Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” whenever you turn to the right hand or whenever you ” Isaiah 30:27
When I come to a New Year filled with determination or purpose of things I want to accomplish in 2016, I am afraid of failing or quitting. How about you? A barrier is perfectionism. Usually what happens to me is that I think devotion need done at a certain time in the morning. If I do not do it at that time, I start believing Satan’s lies such as quiet time in the morning I let God down. Here is the truth I realized this year, Jesus died on the cross for my sins before electricity made quiet time possible at 0430 in the morning. God loves us unconditionally. There is an application available from Proverbs 31 Ministry called First Five. It is a smart telephone application that is a devotional to read and you can set the alarm when you first get up but if you are not a morning person, there is nothing preventing you from setting the alarm for another time in the day. Beloved, this is about relationship, Satan would have you do nothing believing the lie if you do not read the devotional the first thing in the morning the devotional does no good, but the truth of the matter we can pray or read God word and devotional’s anytime of the day. My prayer for all of us is to grow closer to the Lord.
