“…all things have been created through him and for him.”
(Colossians 1:16b NIV)
My motive is not for myself, but to seek God and His will. As a steward, I need to know what pleases my Master. All from Him, all for Him. This prepares me spiritually to do the work ahead of me.
What has been my problem:
“If you don’t feel strong desires for the manifestation of the glory of God, it is not because you have drunk deeply and are satisfied. It is because you have nibbled so long at the table of the world. Your soul is stuffed with small things, and there is no room for the great.” – John Piper
I thank God that I still had the chance to start this year right.
