Look Ahead devotional

This week Matt discussed how we start our day. Most mornings, do we hit the snooze button? Pull the pillow over our heads? Do we have an ALARM clock or an OPPORTUNITIY clock?

Matt said we can take Jesus up on the greatest offer we’ll ever receive: to welcome Jesus into our lives, thoughts, actions, plans, and feelings. Every part of us! And that includes mornings.

He also talked about how we end our day. Maybe you haven’t thought of it before, but in scripture we read that the day actually begins at sundown the evening before. Do we go to sleep peacefully, trusting Jesus to walk with us every moment? Or, are we stressed out thinking about our kids, bills, to-do lists, job, school project, shortcomings, and how we thought our lives should have turned out?

Jesus invites us to start the morning asking God for wisdom, guidance and strength, and plan to ruthlessly eliminate hurry from life. In the evening, ask Him to wash your mind and heart and submit to God’s control of your life.

Action Plan

Tomorrow night when you lay your head down on the pillow, do a little review of the day. Thank Jesus for going with you in the day. Decide if you’d like to spend another day with Him and go for it!

If you would, invite Him to join you, because He’d love to be in every moment of your life. This could change your life in 2018.
