What do you desire? Your desires, your devotion or lack of devotion to the Lord, have enormous impact for you and for those around you. Your life choices matter. They matter to the Lord, and they matter in terms of your influence on your family, friends and co-workers. Where have you been tempted to serve someone other than the Lord with your life? How can you fan the flame of desire for serving Him today?
But if serving the LORD seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD.—Joshua 24:15
Prayer: Lord, Joshua’s words to the Israelites prompt me to search my heart. You have done so much for me. You have rescued me, redeemed me, and brought me into Your kingdom. Rekindle my desire to serve You today, and let my example inspire others to serve You as well. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
