In scripture it says “He makes me lie down in green pastures” (Psalm 23: 2). Today as you rejoice and are glad of your small victories, consider them in green pastures as a landmark location to come to whenever you are gloomy. You can be asked, “what are you doing?” and you can respond, “I’m lying down in green pastures created by my heavenly father”. Your house, your car, your body can all be in green pastures. We can be thankful of psalm 23 today.
Pray without ceasing, 1 Thessalonians 5:17. I know it can be a challenge to pray continuously for long periods of time. God is not looking at the length of prayer but the condition of the heart. Someone once told me I have a big heart. I took that as a complement. You know when your heart is not proper and you are not thinking properly, prayer can be an opportunity to clean it up in conversation with your father in heaven. You can come out of there different from the way you came in. Don’t forget that the things that matter in this life are your footprints on this earth, so, pray always and watch the condition of your heart.
