When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus. Acts 4:13 (NIV)
That is what I want. What do you want? As I spend time with you, as I am in your presence I want to be changed. I want you to change me into a completely different person. I want no part of my life to be left untouched by you. I want you to mold and shape my life according to your will. I want you to work in and through me to accomplish your purposes and fulfill your plans. I want you to do in and through me what I could never do by myself. I want to bear fruit for your kingdom and bring glory to your name. So, we want the same things. We do? Yes, we do. I want others to be astonished at how I have changed your heart, transformed your mind, and guided your life. I want others to know that I am powerfully working in and through you for my kingdom and glory. I want you to be a bold and bright witness for me. I want you to shine brightly in the darkness of this world. I want others to take note that you have been with me, that you are a constant companion of mine. So, we want the same things. That is what I told you.
So, what will you do if you want all these things to be true of you? As I have said, I will meet with you. I will be your constant companion. I will not only meet with you daily, but I will walk with you continually. My heart and mind and life will be focused on you. I will listen attentively to your voice. I will meet with you in your word. I will follow you to where you lead me. I will do whatever you ask me. I will live to know and do your will. My heart and mind and life will be sharply focused on you. That will be very good. You will live the life I have given you to live. You will be the person I have called you to be. Thank you, Lord.
Lord, I will be your constant companion. I will make meeting with you, and walking with you, my priority. Change my heart, transform my mind, and guide my life as I meet with you. Help me to accomplish your purposes and plans. Work in and through me. Amen
