Manna For Today: Saturday, July 30, 2016
Devotion is our being wholehearted toward God. In our current cultural context, we can easily compartmentalize our hearts giving God His room among the many rooms that divide our hearts.
Consider the following five (5) areas and related scriptures that help us to give our hearts to God:
1. Give your heart in love!
Deuteronomy 6:5 – You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.
2. Give your heart in obedience!
Psalm 119:2 – Blessed are those who keep His testimonies, who seek Him with the whole heart!
Psalm 119:34 – Give me understanding, and I shall keep Your law; indeed, I shall observe it with my whole heart.
3. Give your heart in trust!
Proverbs 3:5 – Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding.
4. Give your heart in prayer!
Jeremiah 29:13 – And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.
5. Give your heart in repentance!
Joel 2:12 – “Now, therefore,” says the LORD, “Turn to Me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning.”
Practice these daily and share them with someone to do the same!
Peace and blessings!
