Lay low

That I may live only for Your Kingdom purposes.
Come Holy Spirit. The Kingdom is Yours. The power is yours. The glory belongs to you!

Lay low with Jesus. He is the only One who can light up your day, and the path before you. Break the cycle of selfishness, through encountering the Holy Spirit. the presence of God, brings us to our faces, where we invest in the lives of others because Jesus loves them that much. When you get low with Jesus , He makes your vision clear. 

Phil 2:3-4 (NLT) 3 Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. 4 Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too.

God today, I lay down any selfish motives that cause me to please man. I step out in faith today, that I may love more. Especially You! My family and those I cross paths with every day. I decide to lay low at the feet of Jesus so I may stand firmly and know where I am going. I desperately need Your help God, Amen.

I woke up early today, and began to feel the presence of the Lord. I prayed early before my kids and wife woke up, and began to cover them and the day in prayer. As I sought the Lord, i felt Him breaking off of me, my old ways of thinking with His desire to love. 

So today i encourage you, to walk with God, lay low and love lavishly.

God bless you and your family today,
