Day 23: Meekness
Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.
[OR You’re blessed when you’re content with just who you are—no more, no less. That’s the moment you find yourselves proud owners of everything that can’t be bought.] Matthew 5:5
Father, I pray that you would draw me into meekness. I pray that you would soften my heart towards those around me. Help me to be gentle, patient and kind. Show me how to abide in your love today. To be content and confident in who you made me to be. I pray that you would open my heart to extend the love and grace you have shown me to others. Guard my words, that they would be life-giving, building others up and glorifying you. I am so grateful for your faithfulness in my life. I lay down my will, my plan, and my desires for today. Make me more like you Jesus. In your holy and precious name, Amen.
How will Jesus show up in my day today?
Do I have the eyes and ears to see and hear the wonders of his love and mercy?
How will I experience his grace? Will I see something miraculous? Something hope-filled that will transform me?
