Baking a cake requires a recipe. Gathering the utensils and ingredients, carefully measuring and mixing, and then baking it for the correct length of time are all critical for its success. Too many eggs, omitting the sugar, or not measuring the flour correctly can cause it to flop.
A peaceful, pleasant life requires following a “recipe” too. Randomly picking and choosing which ingredients to add or omit on our own can be disastrous.
The Word of God has the recipe for a balanced, flourishing, “delicious” life. Allowing God to add and measure what goes into our lives brings peace, joy, and love. He leaves nothing to chance, but carefully mixes all things together for our good (Romans 8:28).
Prayer: Dear Lord, We trust You with our lives. May we always be pliable as you work in us. Every day give us the exact ingredients that we need.
