40 Days of Compassion - Day 11 - Love God With All Your Soul
Begin your time with God in prayer.
Praise God for who He is. Confess any sin so that nothing blocks your fellowship with Him. Ask God to use the Spirit and the Word to transform your life.
Let God’s Word penetrate your head and your heart.
Read Mark 12:30-31 slowly and purposely. Allow God to write it on your heart.
Loving God with our soul is akin to loving God with the very center of our being. It the choice to give everything else in our lives second place to Him. Let me assure you, this is a process and is accomplished by daily allowing the Holy Spirit to show you how you can live for God and love Him more.
Apply God’s Word to your life.
· Praise God for His unfailing love, His goodness and His righteousness.
· What keeps you from yielding your whole life to God?
· What is one thing you can do today to give that part of your life to God?
Father, I praise You and thank You for showing us how to love through the life of Jesus. Help me to love You with all that I am today. I want to sense Your presence as I walk through my day. I want Your Word to direct my path. May You be pleased with how I live today. Amen.
