PRAYER: Pray for deliverance. Deliverance from all that is distracting you from your daily walk with God.
DEVOTION: “And in the depths of the heart there comes forth to us this morning this truth; “Set your house in order.” See to it that you do not allow anything that could be there that He could see that He could be displeased with. Your house is your body; your body is the temple of the Spirit. See to it that you obey this message. (pg 98)
There’s so much to say here but really the message is simple. I actually just recorded a video devotion on this that will be airing on Saturday.
Here’s the question. What in your life needs to be gotten rid of? What do you need to stop doing in order to be drawn closer to Jesus? To make your relationship with Him on a daily basis more effective?
The answer is different for each of us. Maybe it’s a TV show that you’ve been watching that isn’t quite what you should be watching. Maybe it’s a relationship with someone who is constantly causing you to stumble. Maybe it’s the internet. Maybe it’s your search patterns. There are so many things that continue to pull us way from God.
Take an audit of your habits. Stifle the ones that get in the way of your relationship with God and expand on the ones that take you closer. Let Him in to every decision. Every conversation that you have with yourself about what to keep and what to get rid of.
Be honest with yourself. Make the tough decisions.
