A Daily Devotion for Thursday, June 10
Joshua 24: 14-15
”Now fear the Lord and serve him with all faithfulness. Throw away the gods your forefathers worshiped beyond the River and in Egypt, and serve the Lord. But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your forefathers served beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.“
It is so easy to lose track of priorities. Serving other “gods” may on the surface seem like a ridiculous non-issue. But when I think about how often I elevate my worldly concerns to levels of great importance, I realize I am serving other masters. This is a particularly important lesson for me right now. I would be more at peace, and more content with life if I could consistently keep my eyes and heart on the Lord.
Heavenly Father, you are here for me, always. You have sent your Holy Spirit to live in my heart. Help me to turn to you whenever I have a decision to make, whenever I am struggling, whenever I am tired or overwhelmed. There are no other gods for me. I will follow you, Amen
