Restoring a Life of Purity – One Day at a Time

Read Your Word This Morning?

I want to speak to the children of God this morning. Okay, so we are a child of the King of kings and Lord of lords. We carry His name everywhere we go. We share about what He has done in our lives with people who we know need to hear about how good He really is. So can I ask you something? How’s your daily devotion with our heavenly Father going for you these days? It’s not a question to startle anyone or to question your relationship with Father God, but a real question about are we spending the quality time with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ that He wants and desires from us? I mean, many of us children of God spend a few minutes a day reading a quick devotional that contains a few verses and a few comments of strong biblical preparedness. And that’s about the extent of our time for a lot of us. Yes, that time does count, but shouldn’t we desire more time with our Savior? If He has done all these marvelous things in our lives; if He has saved us from the clutches of sin and enslavement; and if He has delivered us from the destructive behaviors that would have cause collateral damage to every relationship we’ve ever had, then wouldn’t we want and desire to spend much more time with this Savior than what we’ve been spending today? Yeah, we all say yes to that question, but why aren’t we doing it? Does our heavy schedules not permit us to make time to spend with God? Are we too tired with all that we go through on a daily basis then give God the few minutes we have left before we turn in for the night? God’s Word tells us, or let me put it to us as His Word says it: God’s Word instructs us to STUDY His Word! And we all know what study means-to make time and get into it, for understanding! That’s what God’s Word is saying to us today! He may have something specific to say specifically to us. He wants to speak to us daily and as often as we will listen to Him. He wants to tell us how much He loves us. He wants to tell us He will protect us in those moments of discomfort and pain. He wants to tell us that He will never leave us or forsake us. He also wants to tell us that He died for the sin we are about to commit so don’t do it! These are just a few of the conversations that our Heavenly Father wants to have with us but we need to make time to hear Him, to listen to His voice. For just one day, drown out all the noise of your world and tell yourself . . . “Today, I will listen and hear the voice of my Savior Jesus Christ, and hear what He wants for me. I will be attentive to the unction of the Holy Spirit, and tune my ears that I may hear His voice clearly and receive what it is that He wants to say to me!” Then watch with spiritual awareness as He whispers in your ears His desires, His thoughts, and His instructions for you that day, and bless your day abundantly. Then you can tell the world what God is saying to you this day!
