Reading God’s Word: Joshua 14-15, Psalm 128

Memorizing God’s Word: Ephesians 2:8-9 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith — and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God — not by works, so that no one can boast.

Meditating on God’s Word: Psalm 128:1 Blessed are all who fear the Lord, who walk in obedience to him.

Praying God’s Word: Lord, it seems like I have always wanted your blessing. I have always wanted the good things and the good feelings you provide. But there are times when I mess up, and don’t feel very blessed, and all too late I realize I haven’t been obedient nor followed you as I should. Yes, it’s me, it’s me, O Lord, standing in the need of prayer! Forgive me for wanting your blessing when I haven’t bowed before you, and surrendered my will and ways to you. May my walk finally follow in your footsteps. Amen.
