Back in 2003 after having spent the year before reading Sarah Ban Breathnach's book "Simple Abundance" I took her suggestion to heart and wrote my own daily devotional. Each day I took a line or two from one of the various spiritual authors from the last three centuries I was reading and wrote my own thoughts on the subject. I then looked for a scripture that illustrated the truth that had been revealed to me. What follows is the result.

"Our greatest bondage is to have our own way; our greatest freedom is to let God have His way." Warren Wiersbe

January 31

“(Jesus) wants to give rest to everyone in the world.  But the way to enter into that rest is by the way of meekness.  The really meek person does not have to be proven right.  He is willing to be made right.”  Eugenia Price, S.P.S., 1/31

Oh, to BE right.  Isn’t that the goal of every person’s flesh?  The lengths we will go to have that proven is what’s wrong with our world I dare say.  What is so glorious about the Good News is that we are MADE right, and we don’t have to lift a finger to prove it!   I really don’t have to say anymore about freedom in Christ for I’m sure anybody reading this knows what I’m talking about.  And if not, I know the wheels have started to turn because your appetite for this “rightness” has been whetted by God and He won’t leave you until you have it.

“And I am sure that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.”  Philippians 1:6
