Friday, September 17, 2010 — IDOK Devotion
Just a quick hello and thank you for your prayers for my brother, William. We all are resting easier tonight and with all our hearts want to be resting even easier tomorrow night – with the blood clot gone, the stint textbook perfectly replaced and William going home on Saturday morning to gloriously recuperate. Your prayers in that direction are truly coveted.
Between praying, pacing, phone calls and blog posting and blog reading, I watched some Christian television programming today and heard some good stuff — too bad my thoughts are too foggy to share right now! 🙂
But this I do remember – Scripture sustains my soul.
What Scriptures have given you strength lately? Here are a few of mine.
This one particularly: My grace is sufficient for you. Say it, believe it and the mind does find rest.
2 Corinthians 12 NKJV: 9 And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. source
Psalm 145: (New American Standard Bible)17The LORD is righteous in all His ways and kind in all His deeds. 18The LORD is near to all who call upon Him, to all who call upon Him in truth. source
Philippians 4: (New American Standard Bible) 13I can do all things through Him who strengthens me. source
In Mark 6:31 the LORD gave the Disciples an invitation to Come away – to rest. I shall heed it shortly.
This day is far spent; bodies are tired and minds too; and, Father, You have been faithful. Thank You. Holy Spirit, I ask You to minister these Scriptures and others to our IDOKs in JESUS’ NAME. Amen and amen.
