“For our boasting is this: the testimony of our conscience that we conducted ourselves in the world in simplicity and godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom but by the grace of God, and more abundantly toward you.” 2 Corinthians 1:12, NKJV
One morning, my husband and I came together to pray as we normally do. I usually pray first and then he finishes. But as I started to pray, all I could say was, “Thank you Lord”. I had nothing else to say. No petitions to make. Only “Thank you”. And the presence of God filled our hearts right there in our living room. It was a beautiful moment.
God loves sincerity.
Our prayers don’t have to be long to be powerful. A simple “Thank You” spoken sincerely from the heart can lead to a flood of God’s grace and love poured out on us.
Sincerity is powerful.
It denotes purity and simplicity. It describes a quality possessed by God. A sincere thank you, a sincere apology, a sincere prayer, a sincere word of encouragement to someone, and sincere worship can do wonders!
When our hearts are connected with our words and actions, it gets God’s attention and can win us favor with man. Be sincere in all you say and in all you do.
Prayer: Father God, I thank you for your words of wisdom to me. Lord I want to be sincere in all I say and do. I want my heart to be connected to my words and actions. I thank You for developing this godly character-trait in me. Let it mark my life and be a part of who I am. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
