Yesterday (day 15) I shared the truth that the world is always watching and weighing our words and our actions. Just as important as it is to acknowledge that truth, it’s also imperative that we grasp the fact that the Lord is always watching and weighing our words and our actions. He sees right through our smoke screens of self-righteousness and self-promotion.

The beauty of being in Christ is that, in Him, we are exalted  to a level that we can never attain on our own. In ourselves there is truly no good thing, only sin that works like a cancer to devour and  separate us from our only hope, Jesus Christ. Self-exaltation will never bring to us what we really desire, a home of real and lasting security and a hope of real joy and contentment.

 

Prayer Emphasis: Pray for a true heart of humility before Christ, allowing Him to be your source of significance. Commit yourself to be a disciple that diligently seeks after Him, knowing that He rewards those who do.

 

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not evil, to give you a future and a hope.  

Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me with all your heart.

You will seek Me and find Me, when you seek Me with all your heart.

Jeremiah 29:11-13
