ASK OF GOD WITH RIGHT MOTIVES
Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.
May my heart be in the right understanding of the spiritual realm. If I look at earthly things I will ask for earthly things. If I look at the spiritual world then I will ask for spiritual things. Let me focus on the spiritual and not the temporal things. Let me ask of God without earthly lust. All things of this earth now in this life amount to nothing compared to his kingdom to come.
Verses to meditate on today
As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.
For I long to see you, that I may impart unto you some spiritual gift, to the end ye may be established;
And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.
Song for my day
Hillsong (Gift of Love)
Today as I realize my life is nothing without your holy spirit guiding me let me turn to eternal things to come and not what I am seeing now.
