Daily Prayer #1- Father, Let Me Rest in Your Spirit

The Life of a 21st Century Prophet
Standard

Father, let me rest in Your Spirit,

Let me rest in Your faithfulness and let me rest in Your promises. My soul is truly Yours and Yours alone. May I be faithful to You also.

I thank You for Your love and your support.

I thank You for Your edge of protection and the angels that guard me still.

I thank You for all that I see and all that I cannot yet see.

You oh Lord are forever with me. You oh Lord are forever in me.

Holy Spirit, You have been a constant companion and unwavering friend, even in times of my waivering.

You never left me.

You never forsake me.

You never loved me less.

Oh Mighty God of Daniel, You have risen many times for me and my enemies have been scattered. May You reign forever, MIghty God. May You reign forever.

My Love is in You.

My peace is in You.

My soul looks up to You and I am Yours forever.

In Jesus Christ name, I pour out my heart to You.

Amen.

How To Find Strength in Brokenness

Standard

There is an oxymoron throughout the Bible. It says that brokenness is strength. How can this be? How can brokenness be strength? In order to use men and women to their fullest extent, the Lord has to break His servants so that they might have a new kind of strength that is not human in origin. It is strength in spirit that is born only through brokenness.

  • Paul was broken on the Damascus road.
  • Peter was broken after Jesus was taken prisoner.
  • Jacob was broken at Peniel.
  • David was broken after his sin with Bathsheba.

The list could go on of those the Lord had to break in different ways before they could be used in the Kingdom.

When we are broken, we see the frailty of human strength and come to grips with the reality that we can do nothing in our own strength. Then, new strength emerges that God uses mightily. God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble.

Do not fear brokenness, for it may be the missing ingredient to a life that emerges with a new kind of strength and experience not known before. Pray for a broken and contrite heart that God can bless.
