“Wake up, and strengthen the things that remain, which were about to die; for I have not found your deeds completed in the sight of My God” (Revelation 3:2).

Do not settle.  Do not think more highly of yourself than you ought.  Be led by the Holy Spirit and not by the spirit of this age.  The Lord has a reason for everything.  It is not that you have an assignment to complete, as some may think.  It is that the Lord is perfecting us and you and I need to be on His time-table.  Do not let the life He has poured into you die.  Do not stop walking the path He has set before you.

Lord, I do not know, but it seems as though many just go through the motions and stop actually progressing.  I know I sometimes do this.  This life is filled with multiple lessons.  Our culture  has become lazy.  Make enough, retire, and have fun.  But living is living in You, the Giver of life.  Help me to realize this so that I continue on the path You have placed before me.  Guide me in Your goodness, grace, and mercy to do these things.

Lord Jesus, You make possible my ability to walk the path You have set before me.  Guide me by Your grace to, step by step, walk the journey You know I must walk, doing what You give me to do even if that means being still and waiting upon You.  Do not let the life You have poured into me die.  I know You are at work in me.  Let me work through my salvation with fear and trembling knowing that You will not stop until I am complete.  Amen.
