“Therefore, beloved, since you look for these things, be diligent to be found by Him in peace, spotless and blameless” (2 Peter 3:14)

Every person has work they can do.  None of us is without something to do.  The world would have you be busy with distractions.  The Lord gives you the opportunity to grow in Him.  Which direction will you go?  As Peter instructs us, be diligent to be found in Him.  Be diligent and seek to obey all that He has commanded.  Seek what will be yours in eternity and become spotless and blameless.

Lord, You know the obstacles that get in the way.  Guide me according to Your goodness and mercy to live into the life which You have for me.  You know where I do not live according to Your word.  You know where I seek other things instead of  what You have given me to seek.  Lead me, O Lord, to love and live in accordance with the Father’s will.  Help me to be at peace.

Lord Jesus, I need the grace You purchased for me from the cross.  Guide me to live into the life You have set before me.  Guide me in Your goodness to know that only in You is there hope.  Keep me close to You so that I may live a life that is befitting the grace You have given me.  Help me now and always as I journey along this path toward becoming like You.  Amen.
