Reading a devotion that I wrote more than six (6) years ago (click HERE to read it) words found in Proverbs 16 have seized me and will not let go. I don’t want them to. I want them to lay hold to me and transform me. Look with me.
Proverbs 16 Amplified Bible (AMP)
3 Roll your works upon the Lord [commit and trust them wholly to Him; He will cause your thoughts to become agreeable to His will, and] so shall your plans be established and succeed.
He will cause your thoughts to become agreeable to His will
What would it look like for my thoughts, your thoughts, to be agreeable to ABBA’s will on a continually consistent basis? What would life be like? What would relationships be like? Would the climate change in our homes, in our communities, in our Nation? Would it?
Any thoughts you’d care to share?
I am praying for Regie today. He is having a heart cath this Friday morning. And I’m praying for protection for Americans who love America and who are in danger from those who hate America. These are perilous times.
2 Timothy 3 New King James Version (NKJV)
1 But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come:
2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good,
4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!
ABBA, You always hear the prayers of Your children. Thank You. I pray You begin to hear more prayers. More of Your children praying fervent prayers without ceasing. And right now I commit Regie’s heart cath to You, for it to be successful, for it to be very good news, for You to grant him restoration, a very favorable outcome I pray. Words are not coming easily, ABBA. Events in Libya and Egypt, the players in this evil desecration of life, Americans in danger, it’s too much for me to get my soul around. HOLY SPIRIT, intercede for us; intercede for Americans around this globe in places of conflict and hatred, protect them please and LORD JESUS please come quickly and soon and put an end to this hatred. And while we wait for You, JESUS, we want to occupy as You have told us to. Help us commit our works to You and allow You to cause us to be agreeable with Your Will in us and through us. And thank You for reminding me of others; thank You for what You have done for them and what You will yet do. And for each who gather here for prayer, I ask for strength meet for this day for them and for abundant love for You and others in JESUS name.
Blessings, Friends +++
