Dear Heavenly Father:
Thank you for making a way for us to live the abundant life that was Jesus’ mission. Thank you for bringing us back into right standing with You when we made Jesus the Lord of our lives. Let us always be light and salt, even as we see these evil days approaching. You have provided all we need to live well during these trying times. Let us not cast away our confidence, as we look to the right and to the left.
Hebrews 10:35-37 (KJV) 35 Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward. 36 For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise. 37 For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry.
Hebrews 12:2 (KJV). Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
Hebrews 12:2 (The Message Bible). 2 Keep your eyes on Jesus, who both began and finished this race we’re in. Study how he did it. Because he never lost sight of where he was headed – that exhilarating finish in and with God – he could put up with anything along the way: cross, shame, whatever. And now he’s there, in the place of honor, right alongside God.
I believe the Lord would say, “The earth is mine, and the fullness thereof. For every animal of the forest is mine, and the cattle on a thousand hills.” Do you not believe that I can provide for my beloved children? Have I not promised to meet all of your need, according to my riches in glory by my son Christ Jesus?! Rejoice greatly and be glad that your names are written in the Lamb’s book of life. Eternal life is a substance, and you have it even right now. It is the supernatural provision from Me to you.’
So be bold, be strong, for the Lord your God is with you! Don’t broadcast to others or amongst yourselves how hard life is becoming. You are not only from this realm, but you are partakers of the divine nature.
2 Peter 1:3-4 (ESV). “His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us to his own glory and excellence, by which he has granted to us His precious and very great promises, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption in the world…”
We can use our faith RIGHT NOW to claim these promises and enjoy the beautiful Fall season around us. The earth is preaching the Gospel in spite of the downturns we see as this World System is dying. But we have the blessed hope of our SOON COMING KING! In the twinkling of an eye, with the trump of God, He is coming to take us to Himself and out of danger when the wrath of God is poured out on the earth for 7 years of tribulation.
So look up, look up… for your redemption draws nigh…and remember every minute you are here, who you are and why you are here in this moment in time. Even the very hairs of your heads are counted. 🙂
