Just in for Valentine’s Day -- a love letter from God to you. Read what God has to say. It’s all right in the scriptures! My Child In me you live and move and have your being. Acts 17:28 I know everything about you. Psalm 139:1 I know when you
The apostle Paul was a prisoner when he wrote his letter to the Philippians. Ancient Roman attitudes toward life and death were bleak. In writing his letter from a place of exceptional suffering, Paul offers joy from that place. He writes to the Philippians to tell them that the could experiece the same joy-in-spite-of-suffering if they would embrace that gospel message. In the spirit of Paul’s message of joy-in-spite-of-suffering I offer this prayer for your use:
Gracious God, we give thanks that you go before us and cover us from behind. You are in our midst, and our future is secure in the place you’re preparing for us. We choose faith over fear today. We choose to set our eyes on you and not on our circumstances. We choose joy over despair. We choose peace over worry... We trust you to protect our way and bring us safely through the trials we’re facing.
Your words bring hope to our souls and comfort to our hearts. Remind us of your strength today, in us, through us. May we see glimpses of your glory and blessing along the way as we seek after you. For victory and salvation are found in you alone. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
