Romans 14:19


VERSE:
   Let us therefore make every effort to do what leads to peace and to mutual edification.
    -- Romans 14:19
       http://www.SearchGodsWord.org/desk/?query=Romans+14:19

THOUGHT:
   "Make every effort!" That's quite a challenge. But notice where that exertion is to be focused: peace and mutual edification. Both sides of this exhortation are two way responsibilities. I must pursue and share peace if I am going to have it myself. I must
edify, and be open to being edified, if mutual edification is going to happen. In other words, we live with other people in God's family. He wants us to be responsible for making relationships work in our spiritual family. He reminds us it will require strenuous effort. But, isn't that true in every family relationship? Love means sacrifice, effort, and concern for others. When we share our love willingly, however, we're much more likely to see it coming back to us!

PRAYER:
   Dear Heavenly Father, forgive me for my impatience and selfishness. Defeat the bad attitude of competitiveness that I often display in arguments and disagreements with others in your family. Energize me by your Spirit to see areas where I can be a
blessing and an encouragement to others. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

UNDIVIDED, INDIVISIBLE

Philippians 2:1-2
    http://www.SearchGodsWord.org/desk/?query=Philippians+2:1-2

   Dear Father, One God of your one holy people,

   Help me never to be a party to any division within the body of Christ. Let me be perfectly united in mind and heart with all others who follow you.

   Help me not to be some kind of -ite, -ist, or -anian. Keep me from misplacing my loyalties with this person or that!

   Christ, of whom I am part, is not divided. He is of one mind. So let me and all his people be together and in agreement.

   Let us be like-minded, having the same love, one in spirit and purpose.   

   In the name of Jesus Christ, the source of our unity and salvation, I ask these things. Amen.

Psalm 94:19

VERSE:
   When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought joy to my soul.
    -- Psalm 94:19
       http://www.SearchGodsWord.org/desk/?query=Psalm+94:19

THOUGHT:
   God is our comforter, sustainer, and Lord. Only his gracious presence and tender blessings can bring consolation and comfort to our restless and discouraged souls. So let's turn to him, honestly confessing both our sins and our sorrows. Let's ask him to take our anxiety away and restore to us the passion, the joy, and the confidence of our salvation.

PRAYER:
   Almighty Shepherd, in the noise and confusion of many thoughts burdened by many concerns, minister to me through your Holy Spirit. I need your comfort and peace. I ask for your presence and your grace. In Jesus' name I ask. Amen.
