You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what He has promised. Hebrews 10:36 (NIV) I recently attended prayer fellowship where we gathered together and prayed for others. Among the heartfelt prayer requests for help with family challenges, health and personal needs was an almost empty page with these handwritten words, “To know God’s will and follow it.” The simplicity and beauty, the devotion itself, settled deep in my heart and just like that, an anonymous stranger’s prayer became my own. God amazes me every day. Perfect words, perfect timing, chance encounters, mini miracles, grace all of our lives. I hope the Scriptures, reflections and prayers in these pages guide you to grow closer to God, and help you recognize the many ways He touches…

a prayer for august

All things bright and beautiful,All creatures great and small,All things wise and wonderful:You, Lord God, made them all.Each little flower that opens,Each little bird that sings,You made their glowing colors,You made their tiny wings.The changing of the seasons,The pleasant summer sun,The ripe fruits in the garden,You made them every one.The tall trees in the greenwood,The meadows where we play,The rushes by the water,To gather every day.You gave us eyes to see them,And lips that we might tellHow great is God Almighty,Who has made all things well.…

refresh your spirit

As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for You, my God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God? Psalm 42:1–2 (NIV) JUST AS A cool glass of water refreshes you on a hot summer day, Jesus the Living Water is the One who satisfies your spirit. When you feel drained, or out of sorts, reach out to Him. Ask Him to quench your spiritual thirst with His life-giving Spirit. Heavenly Father, when I am weary or feel empty and afraid, refresh my spirit with Your healing streams. REFLECTIONS…

take this lesson to heart

I was angry, good and angry, because of Israel’s sins. I struck him hard and turned away in anger, while he kept at his stubborn, willful ways. When I looked again and saw what he was doing, I decided to heal him, lead him, and comfort him. Isaiah 57:17–18 (MSG) THE OLD TESTAMENT has many instances of God’s followers experiencing hardship and learning life lessons the hard way. However, today’s verse shows that God is merciful. His teaching is clear and simple: sin leads to pain and obedience leads to blessing. When you take this lesson to heart, you spare yourself difficulties and experience His grace. Heavenly Father, thank You for guiding me on the path that leads me closer to You. REFLECTIONS…

when you don’t know what to do

Search me, O God, and know my heart. Psalm 139:23 (KJV) YOUR HEART AND soul is unsearchable to anyone but God. When reflecting on your life, there’s a natural tendency to be biased, justify your actions or explain your wants. When you seek God’s guidance, pray and ask for His perspective. Allow His responses to guide you. Lord, I am facing a difficult decision and am not sure which direction to take. Please light my path and help me make the right choice. Remove all doubts so that I may trust and follow Your guidance. REFLECTIONS…

living stone

You also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 2:5 (NIV) JESUS WANTS YOU to live by His Word, knowing that You are part of a wondrous structure—a solid, living, precious and permanent part of His architectural plan. You are a living rock in His spiritual house. Heavenly Father, I am a living rock and You are the Cornerstone, the Way, the Truth and the Life. REFLECTIONS…
