Our Lord, when something is important to us, we seek it out. If there is a void we seek to fill it. If something is deficient or lacking, we seek to build it up. If it matters to us, we pursue it.
We continue to seek Gods care in Carbon County and throughout Wyoming. County by county – through, with, and for – each county. We all matter to each other. Thank You Lord for the amazing people in Carbon County. Continue to grow them in and by Your Spirit.
How important are we to the Creator of all things? If we are (and indeed we are) why then would the Most Holy of Beings, the Deity, The God of Heaven and Earth, seek us out?
Lord, You truly care for us. The care You push towards us is revealed in Your love for us. Praise You Lord!
““I have loved you even as the Father has loved me. Remain in my love. When you obey my commandments, you remain in my love, just as I obey my Father’s commandments and remain in his love. I have told you these things so that you will be filled with my joy. Yes, your joy will overflow! This is my commandment: Love each other in the same way I have loved you. There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. You are my friends if you do what I command. I no longer call you slaves, because a master doesn’t confide in his slaves. Now you are my friends, since I have told you everything the Father told me. You didn’t choose me. I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce lasting fruit, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask for, using my name. This is my command: Love each other.” John 15:9-17 NLT
Praise You Lord for choosing us! You appointed us to care. You appointed us produce the necessary attributes of care.
Joy produces care! Obedience in You germinates and joy becomes the seed, care then becomes the fruit, a fruit we can freely share with one another. That type of fruit sustains a community. It feeds it with a special type of nourishment. Your body thrives in the care.
Praise You Lord! Praise You! Thank You for the abundant blessings found in a community. Thank You for all You to do to seek and care for us.
Let us pray for the 10,170 people in Carbon County who have yet to connect with a gospel church. We pray for the people connected in the body through, Platte Valley Lutheran Church, Trinity Assembly of God and of River of Grace Bible Church (Snake River Community Church) in Baggs. May Your Living Water flow through every community. May our Lord expand, elevate and reinforce the credibility of the local church in this county.
The time to seek His care has come. In Jesus name we pray, amen.
