Seeking God’s Praises!
John 12:43 Amplified Bible (AMP)
43 for they loved the approval of men more than the approval of God.”
Oh dear, I am just like many other people, I am constantly looking for the praises and approval of my friends and family. You know “well done” or “what a good job.” The sad story here is that I should be seeking God’s approval and not that of people.
How will I receive God’s praises and approval for my own life? By seeking God diligently and obeying His instruction. By doing what I know is good and that will be pleasing to God. I know that I need to draw near to Him each and every day. I do this all the time. I want to be pleasing to God.
Something I realise is that I should stop fighting with people who irritate me, I am learning to control my temper but it is a long process. I find that people bait me and before I realise it I am angry at them. I pray each and every day God place a guard over my lips so that I will watch myself. I also believe my attitude needs work and I bring this to God each and every day.
Lord, humbly I pray for wisdom. I am someone that wants to be praised, it seems to be my carnal self-pushing for this praise. Today I humbly pray Lord, help me to stay obedient to You, let me draw near and grow spiritually. I pray place a guard over my mouth and thoughts. I love and adore You, in Jesus Christ's name. Amen
