No matter the struggle or the trials of the day, God is still God. Lord Jesus, You reign in our life. Thank You for the countless opportunities You give us to glorify You.
On this day, how will we show the world what You mean in and to our life? You are the joy in a shared moment, You are the joy in a friendship, You are the joy in our pursuit of a better way. Lord! You are the joy of our life! What does our joy in You say to those who interact with us?
In Lincoln County we pray for the Gospel and the Good News to flourish, to run rampant. We pray for Your Good News to create a lasting impact to this community. We pray for over 6,694 people who have not chosen Your church in this county. May You expand, elevate and reinforce the credibility of Your church here and throughout Wyoming.
Lord, things will not always go “our” way. The things of this world will want press in upon us, seeking to dictate our impulsive instincts. Our knee jerk reaction is to act out in some kind of “justified” rebellion. But You light the path before us! We find delight in You!
“Even though the fig trees have no blossoms, and there are no grapes on the vines; even though the olive crop fails, and the fields lie empty and barren; even though the flocks die in the fields, and the cattle barns are empty, yet I will rejoice in the Lord! I will be joyful in the God of my salvation!” Habakkuk 3:17-18 NLT
Our joy is rooted in our salvation! You are Mighty to Save! When everything around us is closing in and we struggle to keep our head above water, let us remember and celebrate our salvation in You!
So when the day takes over, and pushes us around, may we stop and be reminded that Jesus holds our salvation victory in His hands! May our day be filled with joy! May our joy point to our salvation in Jesus Christ!
The time for change in our communities has come. In Jesus name we pray, amen.
