Respect the Lord your God and serve only him. You must use only his name to make promises.
In order for us to glorify God in all that we do, we must make him our priority. Because many things pull on our attention and time, we need to focus on WHOM and WHAT we are going to serve. As a mom, I need to serve ONLY him.
Giving God your respect means to realize and acknowledge WHO he is. He is the creator of all things! He is sovereign, Lord of all. He is holy. He is the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. He is mighty, powerful, all knowing, loving, merciful, just, and full of grace.
God, as I go about my day, show me different ways I can serve only you. I want to be mindful of your presence and commit my day to you. I do not want you to be an afterthought at the end of my day. In the morning when I wake up, I want to give you the praise and glory for another day. Thank you for your love and grace. You are mighty and amazing! Thank you, Lord, for wanting to be in a relationship with me. Amen.
