Influences for Good

"Ever remember that Jesus is your helper. No one understands as well as He your peculiarities of character. He is watching over you, and if you are willing to be guided by Him, He will throw around you influences for good that will enable you to accomplish all His will for you." -Messages to Young People, pg 17.

I never thought of it before. God throwing good influences around me? Enabling me to accomplish all His will for me? If I am willing to be guided by Him? 

I don't have to be surrounded by evil influences, nor become numb to poor decisions. I don't have to accept this world's definition of "good" or "ideal." God's willing to send spiritual backup. Such a powerful thought & refreshing truth. 

I am willing to seek His will. And He will send those influences. And in many ways, as I think of it, He already has. I'm so thankful.
