Memorize and Reflect
“‘The glory of this present house will be greater than the glory of the former house,’ says the Lord Almighty. ‘And in this place I will grant peace,’ declares the Lord Almighty.” (Haggai 2:9)
Ask the Holy Spirit to infuse you with the strength needed to follow God in the direction he is guiding you. Each morning, upon rising, repeat this request as there is a good chance you’re going to face some challenges throughout the day that may seem overwhelming. You will receive what is needed to get through as you depend on Him.
“Live It!” Challenge
As Peter says in the first chapter of 2nd Peter; remind yourself of what you already know and are firmly grounded in. We all need daily doses of replenishing and reminding to keep us fresh for the work set before us. Pray and ask God what areas you most need reminding and refreshing in. Then let him pour his truths in once again, to invigorate and renew your daily battle effort. He never gets tired of us needing Him!
