As we consider yesterday’s devotional about pests, it seemed to me that we need a plan to deal with our personal pests. First of all:
- Ask Jesus what he wants you to change. Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.(Jeremiah 33:3, NIV)
- Ask Jesus to help you make a plan to destroy your pest. “For I know the plans I have for you” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11, NIV)
- Be accountable to someone. Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up.(Ecclesiastes 4:9, NIV)
- Trust Jesus to help you succeed. I can do all this through him who gives me strength. (Philippians 4:13, KJV)
Now you have a clear plan for success. Every day write down what you learned and gradually over time you will destroy those pests that keep you from Jesus.
Prayer- Lord, thank you for a clear of plan of success so that I am able to deal with those pests that destroy my life in you. Give me strength I pray. Amen.
