THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS


DAILY DEVOTIONS

HI!

A police officer pulled an elderly lady over.
He went to her car and said, “Ma’am may I see your license, Please?”

She said, “I just DON’T understand!
You guys need to make up your mind!
Yesterday you TOOK my license, and today you want to SEE it!”

Ps 5:1-3
1 To the chief Musician upon Ne'-hi-loth, A Psalm of David.
Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my meditation.
2 Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto thee will I pray.
3 My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.
KJV

Some of us are like the elderly lady in the joke above:
our communication lines are BROKEN!

Good communication is essential for the growth of any relationship.
A business, without good communication, will soon fail.
A marriage, without good communication, will soon fail.

As Christians, it is essential that we maintain good communications with our Lord.
David understood that.
He determined that he would call unto God daily and communicate with Him often.
In another place, David committed to prayer THREE times a day!
(Ps 55:17, “Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and He shall hear my voice.”)

When we communicate with God, our prayer should be GENUINE.
Too often, we just come to God in prayer for things we need help with, or things we desire.
But our prayers should have the intent of GROWING in a relationship with God.

Yes, we should certainly ask God for guidance in decision making.
And, we should also praise Him for His continued blessings.
Also, we should talk to God about growing in understanding of His Word, and of His Person;
AND, we should talk to God about growing in usefulness to Him...fulfilling His purposes in our lives.

In order to deepen the joy in your relationship with God, deepen your communication with Him!

Love ya!
