Note: I fasted from social media pictures (FB, Instagram) and from my blog during the Easter season to focus more on my private prayer life. It was incredible and transformational. I challenge you to consider what good things may distract you from the greatest things and consider times of fasting to focus your life on following Jesus everyday.
Deuteronomy 30:6 “The LORD your God will change (literally circumcise) your heart and the hearts of all your descendants, so that you will love Him with all your heart and soul and so you may live!”
What is God saying to me? Moses has been speaking to Israel at length about the need to listen to and obey God. Remember the Shema: “Love the Lord your God with all you heart, with all your soul and with all your might.” Now Moses says that even this response will happen as a result of God’s work in their lives – GRACE.
How will I obey? I am going to ask God in prayer to change my heart and the hearts of my kids to love Him completely so that we may live.
Who will I tell? Miller.
Are you trying to love God with all your heart and soul on your own? Invite Him to do open heart surgery.
As part of my desire to follow Jesus everyday, I am reading the One Year Bible and daily asking the questions above.
