Looking at the Word - Verses from: Psalms, I Corinthians, & Ephesians
Chosen by God!
“Desperate, I throw myself on you: you are my God! Hour by hour I place my days in your hand, safe from the hands out to get me. Warm me, your servant, with a smile; save me because you love me.” (Psalm 31:14-16 MSG)
I am desperate for You, Lord. My trust is in You alone. You are my God. I place every moment of my days in Your hand, seeking Your direction for my life, trusting You to keep me safe. I desire Your will to be done in every area of my life.
“All of you, slave and free both, were once held hostage in a sinful society. Then a huge sum was paid out for your ransom. So please don’t, out of old habit, slip back into being or doing what everyone else tells you. Friends, stay where you were called to be. God is there. Hold the high ground with him at your side.” (I Corinthians 7:23-24 MSG)
I will be who You called me to be remembering the price You paid for me. I have Your approval and acceptance so I will not seek man’s approval or acceptance. I stand with You staying where I am called to be. I want to be wherever You are. Thank You for being at my side always. My eyes are on You!
“So be careful how you act; these are difficult days. Don’t be fools; be wise: make the most of every opportunity you have for doing good. Don’t act thoughtlessly, but try to find out and do whatever the Lord wants you to.”(Ephesians 5:15-17 TLB)
Lord, help me to be wise, making the most of every opportunity to do good, point people to You, speak life and words of encouragement to all I come in contact with. Help me to recognize opportunities. Show me what You want me to do and I will do it. I am diligently seeking Your face. Let my heart beat in sync with Your heart so much that Your thoughts become my actions.
