Good Monday Morning my friends,
I think in life there are times that we get lost in people. As believers we sometimes lose sight of what’s right and put more of our faith in the person that delivers the message instead of the message itself. One of the things that I love about my Pastor Clark Bosher is that he constantly reminds us that it’s not about him. He was called to tell a lost world about the saving grace of Jesus Christ and if we’re putting our faith in him then we’re going to be let down because he’s not perfect. He tells not to put him on a pedestal because he is no more saved than anyone else. I think sometimes we forget that our church leaders were at one time lost just like you & I were before we accepted Christ as our Savior.
God wants you to be dependent upon Him. He wants us to call upon Him when we’re in need. He not only wants us to call upon Him when we’re facing what seems like insurmountable obstacles and but when we’re facing minor ant hills as well. Taking a couple of minutes when you wake-up to call upon God to ask Him to bless every step and to lead you away from sin & temptation could remove those potential mountains from your day. Knowing that God is going to bless your day with these things allows you to face your day with great confidence.
In today’s Scripture we see how we should live each day. We should not put our trust in man. We should not get caught up in our troubles but instead put our hope in Him. We should sing praises to God as long as we live. We should go through our day confident and happy simply knowing that we are a child of God.
“While I live will I praise The Lord: I will sing praises unto my God while I have any being. Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help. His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish. Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the Lord his God:” (Psalms 146:2-5)
My CHALLENGE PRAYER for you… Praise God and ask Him to guide you through your day.
I hope you all have an MAGNIFICENT day.. Blessings & much love….D
Live your life like it’s your LAST 24!!!!
