Good morning, Lord!
Thank you so much for getting me up bright and early and right to work. I am LOVING this new system you’ve given me, and how much I am getting accomplished on all fronts — not just in my work but in my art, too — YAY! 😀 Thank you also for the absolute peace that’s been in the house, and the stability you are maintaining within me. Thank you for your awesome mercy and care! Thank you for working with my husband, and helping him to let go of his stresses and be more peaceful — that’s priceless! 😀 Please be with him today, as he goes to the airport man’s place — the one whom my husband thinks may be key to his future and/or current work changes. Please give my husband favor and wisdom and let YOUR will be done, mighty Shepherd! You are so Faithful!
1 Corinthians 10:9-13 ISV
Let’s stop putting the Lord to the test, as some of them were doing, and were destroyed by snakes.
You must stop complaining, as some of them were doing, and were annihilated by the destroyer.
These things happened to them to serve as an example, and they were written down as a warning for us in whom the culmination of the ages has been attained.
Therefore, whoever thinks he is standing securely should watch out so he doesn’t fall.
No temptation has overtaken you that is unusual for human beings. But God is faithful, and he will not allow you to be tempted beyond your strength. Instead, along with the temptation he will also provide a way out, so that you may be able to endure it.
Thank you, Father, for that awesome Faithfulness of yours! I know I can trust you to always help me, even when I am tempted to defend myself like that silly sheep trying to fight off the wolf. Thank you for providing THAT way out — a picture in my mind’s eye to remind me just how foolish I am when I try to defend myself and use my words to try to be heard and understood. I realize, now while I am NOT heated, that it is YOU who enlightens people’s minds and helps them see the truth. I do not need to fight for the truth, except to keep it in my OWN heart and mind. To use YOUR truth as the plumbline of my life. Thank you for chosing me, Faithful Lord! 😀
