“Don’t act thoughtlessly, but understand what the Lord wants you to do” (Ephesians 5:17, NLT).
I’ve received NLT’s daily e-verses for more than ten years. Today’s verse is one of my favorites! I believe it is a great reminder not to get caught up in the things of life, but to take the time to spend with the Lord. To learn discernment and character.
Next time you find yourself in a bind, not sure which way to go, start by asking the Holy Spirit to fill you up with songs of worship and thanksgiving (see the rest of the passage, Ephesians 5:15-20). Worship wins the war!
