Why do you call Me ‘Lord, Lord,’ but not do what I say? Luke 6:46
How often we say “Lord, Lord?” Christian vocabulary like praise the Lord, if the Lord wills etc. becomes part of our conversation. But do we really mean what we say? Is Jesus truly the Lord of our lives? Do we do what He tells us to do? Do we do things for Him but fail to obey His word?
We may have been judging the people around us-how they have been living their Christian lives. But today, let’s examine ourselves.
It’s me, it’s me O Lord, standing in the need of prayer.
Verse of the Day : 18 January 2018
Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill His good purpose. Philippians 2:12-13
God uses His heavenly resources to equip us to do His will. What hope and joy this brings! God Himself undertakes the task of shaping us into His servants provided we are willing to obey His instructions. The LORD will perfect that which concerns me.“ (Psalm 138:8)
Lord, Help me to obey You, walk me into every good work that is in Your will. I do not have what it takes to fulfill Your will for me. I often put my hope in vain places, please do in me only what You can do, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
Verse of the Day : 16 January 2018
No longer do I call you servants…I have called you friends. John 15:15
What a friend we have in Jesus
All our sins and griefs to bear
And what a privilege to carry
Everything to God in prayer…
Everything, absolutely everything-our worries, our pain, our weaknesses, our failures, our sorrows, our deepest secrets, we don’t need to carry them for a moment. He is our friend. He’d do anything for us. He laid down His life for us. Why don’t we carry our burdens to Him, today? See what peace He would offer in exchange for our turmoil.
Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up with it and choked the plants. Luke 8:7
You can’t hear God when your mind is full of thoughts, worries, fears, and plans, or if you always have the TV on or you are constantly on your phone.
All of these distractions are what Jesus was referring to in Luke 8 as weeds. He says, those weeds grew with the seed and strangled it. If you are always on the go you can’t hear God. Weeds are a sign of neglect. When you neglect your time with God, the weeds start to grow in your life. 1 Kings 19:12 says, when God spoke to Elijah, it wasn’t in a wind or earthquake or fire; it was in a gentle whisper. If you want to hear God’s, you have to be still in His presence.

“The LORD is good and does what is right; He shows the proper path to those who go astray. He leads the humble in doing right, teaching them His way. The LORD leads with unfailing love and faithfulness all who keep His covenant and obey His demands” Psalm 25:8-10
When our hearts are humble and truly seeking God’s will, we can be confident of this:
1. God will always show us what is right for us.
2. When we get sidetracked, God will direct us back to the right path.
3. We are not alone. God leads and teaches us along the way.
4. God leads those who obey Him with unfailing love and faithfulness.
PRAYER: “Show me the right path, O LORD; point out the road for me to follow. All day long I put my hope in you” (Psalm 25:4-5).
