Day 5 devotional reading:
Have you ever prayed anything along these lines: “Father, let my light shine before people in such a way that they may see my good works and glorify you”?
I don’t hear prayers like that very often. Our prayers hover close to our personal visions and dreams. All too often we focus our prayer energies on trying to get God to bless something, change somebody, or grant us success with a project. Yet he is far more interested in the consistency of our light in environments where light is not appreciated. All our projects, dreams, and visions are merely potential opportunities for the Father to draw attention and people to himself.
