This morning, as I was reading through Ephesians, I stopped to pray for each of you who might read my blog. I don't know who is reached by the words I type, BUT God does. I don't know your circumstance in life...BUT The Almighty does. I don't know your children's future...BUT the Creator of the Universe does. I don't know ALL your sorrows, joys, fears or loves...BUT the Friend who sticks closer than a Brother does.
Even though I don't have a flashlight into your life, I do lift you before the throne of God and pray over all those UNKNOWNS. I pray Jeremiah 29:11-13 over each of you.
"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart.'
I am thankful for the many of you I DO know...For your Faithfulness in Jesus...for the consistent "Chasing After Him" that you do...For the Intentional Moments in your lives that you share with me and with others! Therefore, I am praying this today as well:
For this reason, because I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love toward all the saints, I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers, that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his great might that he worked in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come.(Eph 1:15-21)
May you shine your light for those around you as a testimony for what the Lord has and is doing in your life. May your families bathe in the blessings of a Christ-Following Mom/Dad, and may your friends know the JOY of True Friendship.
Grace and Peace be with you today!
