Which one do you need to learn more about? What steps are you going to take?

What is one area or circumstance in your life that requires God’s direction? Take time, right now, to ask Him to show you clearly what He wants you do.

In “Only Jesus,” Beth Yoe included these words from Charles Spurgeon:
We shall never find happiness by looking at our prayers, our doings, or our feelings; it is what Jesus is, not what we are, that gives rest to the soul.

In what ways do you let Jesus define your happiness?

What other things often take the place of Jesus (be honest!)?

What action steps do you need to take in order to allow Jesus to be the central thing in your life?

Mary exclaimed, “I have seen the Lord!” In what ways have you seen Jesus?

Write It on Your Heart

Take a few minutes to memorize this verse:
“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.” (Philippians 2:3–4)
