THE BEST IS FOR THE LORD

THE BEST IS FOR THE LORD    

Today’s Word: Psalm 95:1-11

Today’s Bible Reading:

Morning: Matthew 27: 1-26

Night: Leviticus 15-16

Today’s Inspiration

When looking to buy a gift for someone who we think is very deserving in our lives or someone who we love, we’ll go to the mall to look for and buy the best gift for this person. Why? Because we think this person deserves to receive the best of us.

A mother will provide the best nutrition for their children, even the parents will send their children to the best schools. When we pray to God, we also ask the best for the Lord. Yes, all of us were definitely want to get the best in life. But have we ever said that to ourselves, do I give the best for the Lord? What is best for the Lord?

Some say I will serve in the church, I will join the choir, I will be very jealous and provide funds for the church construction, I will take a Bible class, and I will read spiritual books and many other things. All is nice and good. But God says what is best for God is when we are willing to listen to God. Why does God want us to hear?

God does not want us to like the Israelites who did not enter into the Promised Land because they hardened their hearts to refuse to listen to the voice of God. God with longing heart takes us to the Promised Land, which is a life filled with abundance and through our lives a lot of people receive blessings, therefore God’s name be glorified. And that can only happen if we listen to God.

TODAY’S VERSE TO REMEMBER:

“But Samuel replied: ‘Does the LORD delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as much as in obeying the LORD? To obey is better than sacrifice, and to heed is better than the fat of rams.’” (1 Samuel 15:22)   

TODAY’S ACTION:                 

Come to the Lord today with all your heart, open your ears and listen to His voice.

TODAY’S QUOTE:

Listening to God is to give a heart to obey His voice.
