"Thus says the Lord of hosts: Consider your ways." ESV
Living in a non-stop, hectic lifestyle, we find ourselves getting into a fixed pattern of daily living that requires little thought to those things we do day after day. We go on "auto pilot." In a way, we go through the motions of driving back and forth to work or school. We have our minds on a thousand other things while we go through our morning routine. What about our personal time with the Lord? Do we get into that auto pilot mode when we pray and read His Word? If so, we are not getting connected to the Lord at all. Consequently, we lack spiritual renewal and growth. Being deliberate in our time with God, or considering our ways, results in our growing in Christ and being effective in our witness for Him.
Lord, forgive us for mindlessly hurrying through our prayers and devotions. Put a strong desire in our hearts to give careful thought to the important things that cannot be accomplished when we are on "auto pilot." We ask this in Your name, Amen.
