"What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me—practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you."
What have you learned since you became a follower of Christ? What have you received since you became a follower of Christ? What have you heard from the Word and from God? What have you seen Jesus do in your life and in others around you?
Lift up your eyes to the examples of faith in practice by godly believers now and throughout history. Practice these things every single day, over and over. Be perfected by them. Let them have their perfect work in your life. Take time today to think about all the things that God has put into you, into your heart, and into your life. Thank Him for them and continue to walk in them with Him.
"Father, thank you for my salvation. Thank you for choosing me as your own. Show me today all the things you've placed in my life and show me all the ways you are living and active in my heart. Show me the areas that I need help in and give me the courage to ask for your help."
"Father, your heart is that all would come to know and have a relationship with You. Open the eyes of the Tai Lue in Laos to your love today. Open their eyes to your truth and remove the blinding of Buddhism in their lives. Bring Your children, who are imitators of Jesus, to share the love of the Father with the Tai Lue in Laos. Thank you in advance for the salvation of the Tai Lue in Laos and that we will worship You in Heaven alongside them."
