Verse of the Day
Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation, now that you have tasted that the Lord is good. I Peter 2:2-3 (NIV)
Dearest loving Father, today I choose to obey You quickly. I trust that You are good and desire good things for me. Thank You for ordering my steps. Thank You for protecting me. Thank You doing a work in me and through me. I turn my heart and mind toward You right now. Search me; know me. Show me any areas of my life where I have not been obedient to You. I commit to follow You in the big things and the little things so that I can live the blessed life You have prepared for me .
Father, thank You that I do have a choice. I can choose to follow You every day. Help me see all the opportunities ahead of me. Help me to see all of the hundreds of actions I make every day as choices. Thank You that with Your Holy Spirit I am not powerless, I don’t have to be the victim of negative habits. I pray that You will help me, guide me, and give me strength to choose wisely in everything I do today. Help me to put my complete trust in You to enable me to overcome the obstacles Satan puts in the way to defeat me. Strengthen my faith when I face obstacles that can cause me great heartache and overwhelm me. Help me to put my complete trust in You knowing that You care for me and will lead me through the difficult times in life. I’m not always as good as I know I should be. I act terrible at times. Please forgive and accept me, Lord. I love You, and I want to make You proud of me.
Thank you for their affirmation of your presence among us. Thank you for being with us always, in times of triumph and times of loss, in times of rejoicing and times of temptation, in good times and bad times. Lord, it’s hard, sometimes, to sense your presence or know what you’re doing when our life doesn’t go as we had hoped. We can feel discouraged and confused. We can wonder what you’re doing, or even where you are. As we walk through these times, Lord, help us to trust you, to seek you, to sense your presence. May we be attentive to what you are doing in our lives, to what you are saying to us. Thank you, Lord, for working all things together for good. Help me, Lord, to be discerning and wise. Help me to see where and how you are at work around me. May I learn to speak about you in ways that affirm others even as they affirm your presence in their lives. I pray in Your Son’s precious name. Amen
