Thoughts on Today's Verse...

God commands us to turn away from our own self-seeking ways in repentance. He pleads with us to turn to him with a willingness to obey his will. If we refuse, we must know we are walking the road leading to death. God longs to do the work of rebirth and renewal in us, but he demands that we turn from our destructive ways and offer our hearts to him so that we can be made new by his Holy Spirit. Repentance is to turn off the road leading to destruction and onto the road that leads to the Father's house, the place of life, joy, and salvation!

My Prayer...

Please forgive me, mighty God, for trying to rule and govern my life. I confess I've made a mess of things when I haven't obeyed your Word and rebelled against your will. I want to turn my heart and life entirely over to you. I want to follow your will and live for your glory. Thank you for your forgiveness and strength as I seek to find life in you. In the name of the Savior Jesus, I pray. Amen.
