Abba Father, I thank You for this day placed before me and give You all glory, honour and praise. I ask that You forgive me of all sins, whether seen and/or unseen; known and/or unknown; and mental or physical. As I stand before You, I ask that this day will be used for Your glory.
Today, I thank You, in advance, for the guidance needed as I go forward and share the good news. I ask for ways to be opened up both physically and spiritually, so that words spoken will either fall on fallow ground waiting for seeds to be sown, or be a preparation. Let today be the day for harvests to be reaped, and ways prepared for the future. Your Word says that Paul planted, Apollos watered and You gave the increase. I do all I do, by Your grace, Your might and Your power. It is not me that will speak, but You. Whatever stage of the process I am in today, I ask that Your will be done. I trust in You.
23 Thus says the Lord, “Let not the one who is wise and skillful boast in his insight; let not the one who is mighty and powerful boast in his strength; let not the one who is rich boast in his [temporal satisfactions and earthly] abundance;
24 but let the one who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows Me [and acknowledges Me and honors Me as God and recognizes without any doubt], that I am the Lord who practices lovingkindness, justice and righteousness on the earth, for in these things I delight,” says the Lord.
25 “Behold, the days are coming,” says the Lord, “when I will punish all who are circumcised [physically] and yet uncircumcised [spiritually]—Jeremiah 9:23-25 (AMP)
6 I planted, Apollos watered, but God [all the while] was causing the growth.
7 So neither is the one who plants nor the one who causes the growth.
8 He who plants and he who waters are one [in importance and esteem, working toward the same purpose]; but each will receive his own reward according to his own labour.
9 For we are God’s fellow workers [His servants working together]; you are God’s cultivated field [His garden, His vineyard], God’s building.1 Corinthians 3:6-9 (AMP)
14 We are not overstepping the limits of our province, as if we did not [legitimately] reach to you, for we were the [very] first to come even as far as you with the good news of Christ.
15 We do not go beyond our proper limit, boasting in the work of other men, but we have the hope that as your faith [in Christ and His divine power] continues to grow, our field among you may be greatly expanded [but still within the limits of our commission],
16 so that we may preach the gospel even in the lands beyond you, but not to boast in work already accomplished in another one’s field of activity.2 Corinthians 10:14-16 (AMP)
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)
