What will you strive for today?
What qualities do you want to mature and grow in today?
I like how the message version implores us to grow and mature in the areas listed so that we will remember and not question that we are forgiven and free.
I've encountered many women who wonder about their salvation and wonder about the final judgement--those of us marked as Christ's own shouldn't wonder.
But if we're still living an immature mostly sinful life than it makes sense that we would have an upheaval in our souls and minds that the enemy can use to make us question, doubt, and become marginalized instead of empowered.
Let's choose today to develop these Christ-like characteristics.
Let's choose today to speak out our prayers over ourselves and ask God to empower you by the Holy Spirit to grow and mature for your blessings in this life and the life to come.

Let's pray: Dear Lord thank You for Your love and mercy. Thank You for making a way for us to be forgiven, free, and empowered to walk out our calling day by day.
We are in awe of Your love and sacrifice Lord Jesus.
Lord please lead us this day to submit ourselves for Your transformation and change. Please help us to cultivate the qualities that will leave no doubt to our spirits and those around us that we are Your followers.
Thank You Jesus, Amen.
