Post 6…January 2023…What I pray for you

Friday, January 6, 2023

I pray for you that If you don’t get everything you want in life, you think of the very things you don’t get that you really do deserve! 

I pray that you never look at what you have lost but you look at what you have left and what you gained you really didn’t deserve to have

I pray that you have enough happiness in your life and know that all good and perfect gifts in life come from God

I pray that you have enough trials to keep you strong and that you go to God always for your needs and strength to make it through anything.  God is there for each of us.  Take advantage of that.

I pray that you have just enough sorrow to keep you human but that your sorrow will never break you, and that God will give you the strength to endure.  May you never have your spirit feel so broken you can’t go to God and ask for Him to give you His peace and understanding. No one wants sorrow.  We can go to God and allow Him to give us peace even in the midst of any storm we go through in life.

I pray that you have enough hope and faith to win the race of life and spend eternity in heaven

I pray that you have enough failures in life to keep you humble but learn from everything you go through so you can help others. Failures (through man’s eyes) are not failures but opportunities in god’s eyes.  Maybe God wants you to change something first in your life or what you are trying to accomplish.  So what if you fail here on earth in the eyes of man…it is God you need to please and just keep on keeping on and going on. 

I pray that you have enough success to keep you eager but that you always know and give God the credit for all the good things in your life.

I pray you have enough friends to give you comfort and love, but that you always know God must be first in everything and everyone in your life

I pray that you always have a great job and enough money to care for yourself and your family.  That your needs are met (not your greeds), and that you find ways to help others because your own needs were met

I pray that each day of your life is filled with purpose, love, joy, and peace and that not one of you will be lost

I pray for love, guidance, and encouragement to each of you.

I pray that every day the Lord blesses you in some way even when you don’t yet see it.  We surely don’t get in this life what we do deserve.  Jesus paid the price for our sins, so let us now honor Him for what He did to give us the opportunity to be saved.  We should all jump for joy each and every day for what Jesus did for us.

Jesus said on the cross, “It is finished”.  What amazement that truly is.  His atoning work completed: Jesus was now ready to be received by God, the Father, back in heaven and finish up the details for coming for His bride/the church.  Jesus said in Luke 23:45-47 “Father, into your hands I commit my Spirit”.  Thank you Lord!  What an awesome God we have and can serve. 

You do realize that even if you reject Jesus…every breath you still have in you is a gift of His.  He provides so much to each of us every day.  I thank Him for all He has done for me and my family.  I hope you do as well because you have no greater love or friend.  He has offered you salvation if you have not yet received Him as Lord.  Take that seriously.  Tomorrow might not be offered to you, and you don’t know how many more times that He will offer you heaven.  You have been offered right now…this very moment a chance to change your destiny.  Take it.  Stop rejecting Him.  He is drawing you to Him.  Take that seriously.  Nothing on this earth can ever love you more or offer you more. 

Now, may the God of creation bless you, draw you, guide you, protect you, and may you find peace in knowing Him. 

God bless you.
