Quiet Time with Jesus – Choose love

Saturday, 2 April 2016

Charles Stanley: God expects us to change whatever it takes to be our best at all that we do … It is important to understand that the term best is related to your own potential, not a term of comparison with others. Your best has nothing to do with another person’s best. Furthermore, your best today is not likely to be your best tomorrow. We all can improve certain aspects of our lives, and continue to improve them every day for the rest of our lives. Unquote.

Mother Teresa: Be faithful in little things, for in them our strength lies.

For a long period of time, I was blaming myself for having done certain things and for not having done certain things. Self-blaming is not healthy. Yes, we must measure ourselves from time to time – doing self-checks, self-audits and self-examinations, but if we go beyond what God wants us to do, we will end up in self-condemnation. The Bible says that there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ. Thank God for His Word and blessed assurance.

My prayer

Dear Father God, You see every action. You hear every word. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before Your eyes.

Land that drinks in the rain often falling on it and that produces a crop useful to those for whom it is farmed receives the blessing of God. Let us produce crops of love that will nourish the souls that hunger for it. Amen.

Land that produces thorns and thistles is worthless and is in danger of being cursed. In the end it will be burned. Let us not produce thorns and thistles that will do harm to souls that are helpless and hopeless. Let us choose love in everything we do and say. Amen.

Your Word says,

God is not unjust; He will not forget your work and the love you have shown Him as you have helped His people and continue to help them.
— Hebrews 6:10

May the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that Great Shepherd of the sheep, equip us with everything good for doing His will, and may He work in us what is pleasing to Him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.

In all circumstances, may our words and works glorify God. Amen.
