Luke 19:11  The crowd was listening to everything Jesus said. And because he was nearing Jerusalem, he told them a story to correct the impression that the Kingdom of God would begin right away. (NLT)

Kind correction is a gift. 

Jesus kindly prevented his followers from believing what was not true. He redirected their thoughts. He rechanneled their energy. He refocused their attention. Something bigger, better, and broader than their expectations was in play. 

How often have you prayed, “O LORD, please correct me here and now and as often as necessary?” You might want to add it to your prayer repertoire. 

Ignorance regarding God’s intentions for this world and his purpose for our lives leads to distracted thinking and unfocused activity. 

Psalms is full of questions like, “How long, O LORD?” It is also full of requests like, “Show me the way I should go.” When we don’t know, let’s not guess. Let’s go to God who knows all things. Let’s ask him to place his thoughts in our minds, his words in our mouths, his strength in our bones. 

Here and now, our Father in Heaven sees the end of this day as clearly as we see this moment. Let us entrust ourselves to him who knows the ending before the beginning. Let us join him in his purpose for these hours. Let us join him in what he chooses to do during all the days separating us from his immediate and unending presence.

I will welcome God’s kind correction and purposeful redirection. 

Our Father, please correct me here and now and as often as necessary. Show me the way I should go. Empower me with your thoughts, your words, and your strength. Amen.

Daily D – Psalm 101:2

Psalm 101:2 ”I will pay attention to the way of integrity.
When will you come to me?
I will live with a heart of integrity in my house.“

Psalm 100:3 Acknowledge that the Lord is God.
He made us, and we are his—

Daily D – 1 Kings 19:3-9

1 Kings 19:3-9 Then Elijah became afraid and immediately ran for his life. When he came to Beer-sheba that belonged to Judah, he left his servant there, but he went on a day’s journey into the wilderness. He sat down under a broom tree and prayed that he might die. He said, “I have had enough! Lord, take my life, for I’m no better than my ancestors.” Then he lay down and slept under the broom tree.

Suddenly, an angel touched him. The angel told him, “Get up and eat.” Then he looked, and there at his head was a loaf of bread baked over hot stones, and a jug of water. So he ate and drank and lay down again. Then the angel of the Lord returned for a second time and touched him. He said, “Get up and eat, or the journey will be too much for you.” So he got up, ate, and drank. Then on the strength from that food, he walked forty days and forty nights to Horeb, the mountain of God. He entered a cave there and spent the night. Suddenly, the word of the Lord came to him, and he said to him, “What are you doing here, Elijah?”

Daily D – 1 Kings 14:12-13

1 Kings 14:12, 13 “As for you, get up and go to your house. When your feet enter the city, the boy will die. All Israel will mourn for him and bury him. He alone out of Jeroboam’s house will be given a proper burial because out of the house of Jeroboam something favorable to the Lord God of Israel was found in him.“

Daily D – 1 Kings 12:6-7

1 Kings 12:6, 7 Then King Rehoboam consulted with the elders who had served his father Solomon when he was alive, asking, “How do you advise me to respond to this people?” They replied, “Today if you will be a servant to this people and serve them, and if you respond to them by speaking kind words to them, they will be your servants forever.”
