Sometimes we don't do what we know we should. Maybe we've let our prayer life lapse, or we've become a bit lazy in other areas of our life. Perhaps this will help. I was reading Chapter 11 of Hebrews this morning and some of the passages inspired me to try just a little bit harder . . .
If you start with verse 32, you'll find a list of some of the things the faithful before us have done. When you read:
"Others endured mockery, scourging, even chains and imprisonment. They were stoned sawed in two, put to death at sword point; they went about in skins of sheep or goats, needy, afflicted, tormented. . . .They wandered about in deserts and on mountains, in caves and in crevices in the earth" . . .
you have to ask yourself, Is it too much for me to spend a little time in prayer? Is God asking way too much of me when He asks me to meditate on His Holy Word for a short time each day?
It really calls you up, doesn't it, on your depth of commitment to the Lord?
Spend some time today considering if you have truly given to God all that you can.
