Oh Lord, I pray that people will decide today to give themselves to You fully. May they no longer put one foot in Your kingdom and the other in the world. I know that to live our lives for You, we must be more than talk, but also walk the walk. And help us all to prioritize our time better each day, that we may find ample amount of time to read the Bible, pray, and to serve You with our whole hearts. The devices now-a-days have taken many people away from You, and I pray that they may return to You once again. Sure, there are good things that come with TV, our phones and computers, but there are also many evil things that go with them as well. One thing that I know of, Lord, is that they are addicting. Once a good show comes on, then we want to watch the entire season. And once our favorite sports team starts playing, we don’t want to miss seeing any of their games. Even apps on our phones have become a hit for people, where they can’t stop playing and talking about them. And when was the last time that they opened the Bible and acted this way, God? What I see here are people that are excited for things that the world gives them, instead of being excited for what You can lead them to do. This is really disturbing and I pray that there will be a breakthrough in people’s lives, before their time is up. Otherwise, they will have gotten the joy they wanted in those things and then be disappointed when they face You in judgment. Lord, I know that only the things that You offer me has true joy in it. I also know that salvation can only come from You, Jesus. Therefore, I give You my whole heart each day, for other things deprive me from Your presence. I love You God. Amen.
1 Corinthians 10:14 (KJV)
14 Wherefore, my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry.
If anything is coming before God, then it is an idol. How much time is given towards other things and not the Bible and prayer?
