Every man wants to be the man, but we must not forget—we’re not. This truth is challenging for us to embrace. At times sheer power will try to persuade you to believe in the might of your ingenuity, effort, or capabilities. And when we do this, we “forget.” Your identity is that of a “son.” And thus, as a follower, you’ll always be a child first—not “the man.” But where do you “keep this teaching?" Not only with your mental facilities but within your “heart.” It’s deep within you that you must “keep the commandments” of your Father.
“My son, do not forget my teaching, but let your heart keep my commandments.”—Proverbs 3:1
DO THIS: Keep his commandments in your heart.
PRAYER: God, help me to be strong enough to trust in you and extend faith to you as my loving father who wants the best for me.
