I have a tendency to write down quotes and verses that mean a lot to me. And once in awhile I will share them with you all. So I thought today I would do that.
A life that glorifies God is a life that reveals God
I like this quote because it’s so true! We are called to glorify God in all that we say and do. And the more we do that, the more we reveal God!
Prayer is about aligning our heart’s preferences with God’s will.
It’s so easy to just pray for me, me, me. To pray for what we want in life. Don’t get me wrong, it’s okay to pray for ourselves. But we must remember that God’s plan for our lives may not necessarily be what we plan for our lives. We must remember to align what we want with what God wants.
Turn my eyes away from worthless things; preserve my life according to your word.
It’s easy to put all of our attention on the things that really don’t matter. In the moment, they seem to matter. They seem to be the most important things but they’re not. We must remember to turn our attention on God and focus on what’s truly important.
Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak.
Temptation is an easy thing to fall into. BUT God is faithful and will help us!
1 Corinthians 10:13 says, “No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.”
We must fight it and put all of our focus into following the Lord. But when we do fall into temptation, when we do give in to it, God will provide a way out.
