A Promise and a Prayer!

Today’s Text: Ephesians 3:11,12
“…in Christ Jesus our Lord … we have boldness and access with confidence through faith in Him…”

Father in Heaven, it is with a sense of wonder that I contemplate Your Sovereignty.  In the knowledge of Your will, a peaceful, certainty embraces my being.  In You, all of heaven and earth will again be restored to harmony.  I claim it and I believe it!

It is in the hope of the restoration of peace, love and harmony that I come to You today claiming the Presence of Your Spirit.  With boldness, I ask You to sweep away lingering doubts that may cloud my mind.  In the beauty and sunshine of Your Will, I choose to dwell.  Open my eyes to see the possibilities of a life that embraces eternity.

May the restoration of all things be my personal experience this day.  Build back in me, whatever losses may have been suffered through the influence of my saboteur.  May my past experiences be tools in Your able hands, to guide and to direct my life.  May the promise of this day increase my capacity to truly live life abundantly.  And may my grasp of eternity be heightened and strengthened in the anticipation of the fulfilment of Your will.

My soul longs for renewal and restoration; wholeness in Christ.  Fill me with the power and strength of Your Spirit.  Awaken within me the capacity to live and love as You do.  May my life be a sacrificial offering to bless and to lift the influence of Your Will.

Thank You for the purposes that will be realized today in my life.  Purposes that will bring joy to the world.  Hope beyond our wildest dreams.  Certainty and strength.  Peace and Love…

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

 

MY JOURNAL

 

As you consider this devotional, ponder these 3 points for Bible Study.

 

1. What does this passage tell me about God?

2. What does this passage tell me about myself?

3. What is God trying to tell me?
    Is there a promise to claim?   a sin to confess?   an encouragement?                a rebuke?    an assignment?

Place your appointments into the hands of God and ask Him to orchestrate this day after His will. Praise Him and thank Him for the enabling grace to aid you in His sovereign work.

To dwell in partnership with the agencies of heaven is God’s will for us each day.      Praise Him for the certainty and comfort of His Presence.
