“The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives.” Psalms 37:23
Frank Sinatra sang “I did it my way”. One day I would like to sing “I did it God’s way”. In fact, lets sing that right now, before we start our day. We don’t want to postpone our walk with God one more day. Days come and go! Opportunities abound, but sometimes days to walk with God only arrive once. There are more than enough wasted, unused days in our life. We need to stop wasting time in such a senseless way.
As Paul said in his letter to the Ephesians, “I want to redeem my time. I will start by living and experiencing today in the right way. I cant afford to waste today. I want to welcome Jesus into my life today, as a special honoured guest. Then I will use my time effectively”
We know that Jesus never waits until tomorrow or the next day to help, He sets His watch to the needs of the broken. His diary is overflowing with appointments with people who have sinned. That is where we need to be, with those people radically flat-out, at top gear, at today’s speed.
Amazing Lord, Heavenly Father, as we bow our knee this morning at Your throne of Grace, Father we want to thank you for our life. Sometimes and more often than not, we don’t live it in abundance. We take so much for granted – our time, our lives, our family, our blessings and even You! Help us to always put You first – every day, every decision, every step into the future. Holy Spirit, fill us with a deep-set, fire burning faith for You. Today, we want to live Your way – equip us, help us, speak to us. Breathe a fresh breath of new life into us as we now surrender all to you. Father God, we cannot thank you enough for life itself. We love you! Amen x
