May 6
Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is very powerful in its effect. James 5:16 CSB
Deuteronomy 23

The Lord has a reason for everything He does.  He is Just and His ways are therefore always Just.  He is Holy and so must we be.  We can because we have the Holy Spirit abiding in each of us.
Song of Solomon 3
As a women longs to be with the one she loves, so I must long for the Presence of my God.
1 Timothy 4
4 For everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving, 5 since it is sanctified by the word of God and by prayer.
Discipline in the things of God, the things of the Spirit, is much more important than the discipline of the flesh.  The Lord will help with both as I ask but the flesh is so very temporary and my spirit is eternal.  I must be an example using the gifts given me by God and teaching His Word to others.  Age is not important but maturity in the things of God is what matters.
Meditate & Apply: God is Just and Holy, therefore this is how I am expected to live.  I need God in all things yet I must long for Him and not just want Him in my life because I need Him.  Whatever is sanctified by the Word of God and prayer, is good.  Use what God has gifted me with, with His grace and He will be pleased and I will be successful in my Call.

Amen, maturity in the things of God is what matters. It's not even how many years we have been walking with God, but that we yearn to continue to grow, and let God change us.
