Just a Thought

Just a quick thought today...

"...we do not need to defend ourselves before you in this matter." Daniel 3:16

I am often prone to feeling a need to justify my words or actions. I know this is rooted in experiences from the past, and it is unhealthy and more importantly, unnecessary. As I read this word, knowing that I am justified in Christ and Christ alone, it prompted a prayer...

Lord, please prick my heart and shut my mouth when I feel the need to justify myself. As long as my words and actions line up with Your truths, I am good! And if they don't, I need to be repenting and seeking forgiveness vs. justifying wrong behavior. I ask this in Your precious name, Amen.
