There are so many things that can distract us from spending time with God: our jobs, our spouses, our family, our friends, our hobbies - the list can go on!!
We have to be careful not to let these things become more important or more of a priority than our relationship with God! Today we want to encourage you to make it your goal to have a deep, intimate relationship with God. Let God into every area of your life. If you constantly look to other people for answers and validation, we encourage you to ask the Lord to help you overcome this and instead look to Him.
In 1 Thessalonians 2:4 it speaks about our purpose being to please God, not people. God alone examines the motives of our hearts. As we live to please God, He promises to bless our lives and make us prosper.When you decide to serve God with your whole heart and make Him first in your life, your soul will prosper and your joy and peace will increase. Remember to lean on Him more than anything else, and tell Him, “God, I want to do this, but I can’t do it without You.” He doesn’t expect you to live for Him in your own strength or ability, and He understands when you make mistakes.
So if you mess up, don’t be discouraged and let it hold you back; confess it and keep going. God will give you grace to do what you need to do. One day at a time, you and God together can do anything!
But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you - Matthew 6:33
Have a Blessed Day & Make A Difference!!
