In my quiet time with God this week I keep ‘hearing’ the word steadfast.  


I searched scripture for the word steadfast….there are many verses, but the one that spoke loudest to me is:

‘Create in me a pure heart, O God, 
and renew a steadfast spirit within me’~Psalm 51:10

Everyday is a new start….forgiveness…grace…mercy…all through God.

He is always rolling out His plan…but I make the choice whether I walk in it or make my own path. Keeping my eyes always on Him….steadfast.

I am reading Lysa Terkeurst’s new book ‘The Best Yes‘. There is so much knowledge and encouragement in this book.  Here is a tidbit of her encouragement!

If your heart and your mind are aligned 
in the direction of God, 
you don’t have to agonize to the point of paralysis 
over the decisions before you.  
We will steer where we stare. 
So stare mightily at God and His plan.  
And if you don’t know His plan, 
stare mightily at living out His Word in your life
 and His plan will unfold day by day.  
Decision by decision.

Steadfast is what I want to be for Him. 

Unwavering in my loyalty to Him. 

Committed to being all He has designed me to be. 

Firm in my faith that He will take care of me. 

Constant in believing He has a plan and purpose and wants me to have His best.

I believe I will stare mightily at living out His Word and watch His plan unfold!
