On a daily basis, there are things that come against us and distract us, and attempt to pull us away from Christ. Thatâ€™s why every day we have to make the choice to follow Him. Sometimes itâ€™s easy to think, â€œwell, I go to church regularly,â€ or â€œI read my Bible.â€ The Christian life isnâ€™t about how we live on the weekends, itâ€™s how we live every single day. Are you spending time with God daily? Are you reaching out and putting others first? Are you sowing seeds to help those in need?
Today, if you know you need to make some adjustments in your daily walk with God, the good news is that you can start right now. Simply turn to Him and make the commitment to follow Him moment by moment. Let Him direct your steps and follow that inner prompting of the Holy Spirit. Make the choice every day to follow Godâ€™s will, and watch what He will do on your behalf!
â€œThen he said to them all: â€˜Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me.â€™â€Â (Luke 9:23, NIV)Â
Yahweh, thank You for another day to serve and follow You. Father, search my heart and mind right now, and remove anything that would keep me from You. God, make me Your disciple, not just on the weekend but daily. I commit to set my mind on You daily, following Your steps and Your will, in Christâ€™s Name! Amen.
