"Delight thyself in the LORD and he shall give you the desires of your heart."-Psalm 37:4
"It is because of a the hasty and superficial conversation with God that the sense of sin is so weak and tat no motive has power to help you to hate and flee form sin as you should"- A.W. Tozer
Lately I know that I have been depending on myself more that I have been depending on you. With all the things that I need to do, I find myself saying, “Lord I need you,” yet I feel that I am not in need of You. I put myself in a position where I decide that after I pray for strength and wisdom, my source of strength and knowledge comes from my own ability to do it on my own. Lord forgive me when I say that I am yielding to you yet I do no exemplify this attitude in my thoughts and actions.
Secondly, forgive me for having a divided and unfocused heart when it comes to sometimes reading Your word. I read with the wrong intention of trying to understand by trying to get what I want to get out of your word, rather than letting you speak first (just like my problem of trying to finish the replies of other people’s conversations or finishing their stories out of excitement.) I fall short in letting my ear incline to your voice. Help me be a sheep who knows your voice immediate when I hear it, so that when you call me by name, I will reply hastily.
Lastly I repent that I am a sinner who lacks humility in many things: school, work, my own spiritual life and addressing other people’s spiritual lives. Remind me that I am a SINNER, first. Second that I am NOTHING without your redemption since I cannot save myself. and Last that you are the TREASURE of my life. The only one that I should boast for is in and by Your name alone, not by another name.
In the name of your precious Son Jesus Christ I pray,
