Happy Jesus Day!
Precious and Almighty God, thank you for keeping us safe from all hurt, harm, and danger this week. So many lost their lives and are not here to give you thanks. No matter where we turned, trouble was everywhere (2 Corinthians 4:8-18). Lord, teach us how to respond to problems by giving thanks to You. Your Word assures us that You are always there with us. You are the Blessed overseer of all things, and nothing escapes Your attention in our life. You have given us every tool and spiritual blessing to fight against those things that try to steal our peace. You’ve promised us that we can come to You when stress and burdens try to weigh us down. You will give us rest. Lord, I ask you to provide us with help and strength for healing (Proverb 17:22). A cheerful heart is good medicine. We know the enemy wouldn’t fight so hard against us if we weren’t making a difference for Your kingdom. He is trying to stop us to keep us from reaching the blessing that’s before us. Help us, Lord, learn how to fight with the mighty hand of God so we can stop wasting time spinning our wheels.
