With all of the turmoil and strife that we all see around the world, and unfortunately even in the United States, it’s very easy to become discouraged and wonder if it will ever end and if it does how will it end. It’s a product of human nature to have these feelings and doubts. But fortunately, God is still in control and we can find out in the Book of Revelation exactly how things will wind up for us in time. This book also has lots of strong encouragement for us as we go through our life on earth. A friend sent me a prayer by the Apostle Paul found in Eph. 3:14-21 that gives us some good guidelines. Paul provides hope for all of us as we deal with daily problems and adversity in our lives.
For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height— to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
That can be our prayer for our family, our friends and our neighbors. I pray that in years to come that each of us will desire to love our Lord more and be eager to learn His ways and as certain His will for our lives. We should want to grow stronger in Him and to allow more of His power to work in and through us. May we never forget that He is able to do so much more for us, in us, and through us than we could ever imagine or comprehend.
So in good times and bad, and for those times in between, let us all thank God in advance for all that He will do through us today, in the immediate future and in the years to come. We simply have to trust God – be obedient to His commands – and do His will in our lives. That may sound too simple for some of our readers, but I can tell you it’s a powerful truth and will work if we let it.
