Joshua 22:5

But take diligent heed to do the commandment and
the law, which Moses the servant of the Lord charged
you, to love the Lord your God, and to walk in all
his ways, and to keep his commandments, and to
cleave unto him; and to serve him with all your
heart and with all your soul.

What associations do I have with the idea of soulful service?

I give heart service to God today.

Thank you, Lord, that you desire the service of your people.

Deuteronomy 13:6

If thy brother, the son of thy mother, or thy son,
or thy daughter, or the wife of thy bosom, or thy
friend, which is as thine own soul, entice thee
secretly, saying, Let us go and serve other gods,
which thou hast not known, thou, nor thy fathers...
thou shalt not consent unto him...

What pressures have I experienced from and family and/or friends
to involve myself in unwholesome activities?

I serve only the LORD in every way.

Lord God, please keep me steady in my service to you this day and always.

Psalms 3:2,3

Many there be which say of my soul,
There is no help for him in God. Selah.
But thou, O Lord, art a shield for me;
my glory, and the lifter of my head.

When recently have I experienced God as a shield? Can this
imagery be helpful for me today?

My defender is God.

I am in awe, Lord, of the glory that you share with all people,
no matter what their circumstances.
