Thought and Prayer for Tuesday, January 1, 2013
Tuesday, January 01, 2013
We all want better things. We all want a better life. None of us planned when we were younger to have struggles and fail at life but there are times when we do. We want something good but we are not always willing to do the work for it. It seems that we want change but we are not willing to do anything about it. We want success but we are not willing to take action or to make changes in our lives. If we truly want a better life, we need to give our lives to God, seek Him and take the action He wants us to take. Having faith in God is good but we need to take action.
James 2:26 “Just as the body is dead without breath, so also faith is dead without good works.” (NLT)
Dear Lord, help us today as we begin a new year. Help us to know what better plans You have for us. Help us to know where we need to make changes. Help us to know that by helping others, we can help ourselves. We don’t want to be lazy. We want to take action and live as You want us to live. We pray You will allow the Holy Spirit to work in our lives today and all throughout the year so we are not just talking about change but we are making a change for the better. Thank You, Lord. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
