Click on this piano piece above. While listening, reflect on today’s reading. What lesson is God teaching? Think about what you may pray for today. Is there a plan of action God is giving you? Pray for details in carrying out the plans God has for you.
Robert Schuller who started the Hour of Power television program said once, “The truth of the matter is that you always know the right thing to do. The hard part is doing it”.

God gives us instructions; He has the perfect plan with all the answers but it is up to us to be disciplined and follow.
How we live sets an example for the future. This day with God, I’m praying that I set a good example so that those that follow in my footsteps will realize the importance of God in our lives. He is with us and for us and wants the best for us.
