Called, Equipped and Never Alone…
Matthew 28:19-20 (NIV): “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age”.
Let us be determined this week to:
Trust God for wisdom and understanding that will guard our lives. We know that what goes on in our hearts and minds ultimately determines the direction of our lives (Proverbs 4:23). Let us ask God to give us humble hearts and sober minds, to obediently walk in His way everlasting.
Stand firm in our calling, allowing the peace of Christ to rule in our hearts. May we be a people who run our race with endurance, knowing our calling and knowing who we are in Christ. May we serve and love those who come alongside us as we do life together. In the strength, wisdom and power of God, may we never ever give up! Let’s ensure that the message of Christ, in all its richness, fills our lives (Colossians 3:15-16).
Remember that God is always with us and for us! We are never alone! Regardless of our circumstances, may we stay rooted in Christ, trusting in the promises of God! Let’s give thanks to the Lord, for He is good. His love is never-ending and He is with us until the end of time! (1 Chronicles 16:34)
Father, we thank You for today. We thank You that we can trust You. We give our work, our calling, our identity, and everything we need back to You Lord. We thank You for doing the work through us. Father, we lay aside every burden that so easily ensnares us and the sin that trips us up. Thank You that You are strong through us. With this encouragement, and the resurrection of Christ, and the Holy Spirit inside of us, we will walk the road that You have called us to walk.
Lord God Almighty, thank You that You are so good, merciful and patient with us. We glorify Your holy Name. Please Lord help us in our daily walk – that we may learn to develop a sober state of mind.
Heavenly Father, we come to You today and we thank You that You have chosen us to be Your disciples in this time. We thank You Lord for bringing us together, so that we can help each other.
Imagine God right there with you and speaking to you…
I am there – when you are alone;
I am there – when you are full of consternation;
I am there – when they reject you and cast you out;
I am there – when you cannot see any progress;
I am there – when you despair and are saddened;
I am there – when you are anxious and afraid;
I am there – when no one likes you;
I am there – when there seems to be a wall between you and your friend;
I am there – when you worry and cannot sleep;
I am there – when someone hurts you;
I am there – when you are in grave danger;
I am there – when you are sick and need help;
I am there – when you cannot bare your sorrow alone;
I am there – when your world falls apart;
I am there – when you need love and someone to confide in;
I am there – when you are suffering great pain;
I am there – when no one listens to you anymore;
I am there – when you can no longer stand upright from exhaustion;
I am there – when you have a bad conscience;
I am there – when you call on me;
I am there – when you die;
I am there – like an angel who protects you in times of great need;
I am there – like the sun that gives you warmth and joy;
I am there – like a father who makes you feel secure;
I am there – like a mother who feels with you;
I am there – like a heart that is always with you;
I am there – like an eye that always sees you;
I am there – like an arm that supports you;
I am there – like a cloud that envelops you with love;
I am there – like a hand that shows you the right way;
I am there – like a light that inspires you well;
I am there – like a voice that tells you;
That I shall be with you until the end of time.
Father, thank You so much that You created the stars. Thank you that You created so much more than that, and yet You care for us. Your desires for us, and Your plans for us are so much bigger than anything that we could ever imagine or put together here by ourselves. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
