Word for Today
The Word (88)-Do not focus on your challenges.
“We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body” (2Corinthian 4:8-10).
Never focus your mind and thoughts on your challenges but rather, focus on the Author & Finisher of your faith. God is able to make all grace abound. There is no situation He cannot take care of. Have faith in God in Christ Jesus. Learn to read and meditate on the word of God. Stop running around. Your problems today shall become testimony tomorrow if you faint not.
“Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth” (Colossians 3:2).
Father, please, give me the grace not to focus on my challenges but on your PERSON in Jesus name. Amen.
Father, I pray that righteousness be established in your church and in our different nations all over the world in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
Father, please continue to expose every act of hypocrisy and evil in our societies and bring the perpetrators to shame in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
