“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Philippians 3:8-9a

.

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Yes, everything else is worthless

when compared with the infinite value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord.

.

For His sake I have discarded everything else, counting it all as garbage,

so that I could gain Christ and become one with Him.

.

– Philippians 3:8-9a (NLT)

REFLECTION…

.

When you truly find Jesus,

everything else pales in comparison.

.

Once you welcome Jesus into your heart and let Him take over,

all else in which you may have previously gloried suddenly appears worthless.

.

Once you experience the riches of Christ the Lord,

nothing, nothing, compares to Him.

.

It is when you truly have found Jesus,

that you can declare, with sincerity and conviction,

that for His sake you are prepared to discard all else.

.

.

.

PRAYER…

.

Jesus,

You are the deepest desire of my heart.

.

The power and possessions I once persistently pursued are worthless.

All accolades and accomplishments are insignificant.

The pleasures and treasures of the world

can’t come close to knowing You, Jesus.

.

Lord, please show me all the clutter in my life that needs to be discarded

to make room…for more of You.

.

You are my Treasure, Lord.

There is no greater thing than knowing You, Jesus;

than having You in my heart.

You mean the world to me.

.

I love You, Lord.

.
