The app recommends you:
- Pray: God, connect with me here, as I seek you in your Word. Begin with focus and openness to see what God has for you.
- Read: the selected section of Scripture slowly. Take note of intriguing words and phrases and read them a second time.
- Reflect: on what strikes you as you read. Think through what God is communicating to you at this point in your life.
- Respond: to the passage. Speak to God directly about what's on your mind and heart. Look for ways to live out what you've uncovered.
PRAY, PRAY, PRAY! This is the word that stand out to me. In all things pray and with thanksgiving! I also remember a wonderful girl sharing how her older sister used this verse to teach her to hold thoughts captive by asking:
- Is it true?
- Is it pure?
- Is it lovely?
- Is it of good report?
Now it is time to apply these truths to my life. They are easy for me to read, but I need them to penetrate my heart!
