On our list of priorities, plans and life’s goals, how high have we placed “bringing honor and glory to God?” Is that even on our list? Is it something we ever think about? At critical times throughout history there have been moments when God searched for just one person who would stand up for Him. Sometimes He found that person. Sometimes He did not. Are you committed to standing alone for God, if necessary, and using your life to bring Him glory?
Surrendering Your Heart to God’s Plow
Farmers know that if they don’t prepare the soil to receive the seed, no crops will grow, because unprepared soil always yields undesirable results. Jesus said the same is true with our hearts. It is easy to allow the soil of our heart to become hard or filled with other things that will keep the seed of God’s Word from taking root in us. As you go about your life each day, what are you doing to intentionally prepare your heart to hear from God? He longs to speak to you… are you listening?
