Think and Act Long Term | Facing Your Blitz Weekly Video Devotion

Need some help and inspiration to keep the long run in view? Check out this single mom’s example and some eternal perspective that impacts the here and now.

Game Plan:

So prepare your minds for action and exercise self-control. Put all your hope in the gracious salvation that will come to you when Jesus Christ is revealed to the world. So you must live as God’s obedient children. Don’t slip back into your old ways of living to satisfy your own desires. You didn’t know any better then. But now you must be holy in everything you do, just as God who chose you is holy. For the Scriptures say, “You must be holy because I am holy.” I Peter 1:13-16, NLT

Time Out:

Are you ruled by your feelings? Do circumstances swing your moods and reactions? If so, you are going to have a hard time behaving in a way that improves relationships and leads to good outcomes. A long-term view is such a huge help in the face of trials and disappointments. Eternity is the longest time horizon, but it’s much easier to grasp if you dwell on the person who defines eternity and personally came to offer our salvation.

Start with the end in mind. When you die, will you be with God forever or not? Think…and act long-term.

Go Deep:

Start with the end in mind. When you die, will you be with God forever or not? Christ has graciously offered salvation to all who accept and trust in Him alone. That future with God is also our present. It calls us to a new and free way to live…obedience and holiness…no slavery to selfishness and ugly consequences. To put all your hope in Christ for salvation leads to self-control and actions of love, rather than reactions of selfishness or fear. Think…and act long-term.
