Prayer is the most important ministry God can call us to perform. Jesus prayed while He lived on earth, and He continues to intercede for us even now (Hebrews 7:24-25).
As we clothe our self with the righteousness and divinity of Jesus, we will stop making the needs of our carnal flesh a priority in our life (Romans 13:14).
Putting on the armor of God, we can stand firm in the face of both adversity and temptation (Ephesians 6:11). God’s Spirit gives us both the desire and the ability to submit to God and to resist the lies of Satan’s deception (Philippians 2:12-13; James 4:7).
Living in the center of God’s will for each moment of our life, we live in obedience and reap the benefits of a life hidden with Christ in God (Colossians 3:3-4). We earn God’s pleasure with our faith (Hebrews 11:6).
Living out God’s purpose and walking in His plans for our life without negative emotions and unrealistic expectations (John 10:27-28), we allow Him the opportunity to work in and through us.
Enjoying the four dimensions of God’s love for us, we rejoice that nothing can ever separate us from His unconditional love (Romans 8:35-39). He has a perfect and fulfilling life all ready for us.
Father God, we thank you for loving us unconditionally and guiding us to walk in Your will through each moment of our day. The precious blood of Jesus bought the possibility of our relationship with You (John 17:23), and for this we are eternally grateful.
Help us to walk in Your ways, to obey Your Words and to never take for granted the atoning sacrifice that Jesus made on the cross for us. Direct Your Saints to live in harmony, so that other people will see our love for one another and believe in You as well.
Thought for the Day:
Looking to other people to meet our needs is a burden that they cannot carry and is an unhealthy practice for us to adopt. We are capable of meeting our own needs and trusting God to open the doors we need to meet them.
