“For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ” (2 Peter 1:8).
When we are called by grace in faith to walk with the Lord, we enter onto a journey with Him. Every journey begins somewhere and ends somewhere. We may not know what we are going to be, but we do know that we are being conformed to the image of Christ. Therefore, willingly take the steps you can in order to be conformed to Christ. Seek the better qualities, of which the greatest is love, knowing that He will bring forth all that is necessary to accomplish this.
Lord, there are so many times when I believe that I cannot. You must take the lead and guide me in the way of everlasting life. I have walked many steps, but there are so many times when You must carry me. Help me, Lord, to understand that only in You is there hope and a future. Help me to be effective in my faith as I grow in the knowledge of the faith You have given me. Increase in me the good qualities of Your presence.
Thank You Lord Jesus for being the Savior. Save me today. Save me from the doubts and the foolish thoughts that come into my mind. Lead me to humbly walk step by step in the way I should go. Lead me according to Your promises to walk humbly, but boldly in the goodness of Your grace and mercy. Teach me the things I need to know to hold fast and stay strong in faith. Amen.
