'A PERFECT DAY'
S. Romans 12:1-2 (MSG) So here's what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him...fix your attention on God.
O. When we give our 'everyday life' and our 'usual daily routine' to God,...trusting Him, listening to Him, obeying Him,...it is an 'offering' to God or 'something offered or presented in divine service, as an expression of gratitude or thanks, to procure some favor or benefit' (dictionary), He turns it into His perfect will...which is His BEST for us!
A. Everyday, each and every morning, I need to fix my ear to Holy Spirit's lips, turn my attention to what He has planned for my day, taking action on His plan FIRST...giving all my time to what He has planned. When I do this...my day will be in His perfect will...A PERFECT DAY!
P It shouldn't be a sacrifice to give You my day, Father...it should be MY routine! Take every one of my days, Father, all my time, energy, thoughts and actions...and make them YOURS...they are anyway! You gave them to me first...now I give them back to YOU!
