Today's Scripture Reading: 1 Timothy Chapter 4
The Holy Spirit really spoke me today through the words of Paul to Timothy. In verses 7-9 Paul tells Timothy to "Train yourself for devotion, for, while physical training is of limited value, devotion is valuable in every respect, since it holds a promise of life both for the present and the future. This saying is trustworthy and deserves full acceptance.
Training for devotion. I have felt so guilty at times because I didn't feel devoted enough. Now I know that I have to train myself for devotion. These words are trustworthy and deserves full acceptance. Oh, how I draw these words into my heart and soul. My Lord, Jesus, I devote myself to you and I pray you will train me how to devote myself even more fully to you. I give you myself, my Jesus. Oh, how I love you. You are my all; you are my everything. In you I live, breath, and have my being. Through my training for devotion I will be actively praying while teaching my soul to passively pray as well. I will pray without ceasing as you have commanded. I love you my precious Jesus!
