This week I want to focus on incorporating more of God into our everyday lives. There is a spiritual battle we are fighting constantly, and God has equipped us for it!
Idea 1. Memorize scripture. Memorizing scripture is a very important practice and it reminds us of biblical truths in times when we need it. Start with James 4:7 which says “submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you”. Try to memorize this verse today!
Idea 2. Listen to Psalm 27. Psalm 27 is a Psalm of hope that reminds us that we are waiting for the Lord. The streetlights podcast has some books of the Bible available on audio and listening to the Bible can cause us to engage it differently than reading it. So engage the Bible differently today!
Idea 3. Read Matthew 6:1-6 in the message version. The message version of the Bible is written by Eugene Peterson and uses contemporary language. This passage shows us Jesus’s heart for why we spend time with God and how that should look, learn from this passage.
Idea 4. Start a morning routine with God. Spending time with God in the morning is a great way to set your mind on him before your day starts. Pray to him, sing to him, read scripture about mornings; Psalm 143:8, Isaiah 33:2, Lamentations 3:22-23.
Idea 5. Start a nightly routine with God. Before going to bed let God be the last thing that has your attention. Don’t touch your phone for 30 minutes before going to bed, submit your day to God, and pray to Him on your knees.
