Tuesday, October 5, 2010 — IDOK Devotion
Praying for These, please click here to review the names. (new feature, you may now print our list from our PfT page.)
A question. Have you, are you disappointed about anything? Yes? Then as Children of the King, we have ONE option. Journey said: ” . . . model the benefits of laying disappointment at the Creator’s feet, then asking Him to display His power and reveal His plan.”
Journey was primarily speaking to parents, encouraging us to model for our children taking our disappointments to the LORD, spilling them out before Him in all our anguish, and then arising from our heap to walk in faith, trusting Him for a better outcome than we had planned.
2 Corinthians 12: (New American Standard Bible) 8Concerning this I implored the Lord three times that it might leave me. 9And He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness” Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me. 10Therefore I am well content with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, with difficulties, for Christ’s sake; for when I am weak, then I am strong.
Thank You, ABBA, that bringing our disappointments to You, trusting that Your Word is true, that You are True and Your plan exceeds anything that we have imagined. I commend our IDOKs to You this morning for strength and courage to entrust every disappointment to You. We trust You with our IDOK Troops, our Praying for These list, the November elections, the salvation of America, the reviving of the Church, the Peace and Safety of Israel and every concern in our hearts. And specifically I am thinking of Elaine this morning for strength and blessing and comfort and peace and health. Amen and amen in JESUS MIGHTY NAME.
Holy hugs, kt
