Good morning, Lord!
Thank you so much for the sweet reassurance this morning, showing me your grace and mercy. Thank you for not letting the dizzies get me yesterday, as I had to put myself in a bad physical position for my neck, in order to fix my computer. Thank you for not letting that last, healing it up right away!! Father, I lift my oldest son up to you and ask that you comfort and encourage him. Don’t let frustration and discouragement and despair get him, Lord. Show him that you are still taking care of him, even though the plans he had did not go through. Lord, I know that you are faithful and for whatever reason, you did not want him to walk that particular path. But Father, I ask that you help my son find a new path before his heart grows cold with the agony of his situation. Lead him, mighty Shepherd!
Hebrews 13:20 ERV
I pray that the God of peace will give you every good thing you need so that you can do what he wants. God is the one who raised from death our Lord Jesus, the Great Shepherd of his sheep. He raised him because Jesus sacrificed his blood to begin the new agreement that never ends. I pray that God will work through Jesus Christ to do the things in us that please him. To him be glory forever. Amen.
Romans 8:33-38 ERV
Who can accuse the people God has chosen? No one! God is the one who makes them right.
Who can say that God’s people are guilty? No one! Christ Jesus died for us, but that is not all. He was also raised from death. And now he is at God’s right side, speaking to him for us.
Can anything separate us from Christ’s love? Can trouble or problems or persecution separate us from his love? If we have no food or clothes or face danger or even death, will that separate us from his love?
As the Scriptures say, “For you we are in danger of death all the time. People think we are worth no more than sheep to be killed.”
But in all these troubles we have complete victory through God, who has shown his love for us.
Yes, I am sure that nothing can separate us from God’s love–not death, life, angels, or ruling spirits. I am sure that nothing now, nothing in the future, no powers, nothing above us or nothing below us–nothing in the whole created world–will ever be able to separate us from the love God has shown us in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Thank you, Jesus, for showing us God’s love and making us accepted and beloved and cared for! Thank you for peace — within ourselves and with God and each other. Thank you for showing me clearly this morning, how nothing at all can separate me from that love and care — not even my own actions! Thank you for making me more dependent upon you all the time, so I can grow and be more stable and loving. Thank you for choosing me!
