How has your week gone? Did you hit all of the points on your 'Lord, what would you have me do' list?
I must admit, I did not. Truth be told, I didn't make a list. But, I think that is a good idea. Let us start doing that and at the end of the week or three days, or whatever time limit GOD gives you, check to see how well we have pleased GOD.
I will get us started. My list is as follows. . .
1. Tell five people that Jesus lives inside of me and He asked me to tell them He loves them.
2. Read the Book of Daniel.
3. Don't eat out for five days. Personally, I need to be a better Stewart over the money GOD gives me.
Now, go make your own 'Lord, what would you have me do' list and let us come back this time next week to see how successful we were at pleasing GOD by being obedient to His Will.
You can share your list but, only if you want. There may be some personal things that only you and GOD need to know. Just do the best you can at successfully completing it----one minute, hour, day at a time. If we don't succeed, we can discuss what kept you/us from doing what God wanted. The time will be used to identify root causes of disobedience and we can open up a dialog to get strength and encouragement from on another.
Let us PRAY...
Father God, thank you for another day, another gift, and another opportunity to please and glorify you. Lord, we took last week and have did what we wanted and not what you have asked of us. For this, we ask your forgiveness. You give us all that we need to fight the Christian fight and the Holy Spirit is leading me to start this list so that I may begin to do other wonderful things in the name of JESUS. God, build us up where we are torn down, give us the wings of an eagle, create in us a clean heart and help us is to put on the full armor of Your Being to complete this list and anything else you will have us to do. In the name of your Son and the SAVIOUR of the world Jesus. AMEN.
