PERCEPTION // What I see/hear God saying/doing:
Lord, what I see from You is that to experience the abundant life and share it with others only comes through the power of the cross when one is willing to die to self. Daily one must choose the way of the cross and reject the wiles and ways of the enemy of our soul who wants take abundance from us.
PLAN // What I am going to do about it:
Jesus, I will die to my preoccupation and the busyness this season brings. I will intentionally seek out people who need an encouraging word, a listening ear, a ‘good shepherd’ who’ll lay aside his plans to share life and be a source blessing.
PRAYER // Seal the deal:
Lord Jesus, cross talk is never pleasant. Dying to self is seldom easy. Yet, the new and abundant life through the cross is incomparable. I choose You today…Your ways every day.
