Been lately feeling really convicted by my sin and weakness to change — my own selfish tendencies and how I put them above others’ interests, my desire for comfort, my pride at small successes when there is still such a long way to go.
O Jesus, change me. And keep me humble and dependent on You while You are doing it.
Especially for this coming term, all this just shows that I can’t make it on my own. I need You. I need Your vision, Your ongoing presence, You.
“If your presence will not go with me, do not bring us up from here. For how shall it be known that I have found favour in your sight, I and your people? Is it not in your going with us, so that we are distinct, I and your people, from every other people on the face of the earth?”
— Exodus 33.15-16
Accompany us and illuminate the way.
