Promises from Above

Seasons Prayer JournalGod’s promises are everywhere in His word. Some are promises for specific people, some for an entire nation, some for His children (you and me), and even some for the entire world, through His amazing common grace. The verses we will look at this week are promises from all over scripture. Make sure to consider the context of each verse. To whom was it written to and why? Is there a universal truth to the passage? How it could apply to you today? Store these promises in your heart. Write them on your mind through memorization and repetition. Call on them when you need help on the battlefield. God is always ready with his armor. Tell God how big your problems are, but always remember to tell your problems how big your God is!

Look up one verse per day this week and prayerfully consider how you should respond to it.

Day 1: Jeremiah 29:11

Day 2: 1 John 1:7

Day 3: Romans 8:28

Day 4: Proverbs 3:5-6

Day 5: 1 Corinthians 10:13

Day 6: 1 John 1:9

Day 7: Matthew 6:33

Patience with my Daftness ~ A Prayer

You have been more than patient with my daftness. You deserve my praise and adoration. You deserve my everything yet I sit here day after day dealing with silly worldly issues. NOTHING. These issues are nothing! Nothing compared to my commission. Nothing compared to my stewardship. I am an ambassador for you, Christ and here I sit not doing my job. Forgive me for getting caught up in this world and all the drama that comes with it. Father, today I will start again. Today I resolve to see this new day and simply start.

Quote of the Day ~ R.C. Sproul on Prayer

“Prayer does change things, all kinds of things. But the most important thing it changes is us. As we engage in this communion with God more deeply and come to know the One with whom we are speaking more intimately, that growing knowledge of God reveals to us all the more brilliantly who we are and our need to change in conformity to Him. Prayer changes us profoundly.”
― R.C. Sproul, The Prayer of the Lord
