Scriptures: Psalm 24:4-5 4He who has clean hands and a pure heart, Who has not lifted up his soul to an idol, Nor sworn deceitfully. 5He shall receive blessing from the LORD, And righteousness from the God of his salvation. (NKJV)
Nugget: Sometimes we need to do a self-check regarding our thoughts, actions, & character. We’re seeking so much from God, but are we in the right place? What do I mean by the right place? Are we reading the Word, taking quiet time to spend with God, keeping a pure heart & mind (in our actions & words as well)? What are we doing to show ourselves approved for the blessings we seek from Him?
I admit, sometimes, it’s as if I’m always asking God for something; there’s nothing wrong with asking, but am I also doing what it takes to grow in Him---sometimes what we’re seeking is tied to our faith & obedience in Him.
Thanking God for another day & chance to get it right! Take time today to thank God, spend time with Him, get into His Word, & show yourself approved!
Quote: “Does it make sense to pray for guidance about the future if we are not obeying in the thing that lies before us today? How many momentous events in Scripture depended on one person's seemingly small act of obedience! Rest assured: Do what God tells you to do now, and, depend upon it, you will be shown what to do next.” -Elisabeth Elliot
