Thought and Prayer for Tuesday, August 7, 2012
Tuesday, August 07, 2012
When we are feeling apart from others and from God, we need to think back on our day or even our week. We need to review what we have done lately that has removed us from where God wants us to be. We may find we are focusing more on our problems than we are on God. We may find we are living for the things of the world, rather than God. We may find we have been spending more time and money on what we want rather than what God wants. If we decide today to spend time with Him, live for Him and focus on Him, He will bring us back to where we need to be to live on purpose for Him.
1 John 5:21 “Dear children, keep away from anything that might take God’s place in your hearts.” (NLT)
Dear Lord, we know we stray. We know we get off track. We know there are times when we focus more on the world than we focus on You. Please help us today to come back to You. Help us to begin the day talking to You and listening to You. You are all we need and You have a plan for us today. We want to do Your will today and stay close to You. Help us to make a difference. In Jesus’ name.
