Your daily goal:
Philippians 3:14 “I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.”
(Monday-Friday, from my morning quiet time, I will write a short thought for that day which I pray God will use to motivate you to ‘GO’ for that day. Your objective is simple…to GO…to GO OUT and share the love of Christ with someone in that day….to GO and bear fruit …to be light to the world.)
Today’s Daily Light:
Let’s spend some time this week meditating and praying in the context of the ‘Lord’s Prayer
Jesus, who is God-the-Son/the Son of God, told us to pray this way for specific intention/purpose/reason…
Let us look at the prayer in pieces…and we will keep it simple…meaning…it is rather clear as to the intention/purpose/reason for what/why we are to pray this way:
Matthew 6:9 Jesus said “This, then, is how you should pray: “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name” …
Hallowed = honor as Holy….to make Holy..to consecrate.
Our prayer today and everyday should be… Father…we honor you as the only God…the Holy God of Creation. You are Lord and King and ruler of the universe and all of life…of all things…and you are in heaven. By saying this I am declaring with my lips that you are my God and that I see and know that you are Holy and I say it to proclaim it before all who listen and hear…I declare that you are Holy to pay tribute and to honor the ‘all’ of how wonderful, glorious, and Holy YOU are!
There is power and healing for our hearts, minds, and souls as we fix our minds and hearts and souls on seeing our Holy God in this way…by affirming in our hearts, minds, and souls who He is in all of life, who He is ‘for’ us and ‘to’ us. He is our Holy God. We must hold to this reality of our Holy God…keep it always in the front of our minds. The reality of who He is will drive our actions and ambitions. He is in heaven and He rules and reigns out of His Holiness. He is ours and we are His. We declare that there are no other Gods…there is none like our Holy and beautiful and wonderful God!!
