May you find one day of rest this week. Take some time for Him today, draw closer to Him, and if you want, focus on today’s two scriptures.
Scripture To Meditate On– (NIV) 1 Peter 1:22, “Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for each other, love one another deeply, from the heart.”
How To Meditate On This Scripture– When we follow Jesus and we obey what He wants us to do, we are purified through His holiness and following the holy way. This will allow us to have a sincere love because the love of Christ is also holy. But if we do not follow what is Christlike, we will not be purified, and we will not have a sincere love. Making it harder to love others and show the love of Christ.
Scripture To Pray Over– (NIV) Luke 6:32, “If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners love those who love them.”
How To Pray On This Scripture– “Dear, Lord, please guide my heart and open up my eyes. May I love others with a compassion full of Your grace and mercy. Help me reach out and love those who want nothing to do with me. Those who do not understand me. Lord, Jesus, please help me shine Your light even when others hurt me, and it is hard to be humble and forgive. Help me love the unlovable, just like You love now.”

Monthly Scripture- (NIV) Psalms 62:01-02, 05, “Truly my soul finds rest in God; my salvation comes from Him. Truly He is my rock and my salvation; He is my fortress, I will never be shaken. Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from Him.”
