It's so great to not have to always be "right" anymore. I realize now that your yoke is so light because YOU carry most of the burden!!!! Thank you, Father!!

Dearest Heavenly Father, You are the Ruler of all creation. You have no beginning and no end. We humble ourselves before You this morning. We give thanks for creating us. Please help us show our gratitude by the way we live. Please put aside our selfish ambitions. May all that we do be in Your name and for Your glory. Please change our hearts today, Father. May we put You first in all that we do. May our eyes and hearts be only focused on You and what You would have us do. Please allow the Holy Spirit to guide us and speak to us to give us direction and show us Your way. May we meditate on Your Word to apply it in our everyday endeavors so that Your name is glorified. Please quiet our minds and our hearts so that we hear Your voice more clearly. Thank you for considering us worthy through the power and grace of Jesus. Please use us today for You. In the sweet name of Jesus, Amen

I need help with this one. I say the right things when I pray. I tell God I am surrendered to Him. But in my life, I'm not. I need help with genuine surrender to God. Surrender that goes beyond just SAYING that I surrender. That's my prayer and my request for help.

Glorious Father, we humbly come to the throne of grace today to thank You for reminding us that You are always first. First in our hearts, first in our minds, and the first we want to please with our actions. Empower us to lay aside our human pride and bow to You. Let all we do bring glory to You and the kingdom. Praying in the name of Jesus. Amen.

love this one.. becoming second to God creates new life and revitalizes you.. we begin to see what wonderful things he has for us.

DAY 204: Get Down to Find Your Crown

For the Lord takes delight in his people; he crowns the humble with victory. 
~ Psalm 149:4

 When pride is set aside and you choose to become second to God, it's easier to win the day.

We aren't talking about weakness or being someone else's punching bag.  We are talking about bowing your heart before God - the creator of YOUR universe.

This life is between you and God. Start there. What prideful things will you lay down today?
