Good Morning! “If you are insulted because you bear the name of Christ, you will be blessed, for the glorious Spirit of God rests upon you. If you suffer, however, it must not be for murder, stealing, making trouble, or prying into other people’s affairs. But it is no shame to suffer for being a Christian. Praise God for the privilege of being called by his name!” 1 Peter 4:14-16 NLT
Don’t be discouraged by people or things of this world. You didn’t make a mistake when you chose to follow Christ. Stay focused on the Lord. Trust him in all times. Believe his word and let those words/promises speak louder than the world or voice in your ear. Press forward child of God, your crown awaits.
Father God, thank you for another week and for another opportunity to serve you. Lord thank you for your grace and mercy toward us. Thank you for all the things you’ve brought us through. Thank you for letting us experience your joy and for stretching/strengthening us in times of trials and pain. Lord help us to continue to stand on your word. Help us to glorify your name in everything we do and say. Help us to embrace our privilege to be called your own. Lord whenever there is doubt quickly remind us of your faithfulness and allow us to see you work. Continue to keep us, protect and cover our families, touch the lost and begin to soften their hearts to accept you as Lord of their lives. Be with us Father. In Jesus name, Amen!
Keep seeking! Keep trusting! Keep praying!
