Citizenship gives us rights and authority!
Since, then, you have been raised with Christ,
set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated
at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above,
not on earthly things.
Thank You for today. Thank you for raising us up with Jesus Christ, our Savior. Help each of us to set our minds on things above and not on things in this world. Help us to take our thoughts captive and renew our minds with things of Jesus.
We are not citizens here on earth.
We are citizens of Heaven sent here as ambassadors. Empower each of us to take that job very seriously so that no one we know will meet Jesus and be turned away by the King because He does not know them. You make it so easy to be known – but You rely on each of us to share the Word.
When we come into Your throne room, give each of us an awareness of our right to be there. We come before you with boldness and confidence because of our love for Jesus and Your love for us. Show those around us who need hope and light in their life.
We pray all this in Jesus Christ’s name.
Today’s Transformation Tip – Write It Down
Do you journal? I find when I ask this question there is not much middle ground. People either do or they don’t.
From my own personal experience, I find that journaling has been critical in my spiritual growth. I’ve journaled consistently for more than 5 years now and I can look back through my journals and see prayers that have been answered that show in black and white how God is working in my life.
I can see my spiritual growth like crazy.
There are no rights or wrongs in journaling.
What works for me is oftentimes jotting down random thoughts, song lyrics that touch my heart, Bible verses or pieces of devotions that I read. I will also write down my prayers and my heart’s cries to God. What I’ve experienced in the last couple of years is that God will often use my pen to write responses back to me!! This is so awesome and so intimately personal. It’s hard to describe but it’s very real and I encourage you to get a notebook and a pen and start today. Be sure to date your entries and save your journals.
Every so often go back through your journals and marvel at your growth and how amazing God is!!
Stay in the Light and Love always,
