“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Matthew 19:30

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Jesus said,

“Many who are first will be last,

and many who are last will be first.”

.

– Matthew 19:30 (NIV)

.

.

REFLECTION…

.

This is a word of caution

for those of us who may feel ahead of others.

.

Many who are the greatest now

will be least important then,

and those who seem least important now

will be the greatest then.

.

If we are truly gifted in any way,

– whether it is physically, intellectually, materially or spiritually –

we should always thank God

and use the gifts that He gives us to give Him glory

…and not to glorify ourselves.

.

It is good to thank God always, and humbly,

for whoever we are

and for whatever we may or may not have.

.

It is good for us to make our own

the words that Job so wisely and humbly expressed,

“Naked I came from my mother’s womb,

and naked I will depart.

The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away;

may the name of the Lord be praised.” (Job 1:21)

QUOTE…

.

Almighty Father,

all I have is from You

– help me use it to glorify Your Holy Name!

….….

Father,

if what I possess is now possessing me

and is drawing me away from You,

please remove it from me now!

….….

My God, all I need is You

– may Your Holy Name be praised!

….….

Amen

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Come into my heart, O Lord, and take over.
