Daily Word – August 8th 2018

May he equip you with all you need for doing his will.
May he produce in you,  through the power of Jesus Christ,
every good thing that is pleasing to him. All glory to him forever and ever! Amen.

Hebrews 13:21 

I love it. As Christians we have been called to be His disciples and help, “His will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.” Yet, at the same time God is commanding us to live for Him; He is there equipping, encouraging and empowering us! Jesus gave us the Holy Spirit to guide us, comfort us, and assist us. Peter writes, “By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life.” Paul adds, “For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” I am not sure what you believe about yourself, but this is true. God created you and wants you to live for Him. You are His representative here on earth and He has given you everything you need to fulfill your destiny. Today choose to live for Him in all you do. He has equipped you to do it.

1.Read a passage of scripture, for example the verse in this post. What is this passage saying? Take at least 2 minutes to absorb what it is saying.

2. Invite God to reveal your heart and ask yourself: “Is there a truth in this passage that I haven’t fully embraced?” If so, embrace it by telling God you are committed to it. Ruminate on the truth for at least 2 minutes until you absorb it.

3. Invite God to reveal your heart and ask yourself: “Is there a virtue or action in this passage that I am not fully embracing?” If so, embrace it by telling God you are committed to it. Determine the next step in committing to the virtue or action and then take it as soon as possible.

4. Ask God to show you anything haven’t fully embraced as well as anything else He desires and sit with God for at least sixty seconds. If He gives an impression then cooperate accordingly.
