Hallelujah, praise the living God for another day to pray for you all and be used by Him. Today I ask that you consider this statement from François Fénelon (1651-1715)
“The best place to be is where God puts you.”
“When earthly happiness slips away from you, God’s love will give you wings to fly into His bosom, above all your troubles and cares.”
“The only thing that you can control at all is your will.”
1 Peter 5:10 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
10 After you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, will Himself perfect, confirm, strengthen and establish you.
Abba, by the power of the Holy Spirit, through and by Your Son Jesus, Your servant prays. Praise You for the chance to control ourselves. You Lord, are a blessing to us in every way. We might not be able to understand it. But how wonderful, as it provides another chance to pray for understanding. We might not exercise discernment with self- control, but with Your grace, we get to try again. And we can know, that even when we don’t like the place we are in, You have us there for our good. What good and perfect father would place his children in harmful situations without cause? Not You, the Father of all creation. For that, we rejoice in the name of Jesus! As well I pray in Jesus’ Name, amen.
