Our last day of our month long prayer for Wyoming. Lord, we are amazed in Your presence. We are humbled in Your Throne and yet somehow elevated in our relationship with You.
We give all praise to the Lord Jesus Christ! The Son of Man! We find salvation in the Risen King!
What would we do without You Lord? Why is it that we look to focus on how horrible a situation is? Before we ever trust or even think about strategizing in scripture, we’ve already decided in our mind it’s too insurmountable to overcome. Do we really think You’re that small, I shall hope not!
After walking through dark valleys of our life, You care for us. You give us rest to prepare and reflect before another trial that’s heading our way, then You tend to the wounds our souls received in battle. You know the negative influence situations can have on our spirit.
“You prepare a feast for me in the presence of my enemies. You honor me by anointing my head with oil. My cup overflows with blessings. Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will live in the house of the Lord forever.” Psalms 23:5-6 NLT
In a trying circumstance, we tend to see the bad as a bigger presence than the good. We are quick to point out all the negative ramifications of worse case scenario. Seeing the good doesn’t mean the bad is not there or that we’re not aware of it, it just doesn’t rule our decision making.
Do we really believe that life is perfect and nothing will ever go wrong?
I’m gonna live in Your House Lord! In Your House I’m taught that I can do good to conquer evil, that darkness can’t extinguish light, that truth needs no defense.
When I put that in the forefront, Your goodness and unfailing love will never stop pursuing me. What does true joy feel like Lord?
The sheep that’s been cared for by the shepherd trust his guidance. The guidance of a shepherd leads to joy for the sheep.
Lord, thank You for the people of Sublette County. May Your blessings shine upon them. We pray for the 6,841 people who have yet to connect into a gospel church in this county. We pray with those connected through Wilderness Church! May our Lord expand, elevate and reinforce the credibility of the local church in this county.
The time to stop following the behaviors of the world have come, the time to live a new life has come! We pray in the name of Christ Jesus! Amen.
