It is for freedom Christ has set us free. The question is whether or not we are ready to prepare the way for our liberator.
Lord God, You teach me that man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord (Deut. 8:3). Please develop in me a hunger for Your presence and Your Word that exceeds any physical cravings I could ever experience.
Your Word tells me that one handful with tranquility is better than two handfuls with toil and chasing after the wind (Eccles. 4:6). Please set me free from the false security that comes from having more of anything than I really need.
Help me to know Your love that surpasses knowledge—that I may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God (Eph. 3:19).
