Almighty God, I come before You, once again, requesting that You prepare me for the day ahead. I pray that You forgive me of all sins, whether they be of thought, word or deed and I thank You for bringing me to the end of the 10th week in 2021. There are 42 left to go! I don’t know what this year has to offer, but I place it all in Your hands. I trust in You.
Today, my request is that it will resonate in my spirit how powerful Your Word is and in turn be brought closer to You. I thank You for the Holy Bible and Your promises held within its pages. It tells me things which fill me with both fear and joy. However(!), I have a hope in glory! I pray that I will go from glory to glory. Even though there is so much going on in the world, I’m reminded of Your plans, which are not to harm but to prosper me and to give me hope, a future and an expected end. I place the futures of myself; blood family; spiritual family; and those who do not yet know You as their God, before You. May I be led into conversations, by Your Holy Spirit, so others will realise how much You love them and the plan You have for me is also for them. All they have to do is hear, accept and believe. Help me to also pass on the knowledge of You and Your power with boldness, strength and courage.
17 “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.
18 For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.Matthew 5:17-18 (AMPC)
In the beginning [before all time] was the Word (Christ), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God Himself.John 1:1 (AMP)
And when they had prayed, the place where they were meeting together was shaken [a sign of God’s presence]; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak the word of God with boldness and courage.Acts 4:31 (AMP)
12 For the Word that God speaks is alive and full of power [making it active, operative, energizing, and effective]; it is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating to the dividing line of the breath of life (soul) and [the immortal] spirit, and of joints and marrow [of the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and sifting and analyzing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart.Hebrews 4:12 (AMPC)
20 Now may the God of peace [Who is the Author and the Giver of peace], Who brought again from among the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, by the blood [that sealed, ratified] the everlasting agreement (covenant, testament),
21 Strengthen (complete, perfect) and make you what you ought to be and equip you with everything good that you may carry out His will; [while He Himself] works in you and accomplishes that which is pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ (the Messiah); to Whom be the glory forever and ever (to the ages of the ages).
Amen (so be it).Hebrews 13:20:21 (AMPC)
