IDOK DEVOTION FOR MONDAY, MARCH 24, 2008
9 Now when He had spoken these things, while they watched, He was taken up, and a cloud received Him out of their sight.
10 And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as He went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel,
11 who also said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven.”
20 He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming quickly.”
Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
Even so come Lord Jesus.
Lord and Father, thank You for this Easter Sunday Day; thank You for the sermons preached and lived out today; thank You for relaxing fellowship with family; thank You for quiet conversations; for little girl giggles, and big boy smiles and rare teenage hugs; thank You for Momma-s who call to say I love you; thank You for daughters who text we love you too. And Lord this does not even begin to name the blessings and added to all this as the best of it all the sweet privilege and blessing of being able at every second, at every moment to dialogue with You. What a Saviour You Are!! Thank You. Thank You for these listed here, for the privilege to again bring them and each of their individual needs to You for Your Best to be given to each of them.
And again to pray for IDOK Troops and their protection today in mind and body and spirit, for their safe returns home; for the Peace of Israel, for the repentance of America; for exposure of sin and wrong not only in presidential candidates but all unrepentant leaders; for the election of Your choice for this Nation; for we Your People to wait before You until we are Filled with You Holy Spirit and empowered by You to testify to the World that Jesus Lives. Amen and amen.
His Ministry to You
