Devotion to Jesus

Leave a comment

March 26, 2007 by Isaac Hovet

This morning I arose early and realized that I have not had a sweet
time with Jesus for a couple of weeks. Sure, I have read my bible…I
have prayed (feebly)…and I have tried to live him out around me.

But,
this morning…I need Jesus. I need him to be with my today. I need
the power of the Holy Spirit. I need the love and grace of the Lord
again today. I see the sickness of my own heart. I see the nature of
me without Jesus. I see how self-absorbed and inefficient I am.

Holy
Spirit – move in me now. Make me new. Please help me to be the man of
God that you have called me to. Give me strength to accomplish all
that you have called me to, bit more than that…give me a new sense of
passion to be more and more holy. More and more set a part.

I
am currently reading in the book of Numbers. I have just read about
the rebellion of Korah – and how God dealt with their rebellion. He
violently reacted to it:

31 He had hardly finished speaking the words when the ground suddenly split open beneath them. 32 The
earth opened its mouth and swallowed the men, along with their
households and all their followers who were standing with them, and
everything they owned.
33 So they
went down alive into the grave, along with all their belongings. The
earth closed over them, and they all vanished from among the people of
Israel.
34 All the people around them fled when they heard their screams

Within
a culture of young people who are setting out to change the world, I
see the seeds of rebellion. Many times in our (young people wanting to
serve the Lord) desire to do better, we forget the wisdom of our
elders. And greater – we forget the assignment of the Lord…they have
been placed in leadership – and it is God who places all leaders.

Jesus…I
now renew my commitment to following the leaders that you place in my
life. I renew my commitment to seeing you active in my heart and soul.

Be with me today.
