thought for the day

Heb 9 & prayer from Heidleberg Catechism

How much more, then, will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself unblemished to God, cleanse our consiences from acts that lead to death, so that we may serve the living God,

Ascended Jesus, I often move through my days with a guilty conscience, an accusing voice that tells me of the evil I have done, or the good I have failed to do. Cleanse my consience by your shed blood, and strengthen me to serve the living God.

My days are more like the prayer than the truth of the words in Hebrews. The lies and the knock downs take priority over God’s word and His truth. Sometimes ouf of despair, other times out of misplaced humility and pride. Lord help me base my days on Your word and may my mind be renewed with Your truth and perspective that I may serve You, the living God, all of my days.
