“For a day in your courts is better than a thousand elsewhere. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of wickedness. For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor. No good thing does he withhold from those who walk uprightly. O Lord of hosts, blessed is the one who trusts in you!”
- Earthly goals are meaningless if they do not have eternal value. What we set our eyes on makes all the difference in the world. Our thoughts control our attitude, establish our joy, and influence our witness.
- What will you give up to assure that you are walking with God?
- What is God’s presence in you worth to you?
- Will the power of the cross and the love of God enter your thoughts today?
2 Corinthians 4:16-18 “So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.”
Dear Lord, please help us to understand Your love, sovereignty, greatness, and grace; and may we always long to be in your presence. Amen
