Verse of the Day
For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. Ephesians 2:10 (NLT)
Dearest loving Abba Yahweh, I praise You today because You are worthy. I trust that You are working behind the scenes on my behalf. I believe that You can make a way out of no way, and I look for Your rain of blessing in every area of my life. I declare that my faith and trust are in You. I won’t try to figure everything out, but I will be still and listen for Your voice. I surrender my will to Yours. Thank You for Your faithfulness in my life. Thank You for Your faithfulness to me. Thank You for guiding and directing my steps. Help me each day to give thought to my ways and follow the good plan You have for me. Thank You for choosing me today. Search my heart and remove anything that is displeasing in Your sight. I choose to walk in Your holiness today.
Abba Father, I find it so easy to complain. I find it so hard to trust. I feel stuck. Forgive me for grieving Your heart. Help me, Lord. You know my situation. I can’t move without You. Have mercy on me! Give me a boost; hold Your rod up and part the seas. Help me get moving today and cross on dry ground. Thank you for Your love for me. Forgive me when I forget all the grace and forgiveness You have lavished upon me. Help me to serve You more. Open my eyes that I may see You in Your resurrection power. Help me to move ahead in faith. Help me to be more like You. Help me to get involved in helping and loving those that are in need.
Father, I have wandered so far. I have been happy to be in the bleachers wearing my mask. Today, I come to my senses and surrender my life to You. I want to know You and live for You. Help me to this end I pray. My eyes are blind to many of Your great works, Lord. I miss so much of Your greatness and love. Help me to see You in new ways each day. May Your Holy Spirit conform me to Your image by developing in me patience. Help me to learn to wait upon You and give me the direction I need to share this need with my family. Help us as a family to learn that a calm demeanor in times of frustration and concern can be a powerful witness to the transforming work of God in our lives. In the Sweet and mighty name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen
Bible Promise of the Day
You can enjoy freedom because Christ has set you free. God promises He has set us free through Christ
Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage. – (Galatians 5:1)
Prayer Quote of the day
Prayer cannot truly be taught by principles and seminars and symposiums. It has to be born out of a whole environment of felt need. If I say, “I ought to pray,” I will soon run out of motivation and quit; the flesh is too strong. I have to be driven to pray.
