Danger of Preferences
ATTACHED TO GOD’S PREFERENCE – One of the most dangerous mindsets I’ve ever had is being attached to my preference. Preferences can be really dangerous. Why? Because I’ve never known what’s best for me. Only God does. Sure, I’ve been attached to lots of things, but they weren’t what I was really looking for. What I really wanted was God! And His will is the best of all options. Now. . . my overwhelming preference in life is to fully embrace God’s preference. Every day, I choose to wake up excited to see what My Heavenly Father has picked out for me. And God always gives His best to those who live the choice with Him! 100% of the time, His best for me is the script He’s already written. His will is perfect. The Bible says, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love Him.” If I can’t fully imagine it why would I ever trust in my pre-conceived preference? Keep an open hand and an open heart and God will lead you.
