Week 2 : Living With Jesus
Everyone loves and hopes for encounters with Jesus. But often, we can drift away from His presence when we are not constantly filled by Him. The mundaneness of life and responsibilities that we have to fulfil daily can prevent us from making encounters with Jesus a normal part of our lives. This week, let’s develop a discipline to set our eyes on Jesus daily and live with Him intentionally.
Day 8 – A Steadfast Obedience
As for Philip, an angel of the Lord said to him, “ Go south down the desert road that runs from Jerusalem to Gaza.” So he started out, and he met the treasurer of Ethiopia, a eunuch of great authority under the Kandake, the queen of Ethiopia. The eunuch had gone to Jerusalem to worship, and he was now returning. Seated in his carriage, he was reading aloud from the book of the prophet Isaiah. The Holy Spirit said to Philip, “Go over and walk along beside the carriage.” Acts 8:26-29
1. Ask the Holy Spirit for an increased sensitivity to His voice.
2. Commit to obey whenever He prompts you to action.
3. Pray for an unwavering commitment to partner with God in seeing breakthroughs happen in your life and the lives of those around you.
Thank you Lord, that you would use me to partner with You in seeing miracles and breakthroughs take place. Forgive me for the times I ran away from Your call. In every situation, help me to remain steadfast and obey you wholeheartedly. Today, I choose to heed Your directions. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
