VerseD: 1 Peter 3:12

“For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and his ears are open to their prayer. But the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.”
1 Peter 3:12, ESV

Do not expect God to listen to your prayers if you openly flaunt your sin.

But if you sincerely draw near to Him and trust in Him, God hears every prayer you pray!

VerseD: Genesis 15:6

And he believed the Lord , and he counted it to him as righteousness.
Genesis 15:6, ESV

The most important thing the Lord requires of us is faith and obedience. Without faith, we cannot be fully obedient. Without obedience, we show our lack of faith.

VerseD: Proverbs 21:21

Whoever pursues righteousness and kindness will find life, righteousness, and honor.
Proverbs 21:21, ESV

Love of God and love of others. This is God’s expectation of everyone. Pursuing God will lead to Christ, our righteousness. His kindness should push us to show the same loving kindness to others.

VerseD: Amos 5:24

But let justice roll down like waters, and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.
Amos 5:24, ESV

As Paul said, without love and mercy, spreading justice to those in need, especially the justice of God, we are only making more noise in the world.

Be a refreshing cup of water to someone, according to God’s love.

VerseD: James 5:16

Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much.
James 5:16, NASB

We not only share our physical needs, but we share our sins with each other: to have accountability, to get encouragement through the struggle, and to find forgiveness.

Pray for each other.

Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me and know my anxious thoughts; And see if there be any hurtful way in me, And lead me in the everlasting way.
Psalm 139:23‭-‬24, NASB

Seek God, but know that He knows everything about you. He will reveal every sin and imperfection, but it is to help you trust and rely on Him as He makes you like Jesus.

VerseD: Luke 16:10

“He who is faithful in a very little thing is faithful also in much; and he who is unrighteous in a very little thing is unrighteous also in much.”
Luke 16:10, NASB

How you live in the little, day-to-day humdrum of life can be evidence of your faithfulness toward great things.

If you want to do great things, be faithful in the ordinary.
