Dear Precious Friends,
As we begin our day with the Lord giving Him our everything... asking forgiveness of the sin that separates us from Him, we pour out our hearts... our trials, our worship, our petitions, our requests, our family, our circumstances...... may we stay strong knowing the truth of His word as we take it His truth and it becomes a part of us. He hears every prayer and we wait in confident and joyful expectation that the creator of all, hears us and answers every single prayer.
Let’s live this out!!
Lord, You have promised that the testing of our faith produces perseverance, which in time will bring forth the beautiful Christlike character that You so desire in all Your children- which all too often we personally seek to avoid.. or regard as a time of bitter struggle. Help us Lord to embrace any trials that You see fit to enter our lives. Help us to look at the difficulties that engulf us with Your eyes.. and give us an eternal perspective on all the problems we may be called upon to face, so that we may count it all joy when we are confronted with various trials, knowing that the testing of our faith produces the godly fruit of patience - and help us Lord, to use those times of testing as an opportunity to grow in grace and as a springboard to develop a deeper and more secure relationship with You. Lord it is not alway easy to align our minds with the mind of Christ - it is often very hard to see trials in a positive light, and to embrace the various testings we have to go through, as a thing to be highly prized, and yet Your Word tells us that life's difficulties sharpen our faith, while developing our trust in You, which is more precious to You than much fine gold. Give us a heart that understands and chooses to look at trials and tests from Your perspective, so that the testing of our faith may bring forth the righteous fruit or patience and grace. We ask all this in the precious name of Jesus. Amen and Amen!
