As you begin this week we ask that you meditate on the following scriptures and how they apply to your life and your growing relationship with the Lord.
Father, we ask that you help us understand your word through the guidance of the Holy Spirit, and open our hearts and minds so that we may incorporate your word and will into our lives for your glory.
“We worship God through his Spirit, and our pride is in Christ Jesus. We do not put trust in ourselves or anything we can do” (Philippians 3:3)
“But the person who trsusts in the Lord will be blessed. The Lord will show him that he can be trusted. He will be strong, like a tree planted near water that sends its routs by a stratem. It is not afraid when the days are hot; its leaves are awlays green. It does not worry in a year when no rain comes; it always produces fruit. (Jeremiah 17:7-8)
“When I am afraid I will trust you. I praise God for his word. I trust God, so I am not afraid. What can human beings do to me.” (Psalm 16:3-4)
