Colossians 3: 17 Whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.
I have a sweet tooth (doesn’t everyone?) and like many of you, my downfall is chocolate. The darker the better! I keep telling myself that it’s good for me, these antioxidant you know. But as the saying goes, “what enters through the lips, lands on the hips.” Well, the older I get the more direct route! I think it’s gone from a narrow, winding road into a straight superhighway. Something had to be done.
One day it hit me “Why don’t I pray for help on controlling my cravings?” Yes, I said pray. I know, I know! I can hear some of you protesting, “Why bother God about such a small problem? He is too busy with important things; the big problems of the world.”
Well, Colossians 3:17 says “do all in the name of the Lord Jesus.” It doesn’t limit us to seeking Him about big concerns. Everything we do is to be done in His name. Granted, I still struggle, but I’m not doing it alone.
So, why do you struggling with today? Take a moment right now, and pray. Ask Jesus for help and guidance. Then trust it will come. It doesn’t matter how small you think it is Jesus wants you to let Him carry the burden.
Until next time, God Bless You.
