Just For Today
Every day I look so forward to it and it always includes THE MISSION for the day which is a great biblical challenge.
Yesterday's devo was entitled The Apostasia and was about "the great falling away" before the end of the age.
Ephesians 6:13, Philippians 2:15, 2 Thessalonians 2:3 and 2 Timothy 3:1-4 address this prophecy.
The devotional includes this paragraph--"In the age of departure from the Word, you must hold all the stronger.. You must commit to hold all the more strongly to the Word, the faith, and the stand. And the more you hold the Word, the more you will find your stasis, the person you were created to be....And you will stand."
The Mission: Take a command from the New Testament and fully carry it out today. Commit to live your life all the more by the Word of God.
So, just for today, I will hold on tight to God's Word and commit to live my life all the more by it. I chose a specific command from the New Testament to live by for the day. Was I totally successful? No, but every time I "blew it," I was immediately convicted and asked God to forgive me.
I think this is a great way to grow in His Word and that is what I truly desire.
I hope this is an encouraging word for you and that you truly grow to discover the person you were created to be. God knows YOU and has a wonderful plan for YOUR life--Live it to the fullest. God bless you all.
