    Nobody should seek his own good, but the good of others.
    —1 Corinthians 10:24
    Thoughts on Today's Verse...
    Isn't it amazing how the more we try to fix things for ourselves, the more we focus on "looking out for number 1," and the more we also find ourselves isolated from meaningful relationships that make life worth living. "If you want to have a friend, then be a friend," the saying goes. You know what? It's right! It's easy to seek what is only for our own good. That's what most folks do as a matter of course. But what makes Christians redemptive, what makes them like God, is their willingness to think of others before themselves!

    My Prayer...
    Father, forgive me, because I know that I am often selfish and seldom think through the implications of my decisions based on the needs of others. I want to have the mind of Christ and be more selfless and sacrificial with everyone who needs your grace and the tenderness that you have placed within me to share with them. Please bless me as I seek to be like your Son in this area of my life. In Jesus' name. Amen.

    Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord.
    —Acts 3:19
    Thoughts on Today's Verse...
    I'm not sure what we fear about repentance (turning our hearts and lives to God)? God will not only receive us; he will also redeem us and remake us. But that repentance is often so hard for us to do. We get stuck in old patterns of destructive and addictive behavior. We believe Satan's deceptive lies. We use self-deprecating thoughts to defeat the Spirit's work in ourselves. So why not come clean and confess our sins and truly turn our lives over to God? If we will, we will find something truly refreshing!

    My Prayer...
    Holy and righteous Father, I am not sure why I so doggedly hold on to some of my "pet" sins. Part of me wants to break free of these stumbling blocks, but part of me doesn't. I need your help in turning myself fully over to you. Please send your healing, cleansing, and refreshing power through the Holy Spirit to help me as I commit in my heart to fully and completely turn my life over to you. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
    Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord.

    The humility to confess your sins to God is what God wants from us. He says humble yourself in the sight of the Lord and I will lift you up!

    Let us continue to look to God for our strength and our confidence. We are not in this alone, but have Him to look to in our times of distress. We can have confidence in Him to see us through even the times where we see no way through. May God be praised.

    We must remember that we need not fear as God is for us and if God is for us, then who can be against us?

    Read this passage and let it soak in. It is so beautiful. He is so beautiful. May he be glorified and magnified by those who are called by His holy name. God forgive us for our wayward and frail hearts that so easily go astray. Help us to stay on the narrow path. Strengthen us by the power of your amazing Holy Spirit to walk in your fullness!

    Be careful not to do your "acts of righteousness" before men, to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven.
    —Matthew 6:1
    Thoughts on Today's Verse...
    Why do we do the things we do? What is the motivation for our behavior? It's so easy to fall into the trap of doing religious things so we will look good to others. This is true even when culture reacts negatively to our faith. Those around us who know about our faith and the Christians around us become the target of our behavior. While we do want to have the right kind of influence on everyone around us, we must never make our decisions about spiritual service on the basis of being seen by others to be honored because of it. Our goal must be to honor God and bless others!

    My Prayer...
    Almighty God, please purify my heart of any false motivation and help me serve others based on their need and my desire to honor you in helping them. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

    I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day...
    —2 Timothy 4:7-8
    Thoughts on Today's Verse...
    I am so thankful for Paul's confidence as he faces his death. He is all but abandoned and is worried about the future of the Church, but he knows two things: he has served the Lord faithfully and the Lord will receive him when he dies! Shouldn't those two things be our most important goals in life? So if they are our goals, how do we live each day to fulfill them?

    My Prayer...
    Faithful and loving God, you have so richly blessed me with salvation by your grace. Please strengthen me out of the riches of that grace. I am sometimes weak and falter in my faithfulness. I know your grace is lavish, but I don't want to presume on it or abuse it. Please give me strength and courage to live faithfully and passionately for you until the day I see you face to face and share with you in your glory and victory. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

    Six days do your work, but on the seventh day do not work, so that your ox and your donkey may rest and the slave born in your household, and the alien as well, may be refreshed.
    —Exodus 23:12
    Thoughts on Today's Verse...
    Refreshed! Boy that's often hard in any time, but it's especially hard in August, isn't it? It's either the dead of summer or the dead of winter depending on which side of the equator you find yourself. Either way, we need to hear God's desire for all of us to be refreshed and to allow those around us to be refreshed in his presence, his grace, and his rest.

    My Prayer...
    Forgive me, God, for being so busy being busy that I don't intentionally take time to be refreshed in your rest. Teach me gently, Father, that I need this weekly rest in your presence and with my family to be all that you want me to be, and all that I can be. Restore my soul, O God, and fill me with your restful joy. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

    Please notice that it is the weekly Sabbath that takes place on "the" Sabbath day, rather than any day we choose to "rest"

    Many want to claim that one day is just as good as any other to rest, but the Lord commanded that the day that was His Sabbath was the seventh day, or the day we now call Saturday.
