Hallelujah, praise the living God for another day to pray for you all and be used by Him. Today I offer this line from Charles Spurgeon.
“Carnal lusts, however strong they may be, often do not obtain what they seek.”
James 4:2-3 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
2 You lust and do not have; so you commit murder. You are envious and cannot obtain; so you fight and quarrel. You do not have because you do not ask. 3 You ask and do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, so that you may spend it on your pleasures.
Heavenly and Holy Father, in the name of our Lord Jesus, Your servant praises and worships You. Bless You for being so good and pure. Thank You for being our everything. Your servant often asks with wrong motives, thinking only of self and comfort, but Your love is too true to allow us those creature comforts. Lord, in all Your goodness You require much more which we praise You for as Your correction leads to righteousness. Bless us all with Your armor today so our thoughts, hearts, and souls can be well protected in these troubling times. In Jesus’ name, amen.
