Morning by Morning, July 10 - A Sheep and a Son

Morning by Morning, July 10 - A Sheep and a Son
Good morning, Lord Jesus. I speak out Your name and listen for Your voice.  ...
"The one who enters by the gate is the shepherd of the sheep. The gatekeeper opens the gate for him, and the sheep hear his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. When he has brought out all his own, he goes ahead of them, and the sheep follow him because they know his voice.... Very truly, I tell you, I am the good shepherd" (John 10:2-11).
As I look to You in worship and listen for You in prayer, Your Holy Spirit opens the gate of my spirit to welcome You into every moment of my day. You call me by name; You know my nature and my needs; and You speak into my spirit what You want me to hear and to know.
I'm a sheep and I'm a son -- a sheep of Your fold and a son of my Father. Help me listen and hear, so I can rise and follow You into Your will for my day -- Father, Son, and Holy Spirit of God. ...
As I look and listen to begin this day, it seems I hear You saying:  "My son, you always have the freedom to open the gate of your heart to Me or not, to watch and wait and worship or not, to take time to listen and trust and obey or not. Choose well. Seek Me first and My righteousness and My kingdom. Then all you need will be added unto you; and all I desire for you will be fulfilled through you."
Yes, Lord. As best as I can and all by Your grace, I choose to seek You first (Matthew 6:33). As a sheep of my Good Shepherd, I seek to hear Your voice and open my heart (Hebrews 3:7). As a son of God, I seek to be led by Your Spirit. "For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.... For (we) have received the spirit of sonship (Romans 8:14 RSV).
O Lord, my God, put Your thoughts in my mind and Your desires in my heart. Guide my steps by the leading of Your Spirit into the path of life You have for me today (Psalm 23:3). In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

Be encouraged today! In the Love of Jesus, Tommy Hays
My friend, I pray you choose well to seek God first, that you may hear His voice and be led by His Spirit in the path of life He has chosen for you this day, in Jesus' name! Please pray the same for me. God bless you, my friend!
Friends, I'm glad to have you with me on my daily journey of prayer. These are my journaled prayers I write each morning as I seek to start my day embraced by the Father, centered in Christ, and filled afresh with the Holy Spirit. God bless you and thank you for joining with me on the journey. And thank you so much for praying these prayers back for me, as I pray them for you!
