Posted on 05/31/2014 6:13:33 AM PDT by Irish Rose
Father, we pray for all the men and women in our military, that You would be their rest.
O LORD, our hearts are not proud and our eyes are not haughty. We do not concern ourselves with great matters or things too wonderful for us. But entrusting all this to You, we have stilled and quieted our souls; like a weaned child with its mother, like a weaned child are our souls within us. You, O Lord, give us rest, and the yoke that is easy to bear. In repentance and rest is our salvation; in quietness and trust is our strength. We put our hope in the LORD, both now and forevermore, in the Name of Jesus Christ, who has given us His peace, Amen.
A call to prayer.
Prayers always for our Heroes.
Amen to your prayer for Our American heroes and for our nation.
Read: Isaiah 1:1-4,12-18
Iwas driving my son home from school one day when snow began to fall. The cottony fluff came down steadily and quickly. Eventually, we slowed to a stop, boxed in by traffic. From inside our vehicle, we watched a transformation take place. Dark patches of soil turned white. Snow softened the sharp outlines of buildings; it coated the cars around us, and accumulated on every tree in sight.
That snowfall reminded me of a spiritual truth: Just as that snow covered everything in sight, Gods grace covers our sin. But grace doesnt just cover sin, grace erases sin. Through the prophet Isaiah, God appealed to the Israelites, saying, Come now, and let us reason together . . . though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow (Isa. 1:18). When God made this promise, His children had a painful problem with sin. God compared them to a physical body plagued with wounds and welts and open sores, not cleansed or bandaged or soothed with oil (v.6 niv).
As bad as their sin was, God was willing to extend His grace to them. As His children today, we have the same assurance. Sin may stain our lives, but when we repent and confess it, we have the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of [Gods] grace (Eph. 1:7).
