God is so much bigger than our requests. He has the power and might to turn mountains into pebbles. “He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him.” This morning we were reminded how Jabez, Solomon and Asa called on the Lord and received answers to their prayers. Jabez called for an enlarged territory and for God’s hand to be with him and keep him from evil. Solomon asked for wisdom and God delivered big time. Asa asked for help during a battle with the Ethiopians and his enemies were struck down. Let’s pray to God with His best interests in mind as we continue to pursue Him and strive to become more like Christ every day.
“We need to remind each other the only pursuit with a true and unshakable payoff is the pursuit of Christ.” (Scarlet Hiltibidal)
“Do not lack diligence in zeal; be fervent in the Spirit; serve the Lord.” (Romans 12:11)
This song reminds us to fan the flame that is the light of the world.
“Start a fire in my soul
Fan the flame and make it grow
So there's no doubt or denying
Let it burn so brightly
That everyone around can see
That it's You, that it's You that we need
Start a fire in me”
Have a great evening!
