You are Treasured

March 16, 2011 Donna New

At the beginning of your petitions an answer went out, and I have come to give it, for you are treasured by God… Daniel 9:23 Daniel was fasting and praying, confessing his sins and the sins on behalf of God’s people. Humility must mean a lot to God. When we confess our sins His ears perk up. Isaiah confessed his sins and his people’s sins in Isaiah 6 and Nehemiah did the same in Nehemiah 1. God heard their prayers and called them out for a specific, meaningful work to do.

I was reading a devotional about at the end of the day going through our day with Jesus. Tell Him our joys, our frustrations, our sins and thank Him for His mercy during our day. This is something I’ve never done. I confess my sins once in a while but not daily. I want to be treasured by God and I want to make a specific effort to confess my sins daily and also to be grateful to Him. Talking with Him is so powerful and the privilege we have is to touch God’s heart. What will He call us to do or be if we spend time before Him with a deeply humble spirit?

    Thank you. We try to do things on our own- just simply going about our day without thinking about Him. I have found that thingsa are so much sweeter when we include Him in our day. I also wonder how much that I miss bt not talkng and listening to Him.
