Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. (Colossians 3:12, NLT)
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
Too often, when something doesnt go the way we expect, we make the mistake of telling ourselves, Its not fair. Its not right. When that changes, when it improves, then Ill have a better attitude. No, youve got to make the first move. You do your part and God will do His part. Quit worrying about God changing another person, and allow God to change you first.
Is there something youre letting overwhelm you? Maybe you think its too much. Why dont you get up every morning and make this simple declaration, God, I want to thank You that I can handle anything that comes my way today. I can handle a difficult boss. I can handle getting stuck in traffic. I can handle my plans not working out. Lord, thank You that Ill have a good attitude wherever I am.
Decide ahead of time that you are going to stay in an attitude of faith and expectancy. Choose to clothe yourself with mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Choose Gods ways and let Him order your steps all the days of your life.
A Prayer for Today
Father, today I clothe myself with peace. I clothe myself with mercy and patience. I choose to walk in Your ways so that I can live as an example of Your love everywhere I go in Jesus name. Amen.
