Good morning, Family:
I greet you, All, with the amazing, unchanging, neverending love of God.
I want to jump right into today’s devotional. Ready??!!
As a bible-based Life Coach, minister, premarital counselor, and fellow child of God, I get asked my advice and recommendations fairly often and on a variety of topics.
People come to me who are embarking on new life journeys and changes. It is so important that I am grounded in the Lord, before I give advice, tools, or recommendations to anyone.
It is imperative that I never counsel anyone from a broken place inside of me. For that reason, I always pray for the person’s highest good, according to God’s will.
Here is the problem, if I dont pray for God’s highest good. The result could be that I project my hurts, fears, and/or past traumatic events onto a person. That is not fair to them, me or God.
I pray that when someone comes to you for advice, or prayer, that you would put yourself aside and allow God to step forward. This action also removes any reason for you to boast or take credit for what God has done through you.
Meditate on today’s devotional and humbly ask God to search your heart. Pray for God’s highest good for YOUR LIFE as well. I can’t wait to get testimonies of how God moved in your life.
English Standard Version (ESV)
34 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.
May the peace of the Lord be with you always. Go and share the Lord’s peace, with everyone you meet.
In His amazing love,
Rev. Marcia Davis
