ALIGN WITH GOD
“I will bring the blind by a way they did not know; I will lead them in paths they have not known. I will make darkness light before them, And crooked places straight. These things I will do for them, and not forsake them.”Isaiah 42:16
To live life abundantly, to experience fulfilment in life, the believer must come into alignment with his Father. To be in alignment with God is to choose His way over the way of this world even if you don’t understand it.
Being in alignment is being in a position of agreement. Alignment with God can then be defined as agreeing with God. It means allowing God to arrange and coordinate your life.
Living in alignment allows God’s sovereignty over your life. This then leads to having a thought life that agrees with His thoughts towards you.
Aligning with God is not a one-time thing, it’s the result of a series of processes, some of which we have discussed in the last couple of days.
Knowing and following God’s word, yielding to his leading, Prayer and Confession. In fact, alignment with God is built on the table of yielding. Those opportunities you have to yield to the nudging of the Spirit are opportunities to further synchronize yourself with our heavenly Father.
Aligning with God is simply living life the way God wants us to. His word, the Bible reveals a large part of that to us, so simply following the instructions and admonitions from the word of God naturally sets us on that path. However, we don’t just stop there, in our daily walk with God, we must desire to know what is on God’s mind per time and step into what God will have us do.
Prayer is an avenue to bring God’s will into action, in the place of prayer, we submit our will to God’s will.
Remember when Jesus had to pray that God’s will be done even though he was weak. Strength to carry out God’s will is received in the place of prayer. Glory to God

CONFESSION: HENCEFORTH, I SUBMIT MYSELF TO THE RULERSHIP OF GOD’S WORD. THE WORD FORMS MY THINKING, GUIDES AND DICTATES MY MINDSET IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
