And whosoever shall give to
drink unto one of these
little ones a cup of cold
water only in the name of a
disciple, verily I say unto you,
he shall in no wise lose his reward.
Father, may Your unfailing love be our comfort, according to Your promise to Your sevants. Let Your compassion come to us, Your children in this nation, and to all of our American heroes, that we may live, for Your law is our delight. Our soul faints with longing for Your salvation, but we have put our hope in Your Word. Our God is in heaven; He does whatever pleases Him. Lord, sometimes our only answer will be that You are sovereign. Your Word says that the death of Your saints is absolutely precious to You. One day we will have all the answers. But until then, we must trust that You know best. Help us to believe this even when we don't feel this. In Jesus name, we pray, Amen
Amen to your prayer for our Heroes and our beloved Nation.
Having two healthy eyes is not enough to see clearly. I know this from experience. After a series of eye surgeries for a torn retina, both eyes could see well but they refused to cooperate with each other. One eye saw things far away and the other saw things close up. But instead of working together, they fought for supremacy. Until I could get new prescription glasses 3 months later, my eyes remained unfocused.
Something similar happens in our view of God. Some people focus better on God when they see Him as close upwhen they think of Him as intimately present in their daily life. Other Christians see God more clearly as far away or far beyond anything we can imagine, ruling the universe in power and majesty.
While people disagree about which view is best, the Bible works like a prescription lens helping us to see that both are correct. King David presents both views in Psalm 145: The Lord is near to all who call upon Him (v.18) and Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised; and His greatness is unsearchable (v.3).
Thankfully, our Father in heaven is near to hear our prayers yet so far above us in power that He can meet every need.
Read: Psalm 145
I join in prayer for our heroes and nation!
Yes! May our military men and women and our U.S. citizenry have a full understanding of God’s mercy, patience and eternal life!
