important decisions about my life that really helped put everything in perspective, and expressed what I REALLY wanted … “whatever is best for the Kingdom” … meaning, whatever will work best with what God has on His heart that He wants and needs to do.

An excitement and a peace has begun to roll over my soul as I know I’m moving in the right direction now. …

I’m saying, “Father God, I really want my living and giving to be a sweet fragrance to you. I’m asking you for Your Mercy and Grace to help me formulate my requests, and, to completely resolve that I will only do what’s best for the Kingdom. That’s what I desire in my heart of hearts. I’m not an island to myself so the decisions I make will affect those around me as well as me. Most of all, what I do will affect Your Big Plan. You do have an Over-all Master Plan, and I definitely want to be in line with that. I take this. I have it. I thank You, and I forgive and love like You forgive and love me. All in Jesus name.”

PHILIPPIANS 4:18   …  I have everything I need and am amply supplied, now that I have received from Epaphroditus the gifts you sent me. [They are the] FRAGRANT ODOR of an offering and sacrifice WHICH GOD WELCOMES and IN WHICH HE DELIGHTS.   AMP
