Hear, O my people, and I will warn you–if you would but listen to me, O Israel! You shall have no foreign god among you; you shall not bow down to an alien god. I am the LORD your God, who brought you up out of Egypt. Open wide your mouth, and I will fill it. “But my people would not listen to me; Israel would not submit to me. So I gave them over to their stubborn hearts to follow their own devices. (Psa 81:8-12 NIV)
Prayer: LORD, help me to be aware when stubbornness or willfulness gains a stronghold in my life. I want never to allow anything to come between us or limit what You desire to do in my life. Your heart is to give me Your best. I want to be able to receive it. Do whatever You need to do in me to make it so. Thank You for unconditional love and Your great patience as I mature in You and learn to believe and trust Your heart for me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
