January 31, 2013 ABOVE AND BEYOND
We can do what God asks of us. We can live a life according to His will. We can do above and beyond what others think we can do when we rely on God to help us. We should list things every day that would be above and beyond a normal, average day. We should be willing and able to stand up for all we believe in and take that step of faith higher giving God our all by helping others using our talents and stories.
Ephesians 4:22-24 “throw off your old sinful nature and your former way of life, which is corrupted by lust and deception. Instead, let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes. Put on your new nature, created to be like God—truly righteous and holy.” (NLT)
Dear Lord, help us today to know what Your will is for us. Help us to know what we can do that will help others. Help us to take action for You today and not for our own selfish gain. We can’t do it without You. Allow Your Holy Spirit to work through us today to live out today and the rest of our lives according to Your will. We open our hearts, our minds, our spirits to You, Lord, so we can be who You want us to be. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
