Do you use God as a good luck charm, or have you allowed Him to be Lord over your whole life?

Proverbs 3:6-7 

In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths. Be not wise in your own eyes; reverently fear and worship the Lord and turn [entirely] away from evil. 

#PrayerForTheWeek – Focus on the Saviour

Heavenly Father, thank You for being the God who loves us & gave up His life for us. Help us to keep our hearts & minds focused on You.

Romans 7:19
For the good that I would, I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do.

It is not what you do, but what Christ has already done!

That which you search for is locked up within your soul. 

Ecclesiastes 3:11 

He has made everything beautiful in its time. He also has planted eternity in men’s hearts and minds [a divinely implanted sense of a purpose working through the ages which nothing under the sun but God alone can satisfy], yet so that men cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end. 

When you see a need, step up & be the answer to fill that need. 

James 2:14-17 

What is the use (profit), my brethren, for anyone to profess to have faith if he has no [good] works [to show for it]? Can [such] faith save [his soul]? If a brother or sister is poorly clad and lacks food for each day, and one of you says to him, Good-bye! Keep [yourself] warm and well fed, without giving him the necessities for the body, what good does that do? So also faith, if it does not have works (deeds and actions of obedience to back it up), by itself is destitute of power (inoperative, dead). 

Demonstrate God’s love & be a blessing by getting involved.

Where is your passion directed? #FoodForThought

Song of Solomon 8:6 

Set me like a seal upon your heart, like a seal upon your arm; for love is as strong as death, jealousy is as hard and cruel as Sheol (the place of the dead). Its flashes are flashes of fire, a most vehement flame [the very flame of the Lord]! 

Do you direct your passion toward God? Zeal pushes us to give our best effort, to care when we don’t feel like it, to try when we want to give up, to continue when we want to quit.

Have you bought stock in the expression ‘Your life is God’s gift to you, & what you do with it is your gift to God’?

Proverbs 3:5, 7 

Place your trust in the Eternal; rely on Him completely; never depend upon your own ideas and inventions. And don’t think you can decide on your own what is right and what is wrong. Respect the Eternal…

‘God doesn’t want something from us. He simply wants us. ~ CS Lewis’
