What are your plans for today? If you’re like me and most other Americans, you’ve probably got a list of activities that might include things like, laundry, grocery shopping, washing the car and more. And while you’re at it you may try and slip in some relaxation time.
Let me ask a question. With all the things you’ve got on your plate today, is there any time set aside to read the bible and worship God? I’m here to tell you that this is absolutely the best way to start your day. Why? Because God will tell you what His plans are for you today.
If you were given the option of choosing which plan to follow, I hope your choice will be the smart one and follow God’s plan. His plans are the best and with Him guiding you through His Holy Spirit you will have success in getting things done according to His will for your life. And at the end of the day you will have a great feeling of accomplishment.
So, take some time right now to dig out your bible, read, and then praise and worship God. He’s waiting for you.
Friday is here which means the weekend is just around the corner. As you relax this weekend take time to thank God for all you have, where you live and the many blessings He’s bestowed upon you. God is a God of love, mercy, grace and understanding. Take Him at His word and receive Jesus as your savior. You’ll be glad you did.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. Acknowledge Him in all your ways and He will make your path straight.”—Proverbs 3:5-6
Friday is a day of the week so many look forward to because it represents the coming of the weekend and time for relaxation. Relaxation that does not involve worrying about anything. Just taking it easy is the way to go. Oh, of course the troubles and worries of the week are still there but now is not the time to think about them, or is it?
Prayer time, bible reading and worship throughout the week will give you the peace you need to handle whatever comes your way during the week. There is no need to wait until the weekend to blow off steam. Going to God in prayer and blowing off steam, and yes it’s OK to do that with God because He already knows what you’re dealing with, is permissible.
Asking for, waiting for and receiving God’s guidance on how to live your life and handle the daily pitfalls is as close as a prayer. God understands what you’re going through and wants to help if you’ll let Him.
Before you start your weekend, pray and ask God what’s the best way to live your life and handle the challenges you face. He will be happy to answer you and will invite you to worship Him daily from then on.
Give God a chance. He won’t let you down.
