Give the following instructions to the people of Israel. I AM the Lord your God. So do not act like the people in Egypt, where you used to live, or like the people of Canaan, where I am taking you. You must not imitate their way of life.
Good Morning Father,
Even though we’re a ways off from spring, I want to praise You for the promise of it. The days are getting a bit warmer and the earth is starting to wake up. Thank You for being here with me this morning as we greet the day together.
You know me, Father. You know me inside and out. You have given me this scripture today to remind me to live for You. I often think today’s lifestyle is so hard to glorify You, yet, I guess it’s not all that much different from how Your people lived so many years ago. As they did, I am still having challenges to not live like this world does.
I’m bombarded with so much of the world’s thoughts, there are times I don’t know what to do. Then You come to me and remind me that Your Word is my lamp and shows me the direction I should take.
Help me today, Father, to live for You, to glorify You and not make compromises in my values. I want to be set apart for Your work, but I also don’t want to offend those I’m trying to show Your love to.
I get so confused, Father. How do I show them Your love without being haughty and arrogant? You just reminded me. I need to live like Jesus does. I need His power and compassion and strength. I realize that I have all I need to get the job done. All I have to do is ask.
Thank You for being my LORD!
