HONOR, GLORY, AND PRAISE BE TO GOD!
God's Gracious Blessings and A Glorious Good Afternoon My Friends -- Scripture, thought, and prayer for Tuesday, April 2, 2019
With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. —Ephesians 4:2-3
The Holy Spirit reaches out with His truth and reminds you that relationships on earth, even those in LORD Jesus' Church, are going to require a lot of effort, gritty love, personal sacrifice, and rigorous determination, all with humbleness and humility. If you read LORD Jesus' prayer for unity in John 17, how could you not make every effort to keep His Body unified and your relationship with His people loving and patient? Since your salvation was purchased at the cost of LORD Jesus' sweat and blood, how can you balk when your best efforts are required to preserve the unity of His family? Everlasting Immortal Firmament
Let Us Pray.......
Heavenly Father, I come to You in LORD Jesus' Name, to give You praise and to thank You for EVERYTHING good and not so good in this life.
Dear Heavenly Father, forgive my impatience with others and lack of forgiveness for them. Stir Your Spirit within me to curb my tongue, soften my heart, and extend more of an effort to others who need Your blessing. Please use me to be a peacemaker, in all humbleness and humility, in Your Kingdom.
Please, Father God, teach me Your ways and how not to worry, give me more patience, and guide me to help others to find You and Your words. With the power of the Holy Spirit, and in and through LORD Jesus, who conquered Satan, sin and death, and in His Holy and Mighty Name I pray. Amen.
