Take a quick look at a calendar, any calendar, and you will see that the week starts on Sunday. Many times we tend to look at Sundays as an end to a week instead of a beginning of another week. It does matter how we start our week.
Here lately, I have been seeing a trend in getting comfortable with giving God leftovers. We go to a job for eight to twelve hours a day. We travel for our family and their extra-curricular activities. We give everything else time and attention. But when it comes to God, we have a hard time focusing our hearts and attention on Him. Although online church has become a way of protection as well as a convenient way to spread the Gospel, many will not even make time to see it at home when it is scheduled. They will get the Word “when they can,” and many times, that will not happen.
Just something to think about…It does matter how you start your week.
The Power of a Decision
I just want to share a thought with you about how important and powerful your decisions are. The thing about a decision is that emotions and signs don’t often follow but that doesn’t make that decision any less powerful. For instance, if you decide to start working out three to four times a week, you probably won’t feel wind outside or see a rainbow as a sign that you should go forward with this decision. As a matter of fact, most of us, when we received Christ as Savior and Lord of our lives, didn’t see any sign. We just followed through with our decision. But just because we didn’t see any sign following our decision doesn’t mean our decision was any less powerful.
God gave us the gift of choice. Because He is love (1 John 4:8) He gives us the opportunity to choose. And even more, He wants us to not only choose but to confident in the decision we are making even without a sign. Deciding to walk in deliverance and healing daily is not an easy feat. We must know it by faith. We walk by faith and not by sight (2 Corinthians 5:7).
I love to journal my thoughts I receive in prayer. "Chronicles" is my journey I'm sharing with you.
