Hallelujah, praise the living God for another day to pray for you all and be used by Him. Today I offer this line from Dietrich Bonhoeffer.
“There is no fulfillment of the law apart from communion with God, and no communion with God apart from fulfillment of the law.”
John 17:21 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
21 that they may all be one; even as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be in Us, so that the world may believe that You sent Me.
Abba, in the name of our Lord Jesus, Your servant praises You. Thank You for Your creation and special love and attention You have for us. Thank You for the call and claim on our souls, the very souls You spoke into life. Humble us Lord, refine and test until we have been made clean so we can be in Your presence. Gird us Jehovah-Jireh for the battles that are before us. Allow Your servants to suit up for this spiritual warfare in Your full set of armor. Be our strength as we confess our weakness and powerlessness. May our boasts of weakness invite Your Holy Spirit to overpower any evil or strongholds that are crowding You out. Help us to focus on the heavenly things while we wait in joyful anticipation of Your return. In Jesus’ name, amen.
