Father, today is a day to get a few things done and also a day to enjoy some time together with Karen. Help me to be diligent and bless our time together – ever growing in love! Amen.
Matthew 10:1-15 (<<click the green)
Lord, moving forward with Your heart for reaching the lost You sent out Your workers, the twelve disciples, into the “fields”. You sent them to minister to the “people of Israel” and they readily obeyed Your command.
I realize that I am already in the tenth chapter but it seems to me that You have given them a hefty dose of responsibility right off the bat. You “gave them authority to cast out evil [unclean] spirits and to heal every kind of disease and illness.” No mention is made of any hesitancy on their parts, though some had only been following You for a year and the rest for roughly two years.
They have seen the Master at work and are up for the task at hand. You know them through and through and know they are ready to do as You ask.
Lord, I have followed You for a good part of my life. I have truly done my best to be obedient to Your call on my life. But it is easy to second guess myself. Lord…You know me through and through and You know what I am capable of doing to further Your kingdom. I am ready for the challenge. Guide me. Show me the way I should go. I give myself over to You. Use me and may I not be one to shy away from Your commands. Amen.
