Dominion mandate daily devotional;RETRACE YOUR STEPS.
Wednesday, March 15, 2017.
Bible in one year: Ruth.
In a relationship sometimes people ask their spouse these questions: what happened to us? How did it get this bad? Where did we miss it? Christianity is a relationship and not a religion. God is asking us today where did we miss it? What happened to our first love?
If we don’t remember from where we have fallen, we will not know how to get back. The first thing we need to do is to remember the love initially had for God’s word, prayer, fellowship and witnessing, we will be inspired to action. The second step to return to our first love is to ‘repent “. It means to change ones thinking. It is clearly connected with changed behavior, as seen in the following phrase ” and do the deeds you did at first.
Jesus is asking you to change your attitude toward your attitude toward your love for him. We are to reverse our lackluster love into a burning love for Jesus. Think about the dept if love you have for him. Change your apathetic love to an appreciating love for Him. God wants to be closer to us than we want to be” Draw near to God and he will draw near to you.” But if we don’t Jesus says that He will remove us from a sphere of effectiveness or possibly out of existence totally. If we do not repent the Lord would remove our ability to bear witness for Him.
PRAYER: Dear Jesus I know I have hurt you so much by turning away from my first love. Please dear Lord I am sorry, I make this prayer with the help of the Holy Spirit to return to my first love and to be faithful to your service, so help me Lord. Amen.
