I have witnessed many weddings. Young and even old people fall in love with one another and begin to pursue a relationship that holds them together for many years. Marriages produce children, partnerships, businesses and even entire nations. However all this begins with an individual acknowledging the fact that they love someone. Some try to deny it for a while but eventually give in to what they know to be true and acknowledge it. That is the first step in a long journey that spans generations and creates civilizations. The same applies with the work of God in our lives. We must acknowledge what God is doing in us.
The things we acknowledge are amplified. The things we ignore are diminished. Acknowledging the handy work of God in our lives positions us to magnify, increase and enjoy that good work in us. Ignoring what God has started in you means it will eventually diminish to the point where you can even remember a thing about it. What is God doing in your life this season? Where are you with God on the journey of life? What is the word of God for you right now? Place the things of God on the top of your life and ever keep your eye on what God is working in your life for the season. Refuse to be consumed by what the world or the devil is up to. Have a single eye, ever focused on what God is doing in your life today and acknowledge it in all your ways.
SCRIPTURE READING: Philippians 4:8-9 For the rest, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is worthy of reverence and is honorable and seemly, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely and lovable, whatever is kind and winsome and gracious, if there is any virtue and excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think on and weigh and take account of these things [fix your minds on them]. Practice what you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, and model your way of living on it, and the God of peace (of untroubled, undisturbed well-being) will be with you.
DEVOTION PRAYER: Oh Lord, I acknowledge all the things that you are doing in my life. I refuse to be consumed by the standards of this world. Amen
