Our first Wednesday E-votional focuses on our word for 2021 - ALWAYS.
"I keep my eyes always on the LORD. With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken."
In this nation of plenty it seems that there is ALWAYS MORE to be gotten. Even with the current “slow down” we continue to find a way to get what we need and often more of what we want. Even though we may spend less time on the road searching for our desired purchases, we satisfy these desires with on-line shopping and door-step to door- step delivery services. The ALWAYS MORE lifestyle lives on meeting our needs while driving us toward our wants.
In the world of sports, ALWAYS MORE wins are a certain preference. Competition is built on this innate desire. This “will to win” is what counts even when the “skill to win” is lacking. In the losses valuable life lessons are learned. Handling defeats with grace builds strong character into the lives of players.
“Be MORE concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are.” Coach John Wooden, UCLA
God wants the combination of His steady, constant calling and warm, personal counsel in scripture to come to characterize us, keeping us alert for whatever he will do next. Romans 15:4 The Message
The word “MORE” is used 542 times in the NIV Bible. It is used in the scripture below reminding reminds us that God is the author of the “MORE” in life. As we trust Him for our needs and leave our wants at his feet a balanced lifestyle emerges…
If God is for us, who can be against us? In all these things we are MORE than conquerors through him who loved us. Romans 8:31 & 37 NIV
PRAYER: Dear Lord, I want to know you more as I grow in you. Thank you for reminding me that you are on my side. I put my trust in you to fill the “ALWAYS MORE” in my life as you build my character with your conquering spirit. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
MORE OF YOU TO KNOW – MORE OF ME TO GROW…ALWAYS MORE!
As for me, I will always have hope; I will praise you MORE and MORE. Psalm 71:14
