Then the word of the LORD Almighty came to me: “Ask all the people of the land and the priests, ‘When you fasted and mourned in the fifth and seventh months for the past seventy years, was it really for me that you fasted? And when you were eating and drinking, were you not just feasting for yourselves? (Zec 7:4-6 NIV)
Prayer: LORD, sometimes I think I am doing things for You when I am really only doing them for myself or to meet others’ expectations. Expose my misunderstanding and self-deception. Help me to be aware of my true motives. When I discover that I am doing something for the wrong reason, give me the courage to correct it. I want to submit everything to You. Help me to make it so. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
