What motivates you?
Why do you get up and do what you do each day?
Whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. 1 Corinthians 10:31
I don’t know about you, but I fall short of that goal every single day.
So today, I’m praying and asking…
God, Please Help Me Live for Your Glory Every Day
Father, It’s so easy to get distracted by things that sparkle. I can so easily find myself motivated by profits and possessions, status and recognition, and countless other things that have little lasting value.
I am so very sorry. Please forgive me.
And by the power of Your Spirit … help me live for Your glory not my own.
Because You created me for Your glory. (based on Isaiah 43:7)
Because everything in heaven and on earth belong to You. (based on Romans 11:36)
Because of Your overwhelming love and faithfulness. (based on Psalm 115:1, 1 John 4:19)
Because You have fulfilled all of Your promises through Jesus. (based on 2 Corinthians 1:20)
Because You alone are worthy. (based on Revelation 4:11)
Let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven. Matthew 5:16 (ESV)
If you love Me, obey my commandments. (John 14:15)
And Father, Jesus said that all Your commands can be summed up in one word – LOVE!
Love for You. Love for others. Love for the “least of these.”
Please help me love.
Please help me live for Your glory.
So, in the ways…
I love my family.
I do my job.
I greet strangers.
I help those in need.
I budget my money.
I use my gifts and abilities.
I manage my time.
May I do it all for Your glory. I want people to see You in me. I pray that people will want to know You because they see You in me.
Your creation lives for Your glory by doing what You created it to do.
The sun by lighting the sky.
The moon by reflecting the sun.
Trees, flowers, and animals … all glorify You by doing what You created them to do.
By Your grace, I will too…
May the constant prayer of my heart always be, “Not to us, O Lord, not to us, but to your name goes all the glory for your unfailing love and faithfulness.” (Psalm 115:1)
Because … Your unfailing love is better than life itself. (Psalm 63:3)
I will praise You.
I will live for your glory!
And with Your Spirit’s help, I will trust Your will for me.
I will be motivated by love … by Your love.
In Jesus name, I pray. Amen.
I am so blessed that you are joining me for this journey…
