Time with God - Aug. 11, 2011


Proverbs 3:5-6

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.

Focusing on God helps you to reach up!

Your life today can be so much more than you can make of it.

“In all your ways acknowledge God.” As you wake up, acknowledge God—“Good morning Lord.” As you take your shower, acknowledge God—“Lord, I am looking for your involvement in every aspect of my day today.” As you eat breakfast with your family, acknowledge God—“Lord, we thank you for providing all of our needs.” As you have your daily quiet time, acknowledge God—“God, I don’t want to just read words on the page; I want to hear from you. Please speak to me from your Word.”

As you go about the business of your day, acknowledge God—“Lord, I know that every person I encounter today is someone you want to minister to through me. Please show me how I can minister to this person spiritually right now in a way that will move them closer to you.”

As you experience problems or hardship or deep personal struggles, acknowledge God—“Lord, I know that you are in control of all things, and so I know that you have allowed this difficulty into my life for a reason. I can’t see the reason but I will respond to this by trusting you and looking for ways to glorify you to others in the midst of this.”
