WORD: Now since we are made right in the sight of God by faith in his promises, we can have real peace.
PRAYER: Lord, teach us to know that peace is for all of us and I pray that we know that it is for us. I believe the reason why we don’t have peace in our life is because we do not know that it is for us at all times. We can have peace despite our circumstances we know to be true but living it out is hard for us to actually do while going through the trials or temptations because we get our eyes focused on the wrong things instead of you. We say that we believe in your word, stand on your word, yet seeing people want to hurt you through their actions or words is very hard to take. I don’t like it when the enemy uses people to cause division through justifying their actions in believing what they are doing is right and just.
WORD: It is a place of faith to believe He has brought us into this place of highest privilege where we now stand and we confidently and joyfully look forward to actually becoming all that God has had in mind for us to be. We can rejoice when we run into problems and trials for we know that they are good for us, they help us learn to be patient, patience develops strength of character in us and helps us trust god more each time we use it until finally our hope and faith are strong and steady.
PRAYER: We must know who we are, and why we are called so God you must open our eyes and give us daily signs of who we are in Christ. Our identity is so meaningful and important. It is hard to understand why it takes years for us to understand who we are in you. We must believe with confidence everything we go through is ordained by you Lord. You are making us stronger and stronger, able to stand for the purpose of what you have called us to do and I am thankful for that. I am gaining more understanding in what the Scripture says about counting it all joy, even the failures or the wrong turns we make. I must trust you Lord that you are developing us to fulfill everything you have called us to do. Help me to be persistent, consistent and stand despite of how people treat us, because in the end Lord you know our heart better than anyone else. Let Your Holy Spirit fill our hearts to overflowing to endure what you have in store for our daily living. I love you Jesus!
