Happy Monday! “Dear brothers and sisters, I want you to understand that the gospel message I preach is not based on mere human reasoning. I received my message from no human source, and no one taught me. Instead, I received it by direct revelation from Jesus Christ. You know what I was like when I followed the Jewish religion—how I violently persecuted God’s church. I did my best to destroy it. I was far ahead of my fellow Jews in my zeal for the traditions of my ancestors. But even before I was born, God chose me and called me by his marvelous grace. Then it pleased him to reveal his Son to me so that I would proclaim the Good News about Jesus to the Gentiles. When this happened, I did not rush out to consult with any human being. Nor did I go up to Jerusalem to consult with those who were apostles before I was. Instead, I went away into Arabia, and later I returned to the city of Damascus. Galatians 1:11-17 NLT
Paul was a zealous Jew who understood the Law of Moses and the Rabbinical traditions. He persecuted Christians until one day the Lord touched him and changed his life forever. By the grace of God, Paul was humbled, his eyes were open, he received the Lord Jesus Christ as his savior and he never looked back. He preached the good news to non-Jews (the gentiles) and shared the gospel message with zeal.
Remember God chose you too. Is the Lord calling you today to follow Him? Are you willing to turn away from the things you know to follow God’s plan for your life?
God can use anyone he pleases. Will you let him use you?
Dear Lord, thank you for chosing us and calling us to a purpose. Thank you for uniquely designing us to be vessels in this world. Be with us today and continue to strengthen our faith. Guide our thoughts and give us peace in every area of our lives as we seek to follow you. Build our character and strip away things that have flawed it. Help us to turn away from things that do not bring you glory. Lord we lift up the city of Las Vegas and the families who have lost their love ones. We pray for healing for those in the hospital. We also continue to pray for those recovering from natural disasters, the sick, the ones living In chronic pain, the homeless and the broken-hearted. In Jesus name, Amen!
Keep seeking God’s truth! Keep trusting God’s word! Keep praying.
We would love to pray for you. Please send your prayer request to PrayerRequest@maryewhiteministries.com
