His Designed Purpose

I  know the fascinating works you are masterful of doing. I am trusting you, Lord,  in all circumstances whether I like them or not. I know there is purpose in the midst of heartbreak or unexpected loss. I know it will all work out at the end of the day.

I will wait patiently and observe closely how your divine plan unfolds. Just extend grace as I wrap my mind around these difficult circumstances!

“So we are convinced that every detail of our lives is continually woven together to fit into God’s perfect plan of bringing good into our lives, for we are his lovers who have been called to fulfill his designed purpose.”

Romans 8:28 TPT

Your unchanging character is the foundation of my Faith. 

I don’t need answers to ‘why’ questions but I do need a tight hug from you right now while I weep in love and hope.

I know time is limited on earth. Lord teach me how to live out my Faith fully amidst the sorrow and pain of these startling moments.

You are a revitalizing God in our defeats, and a festive God in our victories. I’m moving forward one step at a time.

You are my Sunrise who is about to do much more than I can ever envision. 

I am giving thanks to God, the Father for everything, and give you all the glory for what you are about to do in my life. (Ephesians  5:20 ) 

In Jesus’ name, I praise.

Amen.

Prized Treasure Chest.

“I consider your prophecies to be my greatest treasure, and I memorize them and write them on my heart to keep me from committing sin’s treason against you.” 

Psalms 119:11 TPT

Lord,

The devil is the father of lies and is quite crafty! He plants doubt in my mind when I’m vulnerable or in distress. John 8:44 describes the devil as a ‘murderer’ who never believed in your truth. I refuse to be his victim in his next crime scene. Help me get ready for everyday battle, Father. Let the enemy’s wicked schemes melt away once and for all!

The heart is deceitful (Jeremiah 17:9) and cannot be fully trusted when there are confusion and mixed emotions. Help me not trust my emotions completely so I do not overreact,  and make hasty decisions in the midst of controversies or in the midst of persecution or never-ending temptations. I refuse to be taken into captivity or fall back on Satan’s trap or fall into empty deceit of human traditions (Colossians 2:8).

Help me stand strong in Faith. Help me listen to your whispers of revelation. Help me guard my tender heart. So, no bitterness, unforgiveness or hatred take root deep in my heart.

Jesus, you are my everyday sunrise and sunset,  the beginning and the end. You are Peace.

Your Word is a priceless jewel in my treasure chest. Your Word is alive and active (Hebrews 4:12). Renew my mind at sunrise!

When I hide Truth in my heart’s treasure box, it is effortless to combat Satan’s tactics. Your living truth, sharper than any double-edged sword, makes an impact on one’s life.

Yes, Lord!

Help me focus on every Word you’ve carved in my mind, heart, and soul,

in Jesus’ name, I pray.

Amen.
