Day 34 – Follow Jesus.

Mark 1:17

“Come, follow me,”

 

There is something amazing that will happen to each and every one of us when we decide to follow Jesus. Not just following Him with regular church attendance, acts of kindness, or with nice words, but following Him with our entire hearts and our entire lives. There were several instances in scripture where Jesus asked people to follow Him. Some of them knew who was making the ask and took a step of faith to follow Jesus, yet others thought that taking their own direction in life would be best. Following Jesus doesn’t just mean a happy eternal ending in Heaven, it means that He will be with us through all of life’s twists, turns, ups and downs. There is nothing or no one else in this world that can give us that kind of assurance, peace and hope.

Where are you at today? Have you decided to follow Jesus? Are you okay doing things on your own?

Perhaps you’re just one prayer away from placing your life completely in His hands. Maybe you’re just one prayer away from really following Jesus. Your life will never be the same. Pray to God. Place your life wholeheartedly in His hands. Follow Jesus.

Is there anything that I can help you pray for today?

Day 33 – Lift Someone’s Arms.

Exodus 17:12
When Moses’ hands grew tired, they took a stone and put it under him and he sat on it. Aaron and Hur held his hands up—one on one side, one on the other—so that his hands remained steady till sunset.

When you have some time today, you need to read this blow by blow battle story of the Israelites and the Amalekites. There are so many great leadership and life lessons within these nine verses. But for now, we’ll just focus on a simple, game changing one.

Read it quickly, and then come back…

In the midst of the battle, and in the midst of the heat, Moses was not able to keep has hands raised on his own. He needed the help of Aaron and Hur. When it was most critical in the time of battle, Moses needed the help of others to lift his hands so that the battle could be won.

When we go into our times of spiritual warfare and spiritual battles, we too need the help of others to keep us accountable to stay the course, to be supported and covered in prayer, and to be encouraged to keep our hands lifted high in worship. Sometimes that may mean the difference between a victory and a loss.

So ask The Lord to surround you with men and women that will help to keep your hands lifted high in prayer through all of life’s battles.

How can I help to lift your hands this week in prayer?

Would you please take a minute or two to lift me in your prayers – prayer for wisdom and strength during this new season of change.
