Episode 271

TODAY’S READING:

Prove me, O Lord, and try me; test my heart and my mind.

Psalm 26:2

 

Every once in a while, it is a good idea to do a quick assessment of your motives and your heart. It’s a good idea to ask yourself, why do you do the things you do.

 

What is causing you to speak that way? Behave that way.

 

Are you after the Lord’s heart? Or are you after selfish gain?

 

This Psalm is a cry out to the Lord for help. I understand this cry; there have been many times in my life where I have simply cried out and asked the Lord to test me. Am I doing things for the right reason? Does He really have me here? Or did I bust open a door I wasn’t supposed to?

 

These questions ground me. They help me recenter to Him. They are necessary.

 

Ask Him to test your heart and your mind. If you are reluctant to do so, there might be something you are avoiding. 

 

PRAYER

Father God, thank you for a relationship with you that allows us to have these open conversations with you. Thank you for answering our prayers when we ask you to test our hearts and minds. Thank you for making us better each day. We ask that you bless the week ahead of us. It is with everything that we pray, AMEN!

Hi, I'm Ali.
I want to encourage you on your faith journey!

I'm the coffee obsessed baker from Miami, FL who got too busy to find time to read scripture everyday. I knew my life was better with Jesus and I knew I wasn't the only one struggling with finding alone time with God every morning, so I put my dreams of opening a bakery aside and set out to produce a five minute daily devotional. What first started as an email chain, has now flourished into a beautiful community and I am so happy you are here!

MY TESTIMONY

We are a faith based community in pursuit of daily prayer. All it takes is five minutes - we know you're busy but He loves you still.
