Morning by Morning, June 26 - Live Like It's True
Good morning, Lord Jesus. Go before me, go with me, go within me throughout every moment of my day. ...
"And Jesus came and said to them, 'All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age' " (Matthew 28:18-20).
What if I were to live my life as if these words of Yours were true? What if I really believed that You are with me always? What if I didn't doubt that the One who has all authority in heaven and on earth is at my side and even within my heart? ...
These words are either true or they're not. You intend me to live my life like this everyday or not at all. And all of this is either pretty words of poetic expression to inspire my imagination in a fairytale fantasy or its intended to be at the center of my understanding of the normal Christian life.
Give me the grace to believe it's true; give me grace to live like it's true -- that You are who You say You are, that You do what You say You'll do, that the One who has all authority in heaven and on earth is with me always. ...
Yes, Lord Jesus. I believe You are the One who is forever "Faithful and True" (Revelation 19:10). I believe Your words are "spirit and life" (John 6:63). So empower me by Your Spirit within me to live my life this day and every day into the truth of Your faithful words (Romans 8:11). In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
Be encouraged today! In the Love of Jesus, Tommy Hays
May the Holy Spirit empower you to believe and to live out the faithful words of Jesus Christ that He is with you always in every moment of every day of your life, in Jesus' name. Please pray the same for me. God bless you, my friend!
