Thank You, God, for molding us and shaping us, and raising us. Your grace is resting upon us and Your mercies have opened this day before us. Thank You, that You have included us in that grace and mercy we see today. Thank You, that You have destined us to be a part of Your purposes here on earth today. Thank You, that Your hand is not only designing us but it’s overshadowing us and protecting us, and leading us into Your perfect and holy will. In the name of Jesus Christ, we pray, AMEN!
Father God, thank You that we do not fight the battles of this life alone. Thank You for being our advocate through every trial and every season. “The Lord shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.” Exodus 14:14
What is Jesus speaking to your heart today? Listen, for the words He speaks they are spirit and they are life. “It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.” John 6:63
Life gives us two options: stop where we are now and walk away or keep moving forward until one’s destination is reached. Giving up is not an option. The perseverance of our Christian journey is more than obtaining worldly goals, success, and the like. It’s a continual press onward and upward toward the kingdom of God. Heaven is our destination, and although it may be hard at times, we must keep pressing forth until we are where Jesus is.
