Started a 2-days devotional to F-O-C-U-S on Jesus.
Day 1 has been fantastic! A great start as I started my work day by reading, praying then meditating every hour on His words and my prayer to Him.
Matthew 6:30-33 Message
What I’m trying to do here is to get you to relax, to not be so preoccupied with getting, so you can respond to God’s giving.
Recently I’ve been gaining interest in reading the Message version of the bible while cross-reading the NIV version. I find that the modern way of writing sometimes makes it much easier for the message to sink in. Well, I guess that’s why it’s called the message.
Matthew 6:27 NIV
Can anyone of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?
So with this, here’s my prayer:
I have a tendency to first go to myself before You in things I do. Only when I think I can’t do it, then do I go to you to ask for help.
Father, help me to have the ability to go to YOU first as you have commanded in Matthew 6:25-33.
Help me to not be so preoccupied with getting, so that I can respond to Your giving.
Help me to focus on YOU. Help steep my life in Your-reality, Your-initiative and Your-provision.
In Your name I pray, Amen.
