Do Your Best

This is an excerpt from Liveprayer.com's daily devotional today, about how we all fall short sometimes.


There is one simple message that I want you to hear loud and clear today.
GOD LOVES YOU and all He expects is that you do your best each day. None of
us are perfect. The Bible says that we all have sinned and come short of
God's glory. In the course of our day-to-day lives, we all fail God, we all
make choices that we wish we could change. But God knows our heart, and all
He has ever asked you to do, is your best.

Each day I deal with the real life issues that we all face, in the context
of God's Word. I deal with all of the sins that are out there to hurt our
lives. I deal with the tricks that satan uses to try and destroy us. It is
out of my love for you that I share the Absolute Truth of God's Word and how
He has called us to live. I do my best to break down for you why God's way
works.

The fact is, there is right and wrong in our world. Those who oppose God
have always done their best to get people to believe that right and wrong
doesn't exist. Their goal is to get each person to decide for themselves
what is right and wrong. That way, you can never tell a person that they are
wrong no matter what they choose to believe. That sounds wonderful in
theory, but in reality it leads to utter chaos. More important, it is a lie,
since God has clearly told us in His Word what is right and what is wrong.

In the course of applying the truth of God's Word to our personal lives each
day, it can get frustrating when we sin, when we don't follow God's plan.
Again, the word that I want to share with you today is to DO YOUR BEST.
