PRAYER: Dear LORD, YOU are worthy of my entirety and wholehearted worship and services. Help me know YOU more with strong focus, all on YOU, in CHRIST JESUS, Amen!
WHY PRAY THIS?: It is true that “we have an earthly existence that demands our time, attention, and energy and as a result of that, often fail to focus on the ONE who is worthy of our wholehearted devotion”. Imagine the Great Commandment—to love the LORD with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength. Yet none of us feel adequate for such a task. Our hearts are fickle, our souls are often self-absorbed, our minds are easily distracted, and our strength falls short.
Solutions as inspired are:
1. Learn to know and appreciate the other person (GOD or man). Therefore, our starting place for loving GOD is HIS personhood—knowing who HE is.
2. Understand individual (nature and actions, differences and indifferences). The Old Testament provides magnificent views of HIS nature, power, and love, but the most tangible, understandable picture we have of GOD is HIS SON. When we examine CHRIST’ character, words, and actions in the Gospel accounts, we perceive and understand the heavenly FATHER more clearly.
NOTE: We have to fulfill the sacred Commandment because of what GOD has done. One of the best discovery was that “HE is not only our CREATOR but also our SAVIOUR” (Through JESUS CHRIST, the FATHER has rescued all believers from eternal destruction). So, You and I have to carve time out of our busy schedule to read GOD’s Word and talk to HIM in prayer in order to discover more about HIM and HIS plan for our existence. We can fulfil HIS Holy Commandments, yes, We’ve been transferred from the domain of darkness into the kingdom of HIS SON and made heirs with CHRIST. Peace be unto You!
