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, from Gary Smalley & John Trent in their classic book The Blessing. If you have not read this, I strongly suggest it and recommend it.
“…people’s thoughts, dreams, and desires can change over the years. Doctors tell us that every cell in our body wears out and is replaced by new cells with a few years. We are constantly changing physically and emotionally.”
So the critic in me is screaming for a citation on that assertion “doctors tell us”, but there was nothing found in the rear of the book or chapter. I do not dispute it, but my discernment radar sounded the alert. I can, without question, witness to the fact that I have changed in many ways and continue to do so, but the critic in me requires more of His work. My goal today is to focus on the promises and not the problems.
Romans 12:2 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.
Lord God, praise Your perfect and loving ways. Be our wisdom and bring us discernment during these difficult times. Your servant prays that You place Your helmet of salvation on Your children to protect us from fear and anxiety that the world would have us held prisoners to. Be our first thought as we arise each morning. Remind us to put You first and stay in Your Word. Your servant prays that we, Your children, would bind the words of Your mouth to our hearts. Bless us with only good and heavenly thoughts as we go forth in service to honor You and to share the Good News, in Jesus’ Name, amen.
