Then Jesus asked them, “When I sent you out to preach the Good News and you did not have money, a traveler’s bag, or extra clothing, did you lack anything?” “No,” they replied. “But now,” he said, “take your money and a traveler’s bag. And if you don’t have a sword, sell your clothes and buy one! (Luke 22:35-36 NLT)
Prayer: LORD, the way things have been is not necessarily the way they will be and the way I have done things in the past may not be the way I will do them in the future. As I face changes in my life, help me understand Your directives and follow them explicitly. Give me greater faith, strength, and courage to go anywhere, anytime, and do anything any way without hesitation or reservation—as long as I know the direction is from You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
