Today's Verse: Jeremiah 7:3

Saturday, July 3, 2004

This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: Reform your ways and your actions, and I will let you live in this place.
— Jeremiah 7:3

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

We often take for granted what we have, where we live, the friends who bless our lives, and the family that gives us a place to belong and grow. All of these are gifts to us from God. We don't deserve them. We don't earn them. But, we can surely destroy them. God wants us to live obediently, not just to please him, but also to protect ourselves and those we love. So let's reform our actions and live for him and not for ourselves.

My Prayer...

Almighty and Holy Father, please forgive me of my sins. Please bless me and empower me as I seek to turn my life around to live passionately for you and your glory. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
