Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord. —Psalm 27:14


Thoughts on Today's Verse...

If there is anything we don't like to do, it's wait. Maybe that is why God is so interested in us learning to do it! There is something purifying about remaining strong in tough times and remaining faithful when ill winds blow. So God gives us times of waiting to see if our search is really for him or merely for something new or easy.
 
 
For we are God's handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do(Ephesians 2:10).

Let's live up to what God has made us to be!


           
Today's Prayer
October 18, 2018
 
Loving Father, I know you have waited for me so many times — for me to show my faith, repent of my sins, grow in holiness, come to you in prayer, act more mature, give to those who cannot return my care... Help me as I wait for you to show me the way with my decisions, to act to relieve my need, and to reveal your presence in my loneliness. I really do seek you with all my heart. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

Today's Encouraging Words
October 18, 2018

When you seem to be in the darkest times of your life, let your praise to God sound the loudest. Let the enemy know you’re not afraid of the dark.



 
“But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions — it is by grace you have been saved.”  Ephesians 2:4-5

If you would like to accept Jesus as Lord of your life, you can pray the following prayer:


Lord, I confess that I have sinned against You and ask You to forgive me of my sins.  I’m sorry that my sin has hurt You and other people in my life.  I acknowledge that I could never earn salvation by my good works, but I come to You and trust in what Jesus did for me on the cross.

I believe that You love me and that Jesus died and rose again so that I can be forgiven and come to know You.  I ask You to come into my heart and be Lord of my life.  I trust You with everything, and I thank You for loving me so much that I can know You here on earth and spend the rest of eternity with You in heaven.
