START YOUR DAY RIGHT- Be Honest with God

Be Honest with God

2/15

Psalm 26:6-7

Each morning we need to come clean with God. If there is anything between us and God, when we try to pray and get into His presence, it will bother us until we deal honestly with it. God wants us to confess our faults. I have found over the years in a ministry of dealing with other people, and also in dealing with my own flesh that we don’t really like to confront wrongdoing as we should.  Most of us like to make excuses, but excuses keep us deceived. An excuse is a reason stuffed with a lie. The Bible says that the truth will set us free (john 8:32). Honesty with God will free us to enjoy our whole day.

The Weight of Worry

How wonderful that God personally cares about those things that worry us and prey upon our thoughts. He cares about them more than we care about them. Not a single nagging, aching, worrisome, stomach-tensing, blood-pressure-raising thought escapes His notice. (1Peter 5:7 )“You can throw the whole weight of your anxieties upon him, for you are his personal concern”.  Isn’t that Good? He genuinely cares. He is able to bear all the weight of your worry. Because you are His personal concern, you never disappear from His radar screen.

Receive Mercy

2/16

Psalm 25:10

The Israelites were lost in the wilderness because they didn’t believe that their problems were their own fault. They blamed Moses, God and everybody else for their sorrows. They refused to take responsibility for their sins, and their unwillingness to repent kept them from entering the Promised Land. When you talk with God, be sure to ask for forgiveness. “If we [freely] admit that we have sinned and confess our sins, He is faithful and just  (true to His own nature and promises) and [continuously] cleanse us from all unrighteousness [everything not in conformity to His will in purpose, thought, and action]” 1 John 1:9. Repent in the morning to enjoy God’s mercy, forgiveness, and love all day.
