“Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’” (Matthew 7:22)

Many do not see the Lord or think of him as someone real.  To them, He is just an idea.  People like this go through the motions, but they are so into themselves that they cannot see anyone but themselves.  They are not your friend either.  Sadly, too few die to self, take Jesus’ hand, and walk with Him.  It is not about performing miracles but walking with the Lord that matters.  Walk with the Lord.

Lord, there are times when all I can do is fake it.  Help me to come into a place of intentionality where I first engage with You and then I engage with my neighbor.  Help me to see that this is not some action, but a life that is to be lived in relationship.  Let Your truth permeate who I am and what I do.  Lord, You call for us all to be genuine and true to You and one another.

The hardest person for us to be truthful with is ourselves.  Lord Jesus, You are the truth and You have come to reveal all truth.  Open my heart.  I am afraid and I do not want to see the truth but open it up so that I can live in reality.  Help me to relate with You and others in truth.  Guide me in Your goodness so that I may humbly walk with You all the days of my life.  Be the One who leads me, Lord.  Amen.
