I pray for all of you friends and family, that in whatever situation you face today, that God will give you the strength to get through the day.
I pray that he will bring peace and calm to your mind. Trust in Him, and not in your circumstances, have faith that He will bring you through it.
For “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Heb. 11:1.
It is God who is our strength in times of trial. We are told in Ephesians 6 to put on the whole armor of God so that we can resist. Faith is the shield that protects us from the enemy. The first line of defense. We are also called to pray, pray continuously in our spirits.
Have you developed a mind of prayer in your life? It is something that I’m working on. It is not an easy habit to develop, especially when your life has lots of moving parts, and you have many roles to play each day. But we must overcome the tendency to be lazy and distracted when it comes to prayer. It is something that we need to practice each day, so that we can develop it into a habit that we don’t even have to think about. It will eventually come naturally to pray without ceasing throughout your day.
