2 Peter 3:9-11 New International Version (NIV)
The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.
10 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything done in it will be laid bare.
11 Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and godly lives
Often times we think of our now and we forget how suddenly life can change. It has a way of changing us into a better person or a bitter person. Along the way of life, we see things differently, but never doubt that God will keep his promises. One day, the Lord will come back for you and then this life is done here. I hope he says well done!
There is also times that our faith is tested. In the Bible we can read stories of David, Noah, Moses and the list goes on. It when you come to the end of your rope and all you can do is say, GOD IS ABLE! There will be times that you are so tired, weary and just wonder a bit too much of why. In those times, it great when someone text messages you or sends you a private message on Facebook. Just something simple like I care or thinking about you. Maybe it isn't anything about you at all, but about someone you care about greatly. The unseen thing happen and you are left on your knees praying, seeking and challenging your own faith to step up. Here is what I pray:
God, I certainly don't understand why this is happening. I left a little uncertainly about your miracle working power and yet I have seen it in action. I know without a doubt, you are able to change a doctor's report to a miracle. I know you are able to speed a recovery process up for someone. I also you know you are able to calm the raging seas. So how about his, I will continue to pray, seek you and know you are able. Thank you for giving me the strength, courage, wisdom and patience to go into this new day with eyes of hope. Holding on for my family, my friends and readers of my blog. Some need health,money, housing, new beginnings and each other. Let us see the blessings of a new day and not the situation we must deal with. Knowing you are healing, guiding, leading and there for each of us. AMEN
Sometimes it hard for someone to pray for themselves. Purpose prayers for those that come to your mind and say them. It might just be your prayer that makes the big difference today.
Well, a lot to be said about this message today. I am holding on some of you who read this, I am holding for those I don't even know. Because without a doubt, I know God is able to handle your now and bring joy into your soul. God I am glad I can be used by you and you give me strength daily in the challenges of life. I rest in knowing you have already done amazing miracles in my life and my family. I rest knowing you will continue to do miracles too!
Purpose this a good day!
