Pursuing Holiness - Beloved Women - January 23, 2020
READ: “Since we have these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from every defilement of body and spirit, bringing holiness to completion in the fear of God.” (2 Corinthians 7:1 ESV)
TODAY’S ENCOURAGEMENT: When I think about the over 3,000 promises that God has given us in His Word; I am in awe of His goodness toward us. He has lavished His great and precious promises on us and directs our hearts to Him and away from the things that defile us. God calls us to holiness each day of our lives but we are never alone in our walk. God’s Spirit is at work in each of us, and gives us the strength and courage to be cleansed and purified from whatever is defiling our heart, mind, soul, and spirit.
This world is constantly bombarding us with things that distract us from holy living. May we pause throughout our day and look to our Father in Heaven to filter what we take in and take part of. Sometimes in the busyness of life we forget to look up; but when we do He is right there to lead, guide, and direct us back to a place of holiness.
PRAY: Dear Jesus, may I set my eyes upon You and pause throughout the day to look to You for guidance and direction. May I pursue holiness in my life. Thank You that I don’t have to do this alone. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
REFLECT: Where in your life do you need to pause and look to Jesus for guidance and direction?
