To sit with His Word, and knowing Him, opening up our eyes to His beauty and grandness.
To keeping our hearts tender and sensitive to the whispers of God throughout the day.
To place His interests above our own — whilst we may have our own desires and dreams and pursuits, that He would always remain above all. Not relying on our ownselves, effort, or hard work — but realizing He is ultimately the One who holds our every breathe, every day of our lives, guiding us in the right paths for our good and for His glory.
To remember Him as the God of Abraham, the God of Jacob, the God of Moses, the God of David, the Alpha and Omega, Beginning and End, Creator of each and everyone and everything else.
To ultimately surrender and see where God takes us.
To look, not of this world, but importantly of the things above.
For His Grace through Jesus Christ makes us perfect. Not through our own efforts nor strength nor wisdom and intelligence nor kindness but through believing in Jesus Christ and His death on the cross for our sins and ultimately His resurrection that through this, we believers are saved, our sins white as snow. Through this understanding should we extend that kindness and mercy and forgiveness that God has for us to others as well.
It does not make our problems of everyday life go away, as we are in this fallen, sinful world, but through Him and knowing who He is, we could always go to Him for strength, encouragement as our Father and Counselor, and take back the confidence, joy and peace we would need in every struggle and setback.
To look for His daily provisions from the smallest to the grandest of things. Nothing compares to His brilliance, magnificence and perfection. The One who holds our future and our lives eternal.
Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise;
His greatness no one can fathom.
One generation commends Your works to another;
they tell of Your mighty acts.
They speak of the glorious splendor of Your majesty—
and I will meditate on Your wonderful works. Psalm 145:3-5 NIV
