Thought and Prayer for Tuesday, February 5, 2013
Tuesday, February 05, 2013
Sometimes we don’t take time to speak out or to do things to help others because we feel like no one else is doing anything or we worry about what others will think. It’s okay to speak out and to help. It is okay to take time to share our stories with others so God will use us to help them. It’s okay to reach out and show others we care. We shouldn’t worry about what others think or that no one else is doing anything. All we need to know is that God wants us to do it and that it is okay.
1 Peter 3:14 “But even if you suffer for doing what is right, God will reward you for it. So don’t worry or be afraid of their threats.” (NLT)
Dear Lord, help us today not to worry about what others think. Help us to take the time to do what You call us to do to help others. Help us to know it is okay if we step away from what we think we want to do or what others want us to do. Help us not to worry what anyone thinks but to boldly take time to make a difference in someone else’s life. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
Decide today to do something that is for God rather than man.
Know that there will be opposition in anything you do. It’s okay to have opposition from others but it’s not okay to oppose God.
God can help us to do what is right and good. Man doesn’t always have our best interest at heart.
Galatians 1:10 “Obviously, I’m not trying to win the approval of people, but of God. If pleasing people were my goal, I would not be Christ’s servant.” (NLT)
