The TENTH Devotional Journal, Day 1
LORD, I Am Available To You
Day 1 Scripture Basis
The following Scripture Basis summarizes today’s learning goal(s). This is what you should take with you from the daily theme to remind you of the day’s lessons.
|Luke||6||12, 20-23||“LORD, I Am Available To You”|
12 Now at this time Jesus went off to the mountain to pray, and He spent the whole night in prayer to God. Luke 6:12
Availability is a decision. Either you will make God a priority or you will serve idols. Yes, it is that simple. Consider a Woman (not that one, an imaginary one). We’ll call her, She. I am sure she did not start out saying, “I am going to do this job and take my money and forget God.” It happened because She thought God was leading her to that job and at first, it accomplished everything she was looking for. She got a raise and a car and a new home.
Then, She was required to work overtime, Monday Thru Friday. Then Saturdays were mandatory. Then Sundays were optional but She needed the money because she took on more debt when she got her first paycheck, and now the company is downsizing and She is looking for a second job because she cannot afford to stop working 80 hours per week and does not know from day to day whether She will be laid off.
She used to have devotional time every night before bed, in addition to attending worship services throughout the week – not only on the Sabbath. She was involved in serving her community and her church. She felt and seemed like every day was filled with blessings. She knew that God was working in her life.
Then She only had a few hours at night, three nights a week, to spend with God. Then it was only on the Sabbath, before going to the office. Finally, she did not feel the presence of God anymore. She was making good money and wondered why she felt empty in spite of living her “best life.”
