PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• It’s 19 degrees again this morning, but I take comfort that spring is 48 days away.
I am more than a little bit ready for some warmer weather because it’s very tempting to call in cold to work when the temperatures are this low.
My prayers are with those who are truly being hit by extreme lows…
I can’t even imagine.
I could not shake the chill yesterday with our “mild” version of this winter weather and kept a space heater at my desk all day.
The words of 1 Corinthians 10:31 are on my mind this morning.
The verse says, “So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.”
I love this reminder.
It is further evidence that God cares about everything we say, think, and do.
Otherwise, we wouldn’t be told to do it all for His glory!
It’s confirmation that there’s nothing too big or too small or outside God’s scope of interest in our lives.
Because when we are committed to doing everything for His glory, we can trust that He will be pleased and use us to His purpose.
Let that stay with you today.
Whether you’re crunching numbers on a spreadsheet, teaching a class, baking bread, sweeping a floor, or anything you do…
Do it to honor and glorify Him.
Praise Him as you work — for the abilities and opportunities He’s given you, the chance to earn a paycheck, the warmth of the oven, or any number of countless reasons to praise Him and glorify Him throughout the day.
Today, as you pray, thank God for being interested in every detail.
Ask the Holy Spirit to help you find joy in both the great and small parts of your day.
Ask Him to remind your heart often that it’s all for Him.
