Be Steadfast

So, my dear brothers and sisters, be strong and immovable. Always work enthusiastically for the Lord, for you know that nothing you do for the Lord is ever useless.

~ 1 Corinthians 15:58 [NLT]

We know that when we dedicate our efforts to the Lord, he will use them for his glory! Be steadfast in your work. Do not allow distractions, confusion, and falsehoods stop you from your ability to serve the Lord. When we are grounded in the Word and are faithful to spending time in his presence, then we are able to be immovable in our faith walk. 

Evening Prayer

WORK WITH DILIGENCE 
Psalm 128:2; Proverbs 28:19; Ephesians 6:7

In Jesus’ Name, I Pray God’s Will for You

I pray that you will work hard today, diligently laboring on the tasks God has given you. May you go about your work, as if you were doing it for God and not for man. May you not overlook important details and complete each task in an efficient and excellent manner. I pray that God will give you vigor when the enemy tries to make you lazy or sluggish, may you be focused on your work, not chasing after fantasies, but doing everything with sound judgment. May God be glorified when others witness your diligence.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

The Way

And this is the way to have eternal life—to know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, the one you sent to earth.

~ John 17:3 [NLT]

In a world riddled with confusion, there is ONE truth — Jesus! He came to Earth so we might believe in him and gain eternal life.  As you go through your daily routine, let this truth inspire you to help point those around you to the WAY.

Evening Prayer

DELIGHT IN THE LORD 
Psalms 1:1-3; Psalms 37:4

In Jesus’ Name, I Pray God’s Will for You

I pray that you will not walk in the counsel of the wicked, or stand in the way of sinners, or sit in the seat, of mockers. Rather, may your delight be in the law of the Lord and in following His commands. I pray that as you delight in His law and earnestly seek to walk by it, you will be like a tree that is planted by streams of water; for such a tree bears fruit in season and its leaves do not wither. May you delight in His word and meditate on it day and night, and surely you will prosper. I pray that you will delight in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Daily Wisdom

“But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.”

~ 2 Cor 4:7

Be not surprised if you feel that in yourself you are but an earthen vessel; if you are made deeply and daily sensible unto what a frail body God has communicated light and life. Be not surprised if your clay house is often tottering; if sickness sometimes assails your mortal tabernacle; if in your flesh there dwells no good thing; if your soul often cleaves to the dust; and if you are unable to retain a sweet sense of God’s goodness and love. Be not surprised nor startled at the corruptions of your depraved nature; at the depth of sin in your carnal mind; at the vile abominations which lurk and work in your deceitful and desperately wicked heart. Bear in mind that it is the will of God that this heavenly treasure which makes you rich for eternity should be lodged in an earthen vessel.

We are to carry about a daily sense of our base original to hide pride from our eyes. We are to be despised by others; and by none so much as by our own selves. We have ever to feel our native weakness, and that without Christ we can do nothing; that we may be clothed with humility, and feel ourselves the chief of sinners, and less than the least of all saints. We thus learn to prize the heights, breadths, lengths, and depths of the love of Christ, who stooped so low to raise us up so high.
