Our Lord! Our God!
We give You all praise! For its You Jesus, who prepares us for Heaven! In the experiences of earth, You reveal the behaviors that we need to bring to Heaven and the ones that need to be burned in the devouring fire.
So let us rejoice in truth! For when truths are learned, our behaviors change! In Your truth, we discover how we can act, and behave, and learn, and apply, and pursue – now! We don’t have to wait for Heaven for this to happen, we are free now! So let us be free indeed!
Thank You Lord for coming to earth and teaching us first hand. Thank You for creating an intimate setting for us learn in. Thank You for showing us by example what You teach.
A difficult task will often hide a bigger reward than just merely completing the task. Completion isn’t the only goal our souls seek. What’s waiting to be revealed will bring us closer to a new understanding about ourselves in correlation towards each other.
“Consider it a great joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you experience various trials, because you know that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its full effect, so that you may be mature and complete, lacking nothing. Now if any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God — who gives to all generously and ungrudgingly — and it will be given to him.” James 1:2-5 CSB
Reward is in the education! The trials and difficult situations we face, or the frustrating “things” we are required to do in life, elevate our skill yes, but they also elevate our state of mind to a place that’s better prepared to handle new adventures.
What adventure awaits! What cause for celebration is yet to be revealed? What new joy is coming to our life?
May our learning lead to glorifying You, our Father in Heaven!
We thank You for the blessings in our beautiful state!
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 for growth through education has come. In Jesus name we pray, amen.
