Good morning! My prayer each day is to follow the Lord with all my heart, all my soul and all my mind. Some days I fail. Yet, I continue to persevere and pursue the Lord as the Holy Spirit convicts and guides me. His mercies are new for all of us each morning. Enjoy today!
“1 Joyful are people of integrity,
who follow the instructions of the Lord.
2 Joyful are those who obey his laws
and search for him with all their hearts.
3 They do not compromise with evil,
and they walk only in his paths.
4 You have charged us
to keep your commandments carefully.
5 Oh, that my actions would consistently
reflect your decrees!
6 Then I will not be ashamed
when I compare my life with your commands.
7 As I learn your righteous regulations,
I will thank you by living as I should!
8 I will obey your decrees.
Please don’t give up on me!” Psalm 119:1-8 NLT.
Living our lives focused on serving the Lord requires us to die to “self” daily. What are some of the things you need to remove so that you can pursue joy with the Lord?
Lord God, thank you for your love toward us. Thank you for new mercies each day. Lord, thank you for allowing us to search for you and learn about your righteousness. Father, we desire to walk in integrity and to follow your instructions – Lord, lead us in all your ways. Equip us with your word and firmly plant it in our hearts so that we may use it to destroy the lies of the enemy and the seeds of doubt. Lord, protect our homes, our families, the lost, the least and the last. Lord, we need you. We need spiritual transformation in our homes, on our jobs, in our finances, in our health and our minds. Lord, like the psalmist wrote “please don’t give up on me (us)!” Lord, continue to work in us and change us to be more like you. May our actions reflect your decrees. In Jesus name, amen.
Keep seeking! Keep trusting! Keep praying!
