How To Live Each Day

May you and I live each and every day...

With God's Presence.  Let's invite Him to be a part of our mornings, afternoons, and evenings.  May we be mindful of, and moved by, His loving, intimate presence.  We can talk to Him through prayer, hear from Him through scripture, and bond with Him through worship.  His unending companionship is available to us all day, every day; therefore, let's bask in His company and enjoy it.  

Under God's Protection.  It is a dangerous time and world that we live in.  But here is the good news:  God is a shelter to His children.  Nobody can snatch us out of His hand.  As we start out each day, let's ask Him through prayer to be our shield and defender physically, emotionally, and spiritually.  Since safety is found in the Lord, let's stay close to Him. 

In God's Peace.  He is the calm in the midst of life's storms.  With all of life's stresses and strains, we need His serenity to fill our hearts, minds, and souls.  Our request every day ought to be for Him to keep us comforted and at ease.  No more living like a wound up bundle of nerves!  Instead, let's live in assurance that He is in control and all will be well.

Through God's Power.  Challenges and trials face us all.  Life is not easy.  But God has unlimited strength.  Nothing is impossible or too difficult for Him.  So when we connect with Him, His potency infuses us, and we are empowered for daily living.  He makes us strong when we allow Him.  Let's allow God to enable us to live in victory.

By God's Provision.  Each of us has needs, and God is The One who can meet them.  He owns all things.  Also, He is incredibly generous.  So we would be wise to ask Him to come through for us and provide for us in every way.  Time after time over the centuries, God has given men, women, boys, and girls what they need.  And He still does the same today.  So let's ask Him daily to bless us and help us where we are lacking.

How should we spend each day?  In God's presence, protection, peace, power, and provision.  There's no better way to live than that.
