Have you ever chosen a word for the year? Sometimes I ask the Lord for a specific focus, a word that will shape my Bible readings for the year, a specific treasure to seek. I have chosen words like “praise” and “serve.” Last year my word was “seriously,” from this verse:
But he’s already made it plain how to live, what to do, what God is looking for in men and women. It’s quite simple: Do what is fair and just to your neighbor, be compassionate and loyal in your love, and don’t take yourself too seriously— take God seriously. (Micah 6:8 Message)
Read Psalm 119:57-112 (links to this week’s scriptures here). Keep looking for prayers of commitment to God’s Word.
Comfort me so I can live, really live!
Your revelation is the tune I dance to. (Psalm 119:77 Message)
Lord, help me to really live this year, tuned to your promises.
