As we continue to navigate the challenges of 2020, I keep going back to what we think. There are so many opinions and, of course, they are conflicting. God has been teaching me to go to Him in prayer to make sure my thoughts are on the right course. My thoughts need to be captive to Christ and His purposes.
We live during troubled times. The Bible promises that we will have trials (James 1). The Bible also reminds us that knowledge puffs up (1 Corinthians 8:1). We need to keep going back to God’s Word to give us direction. We need to keep praying to humble ourselves before God in order to obey Christ. That is the purpose for those of us who follow Christ.
Dear Heavenly Father, we need to humble ourselves before You daily so we can obey Christ. Thank you for providing Your Word to give us guidance. Please help me to follow what You have commanded and encourage others to do the same.
I pray this in Jesus’ name.
God is so good.
