What could we ask other than wisdom to help us to walk uprightly before God? What is that stops us from walking in the ways of the Lord or obeying God? Will one or a few costly sacrifice and offering help us for our daily renewal? I Kgs 3
Lord, none of Your gifts can replace our need for You,-Your presence, and Your power in our lives, so more than any gift we seek You as our reward.
Lord, we realize that no gift is a substitute for your presence, power, and purpose in our lives to direct our paths to walk uprightly before You and obey You.
What kind of emotions arise in us as we see talented people to support our interest? Will we delight in them or will we delight in the Lord? Whose hand brings protection and whose hand brings calamity? 2 Sam 23:23-24:17
Lord, we acknowledge that talented people among us are placed among us for Your credit, forgive us if we ever tend to see them for our credit.
Lord, let our hearts never delight in the talented people among us because it is You who gave them to us and You who direct our ways to success.
