Here On Purpose

Good Monday.  If you're joining us for the first time, let me welcome you to this devotional blog.  I call this Here on Purpose because there are lots of other things you could be doing rather than reading your Bible.  But, you have chosen to give this specific time to Jesus.  Here is how we typically use this time.

We pray first and read our Bible last.  Why?  Because the Bible will speak to the things you prayed about.  Here is our framework for prayer:

1. Wow! - Brag on God.  Take some time and tell God why you think he's awesome.

2. Now... - Tell God about your life.  Here you share it all, the good, the bad, and the ugly.  

3. How? - Stop talking and start listening as God speaks to you by his Holy Spirit and by His Word.  

Today's Reading (read as much or as little as you like):  As you read, ask and answer these 2 questions, 1)What is God saying to me?  an What will I do about it?

Proverbs chapter 16

Joshua chapter 1

Ephesians chapter 4

Utmost for His Highest 

4. KaBoom!! - Experience God's power as you walk in obedience.  

Enjoy your time with the Lord.
