Fighting to Focus on Jesus…

April 2, 2018

OneWalk: Under the Sun, with the Son
Fighting to Focus on Jesus…

I seek His guidance likening my heart to His because I believe this quote… “Our behavior displays what’s in our hearts.”

So when I open my eyes each morning I pray this version of the Lords Prayer…

Our Father who art in heaven,
hallowed be Thy name.
10 Thy Kingdom come.
Thy will be done.
On earth,
as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread
12 and forgive us our trespasses,
as we have forgiven those who trespassed against us.
13 And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.

For Thine is the kingdom,
and the power, and the glory,
for ever and ever.

Matthew 6:9-13

and my modified version of the prayer of Jabez…

O Lord
that You would bless me and mine indeed,
that You enlarge our territory for fulfillment of Your will,
that Your hand would be with us,
that You would keep us from the evil,
and that we may not cause any pain.

1 Chronicles 4:9-10

Then read daily verses and a chapter from the from Jesus Centered Bible, a daily devotion (current favorites, My Utmost for His Highest, Jesus Calling and Life for Leaders), listening to worship music on K-Love radio app.

Today’s verse…

Matthew 14:31 NLT
Jesus immediately reached out and grabbed him. "You have so little faith," Jesus said. "Why did you doubt me?"

But Jesus spoke to them at once. "Don’t be afraid," he said. "Take courage. I am here!"
