(Isaiah 58:7)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Father, please help me to be more like Jesus each day. Help me to be kind to others, to care about others, to share the hope of the Gospel with others. I love Jesus and my greatest desire is to be more like my Savior each day. In the name of Jesus I pray…AMEN!!!

***THE DAILY LIVEPRAYER TV NUGGET: Senicide is a word you better get used to hearing. As I have been warning for 20 years and spoke about in my 2-part Daily Devotional in January about what to expect in 2020, as the months of this year unfold you will see the mainstreaming and normalizing of killing older people. This is not hyperbole or paranoia, this is already happening in a few states NOW as I type these words. This is another issue I have been warning people about to take a stand on BEFORE it is too late. Once these states start coming on board with legislation legalizing euthanasia, doctor assisted suicide, stopping “senicide” will be too late. B! e praying about
this issue, reach out to your state lawmakers, this is a move happening very quietly in statehouses across the nation…TODAY!!!

We often get so caught up in living of our lives day to day that it is easy to forget why God has given us this wonderful gift of life. It is to serve and glorify Him. That is the bottom line of why we are here. Unfortunately, we can get far, far away from that purpose during the course of our years here on earth. Obviously, one of the enemy’s goals is to keep us distracted so that we cannot fulfill that God-given purpose.

Once a person comes to know Christ by faith, the enemy has lost the battle for that person’s soul. However, the battle then centers around mak! ing us as ineffective
as possible in serving God in our daily lives. The more he can keep us distracted with the burdens of life, the less effective we are in our service to God.

This passage of scripture in Isaiah helps us to focus on what this life is really all about. It is not about seeing how much wealth we can accumulate in this life, or how much power we can acquire, or how well-known we can become. All of the things the world judges us by are absolutely meaningless when this brief journey is over.

It is the wood, hay, and stubble the Bible talks about that will burn up when tested by fire (1 Corinthians 3:12-15). The gold, silver, and precious stones are those things we do in this life that stand the test of eternity. It is our true service to our Lord.

If you want a starting point of how to please God, what kinds of things we can do in our life to follow our Lord and have an eternal legacy, get your Bible out and read verse 7 in the 58th chapter of Isaiah. This is what ! our life
really is all about. Being there for those in need. Helping those who are lost in this life. Sharing the love and hope of Jesus Christ with those we meet along our journey.

One of the questions I get every day is how to be in the will of God. There are so many passages in the Word of God that help us know what we can do in our life to be in the will of God. This verse in Isaiah is a great place to start.

I love you and care about you so much. I will be praying with you today that the Lord helps you to realize no matter what problems you are facing, no matter how many obstacles there might be this very moment, there are always others who are in worse shape, always others who are struggling even more than you are. We have a responsibility to be an ambassador for Christ in our daily lives. This is how we fulfill our purpose in life.

My challenge to you today is to be aware that there is an enemy out there who will try everything possible to distract you from f! ulfilling
your God-given purpose. Be aware of this trap. Rise above it no matter what you may be dealing with and find ways each day to share the hope and love of Christ with someone.

God did not place people in your life, in your path each day by accident. It is your opportunity to serve Him, and lay up treasures in heaven for eternity as opposed to focusing on the treasures of this life that will all one day pass away. The goal of every child of God should be to please HIM, and let God use our lives to make a difference for HIS Kingdom!

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

Bill Keller
