"Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy." ——–James 1:2 (New Living Translation)
Dearest Abba, Yahweh, I adore You, because of the life You have gifted to me. I love You, because You have my best in Your mind and You work out all things for my good. I thank You, Father God, because You give all good things to me at Your perfect time. You don’t withhold any good things from me because You love me dearly. Yahweh, because You are solid rock under my feet, breathing room for my soul, and an impregnable castle I’m set for life. I thank You, Yahweh, for Your Son Jesus Christ, through whom I live and have my being. I pray today that You may deepen this truth in my heart that You keep me in the hollow of Your right hand. I pray that You may show me the way of life, granting me the joy of Your presence and the pleasures of living with You no matter what troubles come my way. I pray that You give me patience to wait for Your deliverance as long as You say with rejoicing and not by fretting. I pray that You fill me with Your peace. Help me choose joy on purpose with my whole my heart despite the adversity of my circumstances because You are forever on the throne and You reign supreme over all things. Through the grace of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen.
