Tuesday's Dose - 10th March 2015

Set your Heart and Mind on God

Today's Scripture

“Give me understanding, and I will keep your law and obey it with all my heart” - (Psalm 119:34).

Thoughts for Today

The longer we walk down the road with God, the more self-aware we must become. To go the distance, we cannot wander aimlessly toward God, oblivious to our surroundings. It takes focus and determination, as well as a heart bent on serving Him and putting Him above everything else in our lives.

As we pause to analyze our hearts, we must be on the lookout for anything that would open the door to sin in our lives. As David faced trial after trial, he tried to stay focused on the Lord. Yet in times when he lost his focus, he found disaster waiting around the next bend.

By keeping your mind and heart set on God, you can be on the lookout for the very things that can trip you up spiritually, emotionally, and mentally. If you are feeling bored, lonely, tired, or rejected, beware. These feelings can betray you and lead you to sin. If you slip into laziness and refuse to hear God's Truth, you may also be strolling down a dangerous path.

When we choose to be led by our flesh, which is what happens when we allow our feelings to tempt us into acting contrary to God's Word, we are destined to sin. God loves us dearly and He desires the best for our lives.

To serve and honor Him at every turn in life, we must follow the voice of the Holy Spirit and not our flesh. In our desire to live holy and righteous lives, we must determine to rely upon Him for guidance and direction. When we do, we will avoid potential pitfalls and heartache.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, allow Your Holy Spirit to be the voice of direction for my life today. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Tuesday and God Bless you.
