Today’s Promise is Isaiah 28:16 NKJV:
“Behold, I lay in Zion a stone for a foundation,
A tried stone, a precious cornerstone, a sure foundation;
Whoever believes will not act hastily.”
Believing on Christ does not make us perfect. It is the means by which we are perfected. Part of this process is having the ability to govern our emotions and therefore our choices, instead of being governed by them. The Holy Spirit empowers us to pause in the heat of a moment and receive His guidance. As Peter tells us in 1 Peter 2:6, it is this guidance that keeps us from being put to shame by our rash words and actions. It is also this guidance that reveals God’s glory through us as we allow Him to act and speak through us. This is how we become a light in the darkness. His Light.
Heavenly Father, fill me with Your Spirit, in Jesus’ name, and help me to listen to Him and obey, that I may bring You only glory with my words and actions. Make me your light in a dark world. Amen.
Have a victorious day in the Lord!
