I hope you will read these passages. They may be just what you need today.
And if your hearts are heavy with all the boasts you hear, if your soul cringes daily, allow verse 18 to remind you our Father is faithful and while He is full of mercy He is also JUST.
18 Let the lying lips be put to silence; which speak grievous things proudly and contemptuously against the righteous. (KJV)
Psalm 31 closes with this:
“23 Love the Lord, all His godly ones! The Lord watches over the faithful But fully repays the one who acts arrogantly.
24 Be strong and let your heart take courage, All you who wait for the Lord.” source
As Paul prayed for the people of Ephesus I offer this on our behalf today.
Father GOD, I pray today You will empower us with inner strength by Your Spirit; so that JESUS will live through us as we trust You and that we will be rooted and grounded in Your love for You and all Your people; that we will be given strength as Your people to grasp the breadth, height, and depth of Your love; to know beyond all-knowing and be filled with You, Holy Spirit. For we know and are confident that You are able to do more, beyond anything, we could ask or imagine. Thank You, Abba, for always hearing Your children when they pray.
Taken from Ephesians 3: 16-21
