Learning to Experience God Every Day

Reading for the day: Romans 12: 9-21

“Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them. Hate what is wrong. Hold tightly to what is good. 10 Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring each other. 11 Never be lazy, but work hard and serve the Lord enthusiastically.12 Rejoice in our confident hope. Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying.”

Our lives are so chaotic at times. If it is not our activities that are running us around it is our family. Sometimes, you have to stop and smell the roses to appreciate why you are alive. It’s not to run ourselves ragged everyday for sure.

Being busy with tasks, even godly ones, can make us too busy for God. God, where were you when I was caught in traffic or struggling to make dinner after a hectic day? Does that sound like you? God was waiting for you to slow down so He could spend time with you.

The above scriptures are only three of the thirteen mentioned in the daily reading. The idea here is ways to imitate Christ in your life. Just the first few verses sounds like a lot to do. You are used to doing a lot but this task list won’t make you tired but aware of God’s goodness all around you.

Try it. When you serve God on your job or thank Him that you have a tank of gas in traffic or bless Him for the bounty of food in your home, you gain a new perspective on the day. God thought enough of you to make you aware of His love at every turn.

Prayer Suggestion: Make a conscious effort to thank God throughout the day for the evidence of Him in your life.
