So you believe in Jesus.
You know He was God’s Son, and you know He came to earth and lived among us as a man, as one of us. You know He taught about God and performed some miracles. You know He died on the Cross so the sins of those who believed could be forgiven. You know the tomb is empty because He rose and is in heaven with the Father. You believe. You’re a Christian, maybe even a member of a church somewhere.
But something is missing.
You aren’t growing. Or, you haven’t changed.
You took the big step: you believed.
But you don’t walk every day in what you believe.
You know stories about Him but haven’t experienced Him for yourself.
It is time to walk in what you say you believe. Every day. Be a servant girl. Live in it every day.
It is time to serve.
It is time to respond to the Good News, to God. To what He’s offering.
It is time to discover God’s will for your life and obey it.
It is time to recognize His voice and respond to it.
It is time for an intimate relationship.
It is time to pray and listen.
It is time to open your Bible.
It is time to live the every day details of who you say you are.
(I’m talking to myself, too).
Maybe you’re asking: How do I walk as a servant girl? How do I serve God? How do I respond?
I can’t answer those questions for you personally. God has to tell you that.
But I can tell you how to seek the answers.
I am learning to walk daily.
I am learning to recognize His voice.
I am learning to obey.
I have to stop here because this is where Satan is telling me that I don’t do these things that I’m saying I do.
And he’s right. To a point.
I don’t do them every day, all day.
I get full of pride.
I get lazy.
I get distracted.
I get on the wrong path.
I am human, so I make mistakes and try to go my own way and do things in my own power.
But very soon God calls me back. I hear His voice. He shows me my sin. I repent and get back on the right path.
Yes, I still sin. Yes, I still make mistakes and get my eyes off God.
But I know His voice. I have a relationship with Him. We are always talking so it isn’t long before He gets me back where I should be. It isn’t long and I don’t go very far before He corrects me.
Because I know Him. I recognize His voice. I talk to Him and listen to Him.
I walk with Him. I read His word. I obey Him. I submit. I serve.
I want to share with you what He’s taught me about being a servant girl.
In 2021, I want to help you discover how to daily walk with God.

Prayer of Affirmation
Lord, you have told me that you go behind me and before me and that you hem me in on all sides. You have assured me of salvation through your Son and of a relationship with you through your Spirit. You have shown me that I can always trust you. In these assurances from you, Lord, I am blessed. I will fix my mind on these things and receive your comfort. I will fix my mind on you and what you have already done and already given. I will yield to you. I will trust you. I will rest in you and be at peace.
