Always busy and on the move? Slow down and take a moment to meditate on the Word of God. Start your day off with God before getting too busy, rushing from one event or meeting after another. God desires to speak to you: He wants you to know Him better and truly discover who you really are in Him. Jesus prayed to the heavenly Father not to take us out of this world, but that He would keep and protect us from the evil one. Jesus also asked the Father to sanctify us, and the only way we can be truly sanctified is in the Word. "Sanctify them purify, consecrate, separate them for Yourself, make them holy] by the Truth; Your Word is Truth." (John 17:17) So be encouraged to start your day with God, discover the truth of God's Word for yourself, and learn more about yourself and your daily assignment in the Lord. Anthony R.
