A Daily Decision

articles

Dear Lord,

 

Today I come before You, to ask Your help enabling me to discern between good and evil, between the constructive and the destructive in the development of my character.

 

Lord, I know You want what’s best for me. Sometimes my heart does the opposite of what reason dictates to me. Help me be strong to be able to say No, to be decisive to stop the entry of anything negative into my life.

 

Place in my heart the desire to do Your will, to be able to say Yes when the right circumstances warrant it. I know that with your help I will be able to take on new opportunities for growth.

 

Enlighten me and help me to be able to differentiate between these two simple but transcendental words, Yes and No.

 

“Let your word ‘yes be ‘yes,’ and your ‘no’ be ‘no.’ Anything more than this is from the evil one. Matthew 5:37.
