Deut 6:5 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.

Duet 10:12 And now, Israel, what doth the Lord thy God require of thee, but to fear the Lord thy God, to walk in ALL His ways, and to love Him, and to serve the Lord thy God with ALL thy heart and with all thy soul.

Mt 6:33 But seek ye first the kindom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Mt 22:37 Jesus said unto him, thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul and with all thy mind.

The Lord makes it pretty clear to us in these verses that we are to love Him and do all of His will.

Phil 2:13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of His good pleasure.
:14 Do all things without murmurings and disputings.

He also makes it clear we should do it with a right heart attitude.

Phil 4:13 I can do all things through Christ which strentheneth me.

Phil 4:19 But my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

He tells us the reason we are able to do these things is because of His helping us.

Col 3:17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father of Him.

Every day when I bring our 17 year old son to work, we pray this scripture for him. He wants to do a good job and this keeps his focus on the one who can and will help him. Our son is of a small physical build and with the Lord's help he is able to do all of the physical work required of him. This week he is scheduled 32 hours while others doing the same thing were scheduled 4 hours. It is only through Christ that he is able to do all of the school work he has as a junior (we homeschool), work that amount of hours, and keep up our yard. He realizes this and if he is the one to pray that day he makes sure and prays for the Lord's help and strength as do I. God is honoring his work ethic because our son is giving God the glory for what He enables him to do.

How totally awesome! Thank you for sharing! I'm going to start praying this with my boys. I already pray it for myself. My oldest isn't a large man & I have concerns about that with him going into law enforcement. But I will be a prayer warrior for him.

Love ya girlfriend! Miss you too!
