Good Morning! “You won’t spend the rest of your lives chasing your own desires, but you will be anxious to do the will of God. You have had enough in the past of the evil things that godless people enjoy—their immorality and lust, their feasting and drunkenness and wild parties, and their terrible worship of idols.” 1 Peter 4:2-3 NLT
The challenge this weekend: Be anxious to do the will of God.
There’s a period in our lives when we must decide if we are going to stop playing church or disguising ourselves as Christians and actually start being the church and a Christian.
It is time to walk away from the things that keep us captive to our old environment, way of thinking and disregard for the Holy Spirit’s guidance in our lives and truly be a representation of Christ in all our ways.
If you are walking in Christ you should see the tide changing, creating a wave of spiritual maturity, security and faith in your life. Don’t stop there, because the enemy won’t be happy that you are following Christ. However, stay focused and attuned to the Lord and what he is calling you to do. If you don’t know what that call is – keep praying for clarity.
Dear Lord, thank you for getting us through another week. Lord even in our struggles you have given us strength to carry on. Lord, your word is powerful and is filled with promises that remind us of your love toward us. Lord, I ask that you continue to show us your faithfulness, continue to pour out your love toward us, continue to strengthen us and to give us courage to follow you when we encounter difficulties and when everyone seems to be going left. Lord help us this weekend to live a life that honors you in our speech, tears, attitude and compassion toward others. Lord let others see Christ in us. Cover us with your shield of protection, touch and heal our ill family members, and minister to our family members, friends, co-workers who are broken, hurt, lost and are without hope – touch them and begin to do a mighty work in their lives. Lord I also lift up our country… In Jesus name, Amen!
Have a wonderful weekend. Keep praying! Keep seeking! Keep trusting!
