Yesterday we prayed about trusting God more in every area of our lives, today we will focus on obedience as we trust Him. It may be helpful to reflect on areas of your life that God may be directing you toward greater obedience toward Him. Is there a behavior you are holding on to which you should let go? Is there an attitude that God is challenging you to change? Take some time to pause and allow God to search and challenge you today.
Ephesians 4:20-24: But that’s no life for you. You learned Christ! My assumption is that you have paid careful attention to him, been well instructed in the truth
precisely as we have it in Jesus. Since, then, we do not have the excuse of ignorance, everything—and I do mean everything— connected with that old way of life has to go. It’s rotten through and through. Get rid of it! And then take on an entirely new way of life—a God-fashioned life, a life renewed from the inside and working itself into your conduct as God accurately reproduces His character in you.
Father God, I ask You to search my heart. If You find anything in me that I need to let go of or change, please show me and help me remove it from my life. Lead me to live a life that draws people to You. Help me live my life on earth in a way that impacts eternity. My desire is to be fully obedient to You. As I open my heart to You and invite You to search every area, help me be quick to respond in obedience. Cleanse me from my old ways of living. Continue to renew me from the inside out. I want Your character to be produced in me.
If there is a specific hurt, habit or hang-up that is making you feel stuck in life we encourage you to take a step and visit Celebrate Recovery on Tuesdays at The Ridge’s Greenfield Campus. More details here: http://theridgecc.com/cr/
