Daily Light on The Daily Path

He shall see of the travail of his soul and shall be satisfied.

~ Isa 53:11

Jesus … said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.—He hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

This people have I formed for myself; they shall shew forth my praise.—To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God, according to the eternal purpose which be purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord.—That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.

After that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.—Ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light.

John 19:30, 2 Cor 5:21, Isa 43:21, Eph 3:10-11, Eph 2:7, Eph 1:13-14, 1 Pet 2:9

Focus

Look straight ahead, and fix your eyes on what lies before you.
~ Proverbs 4:25 [NLT]

When we live distracted lives, we live destroyed by the enemy of our soul.  The enemy loves when we reach for more and focus on what’s next.  As long as our eyes are consumed with what depends on us, we aren’t able to depend on God.  Focus your eyes on Jesus.  Don’t let your possessions, career or any other good gift God gives, possess you.  May all those things be tools to better serve the Lord.

Evening Prayer

GIFTS AND SERVICE
1 Corinthians 12:4-7, 11-12, 27-28

In Jesus’ Name, I Pray God’s Will for You

May you appreciate the different gifts given by the Holy Spirit to those in the body of Christ. May you realize that each individual has been appointed a specific act of service for the common good. Likewise, may you realize your own gifting and assigned service, in order that you may fulfill your role in the body of Christ. I pray that you will rest secure wherever God may call you. May you honor and glorify Him through your work. I pray that you will discover the gift that the Holy Spirit has given you and fulfill the acts of service God has appointed for you.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
