DEUTERONOMY 10:12 (CEB)
Now in light of all that, Israel, what does the LORD your God ask of you? Only this: to revere the LORD your God by walking in all his ways, by loving him, by serving the LORD your God with all your heart and being...
JAMES 1:22 (MSG)
Don’t fool yourself into thinking that you are a listener when you are anything but, letting the Word go in one ear and out the other. Act on what you hear!
The kind of faith that counts is the kind that acts on what God says to do.
Thank you, God, for all your messages -- all your instruction and direction. I confess that I pretend that I'm a better listener than I really am. I'm pretty sure you know that, yet you graciously continue to teach me. Help me to move beyond mere appearances. Realign my life so that it is completely in sync with your agenda. When I hear your instruction I'm going to just do it. Amen.
