Much like you, this past month has been crazy for me also! The enemy has constantly tormented me with issue after issue after issue. I must admit, I got the wind knocked out of me for a moment. As I come to my
senses and recount the many promises and blessings that God has spoken over me, I can’t help but recite 1 Peter 2:9 But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. ( Let’s stop right there and praise God for his mercy, his goodness and most of all his grace!) Even when it appears that things are all messed up in our small little world, we have to remember to look up and keep our focus on God! God has it all covered, from the end to the beginning and back again, he’s been there, done that, finished his work and certified that “it is good!”
Everyone reading this post… know this and believe it: If you were not in the game, making a difference In the body of Christ, the enemy would not even give you a second thought! But you, with your “sound mind in Christ Jesus” need to stay on guard and prepare your mind for action; be self-controlled; set your hope fully on the grace to be given you when Jesus Christ is revealed! (1 Peter 1:13)
With that said, it’s on! Psalm 51:10-12 Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of my
salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me!
Prayer: My dearest Heavenly Father, with a bowed
head and humble heart, I enter into your Presence with thanksgiving! I am so
excited to be your daughter; I am so excited to study your word and so excited
to be one of your chosen people. Father, thank you for receiving me just as I
am, weary, worn and lost. Thank you! You are able to present me before yourself
and I gracious accept your help! I love you…In Jesus Name! AMEN!
