Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer and Reflection for 2.27.12

To fear the Lord is to hate evil; I hate pride and arrogance, evil behavior and perverse speech.

Proverbs 8:13

Pray
Father thank You for this day, another day to express my gratitude and joy. Father I want to be more like Jesus. I want to walk with the sense of dignity that comes from doing right, living right, speaking and acting in love, and placing You as my first priority.

I rebuke evil, pride, arrogance, infidelity, and other sinful ways. When I face these things Father, warm my heart but turn my body away–that I may lovingly walk away. In Jesus’ name I pray to You. Amen.

Reflection
You have choices in life. You can choose to do right or wrong; cheat on your significant other or be faithful for as long as you remain together; be abusive or be loving; be controlling or supportive; pursue a person who is in a relationship or find someone who is single and available; curse at someone or choose other words to express your disappointment or anger; lash out in anger or walk away in love; be prideful and suffer, or open and receptive; steal things or earn what we want; gossip or refrain from such chatter; be arrogant or give glory to God for all that we have…we all have a choice.

No one and nothing is forcing us to make a decision in life. We choose the words and actions we engage in each day. You can’t get away with the excuse, “the devil made me do it” because although you are always under constant attack by “it”, the decisions you make are solely yours, as are the repercussions. So what choices will you make today?

Love,

Natasha
