We have the opportunity to allow Jesus to carry out His work through our lives, so that great things are done through us. Our mandate is to lift up Jesus while denying ourselves.
Prayer is not difficult to understand, but it can be difficult to do. Don’t allow yourself to become satisfied with shallow, self-centered praying. Stay with God in prayer until He leads you to pray at the level He wants.
We may assume that our expressions of devotion to God are small and insignificant, but in God’s eyes they may hold much meaning. God can take your memorials of faithfulness & begin a spiritual legacy, making it a blessing to others for generations to come.
God looks for those willing to have their lives radically adjusted away from their self-centered activities and placed into the center of God's activity around the world. What is God presently inviting you to do?
