{ Day 88 }

Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual act of worship.

Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. —Romans 12:1-2

My son, do not make light of the Lord's discipline, and do not lose heart when he rebukes you, because the Lord disciplines those he loves, and he punishes everyone he accepts as a son.

If you are not disciplined (and everyone undergoes discipline), then you are illegitimate children and not true sons. —Hebrews 12:5-8

On my bed night after night I sought him whom my soul loves; I sought him but did not find him. I must arise now and go about the city; in the streets and in the squares I must seek him whom my soul loves. I sought him but did not find him. The watchmen who make the rounds in the city found me, and I said, "Have you seen him whom my soul loves?" —Song of Solomon 3:1-3, NAS

Finished for the Devil

Whom Do You Seek?

Where Is Your Heart?

Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For everything in the world—the cravings of sinful man, the lust of his eyes and the boasting of what he has and does—comes not from the Father but from the world. —1 John 2:15-16

{ Day 82 }

The voice of my beloved! Behold, he comes leaping upon the mountains, skipping upon the hills. —Song of Solomon 2:8, NKJV
