Luke 21:25,26

And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon,
and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations,
with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; men's hearts
failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which
are coming on the earth; for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.

How could my heart be strong enough for the end of times?

God's heart is my stronghold.

Lord God, I trust in you. Please draw me close when fears threaten
my heart.

Luke 12;34

For where your treasure is,
there will your heart be also.

What heavenly treasures will I enjoy today?

God, you are the source of all treasure; and I love you above all else.

Luke 12:29

And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what
ye shall drink, neither be ye of a doubtful mind.

What am I looking for with my mind?

My mind is full with the promises of Christ.

Thank-you Father, that when I seek you, you are near.

Luke 9:46,47

Then there arose a reasoning among them, which of
them should be greatest. And Jesus, perceiving the thought
of their heart, took a child, and set him by him, and said
unto them, whosoever shall receive this child in my name
receiveth me.

In what way is a child like the Jesus I know?

Today I seek what is simple and true in Jesus.

Please help me to loosen my grasp on this world, God, and to delight with
you as your child.

Luke 8:15

...on the good ground are they,
which in an honest and good heart,
having heard the word, keep it, and
bring forth fruit with patience.

Am I caring for the ground of my being today, which is the condition of
my heart?

I work with firmness today on the condition of my heart.

Lord God, I confess any ways that my heart is angry and selfish today; and
I ask for your forgiveness and for healing.

Luke 6:45

A good man out of the good treasure of his heart
bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out
of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which
is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth

What is the nature of my abundance?

Today I am careful to speak of what is good.

Lord Jesus, may I be forgiven for the times when my thoughts are
all negative and when my speech is that way too.
