Scripture Sunday 9.8.13

 The night is almost gone; the day of salvation will soon be here.
So remove your dark deeds like dirty clothes,
and put on the shining armor of right living.
~Romans 13:12, NLT~
    Thank you that we have a savior in a dark world. Thank you that we have a hope. Thank you that you give each of us 'a day of salvation'. I pray for those who have yet to experience their day of salvation...I ask in advance that you would soften their their eyes that they can see You clearly and realize their need for You...unplug their ears that they might hear Your wooing voice calling them. In advance I ask, Holy Spirit, that you would surround this person with Your presence at the moment when they face the most important decision of their accept Jesus' salvation.
Whoever you are...wherever you are in this vast world...know there is hope and a future for you. Remove your dark deeds, lay down your old ways, humbly at the feet of Jesus and He will cloth you in shining armor and clothes of righteousness. We all have a point in our lives when we can make that choice...I pray when your day of salvation comes, that you have the strength and humility to make the choice to accept it.
The night is fading...salvation is coming.

Scripture Sunday 9.1.13

But Lord, be merciful to us,
for we have waited for you.
Be our strong arm each day
and our salvation in times of trouble.
~Isaiah 33:2, NLT~
    We have waited on You...our hope and trust lie with You and Your promises. Be merciful to us in these times... times when it is hard to wait without seeing the fruits of our labor, or the things which our heart longs for. Be our strong arm each day...fight for us...wrestle with us against the forces that would seek to steal away that which we are waiting for...working for...trusting for. When trouble comes and difficulties assail us, be our salvation...preserve us and the dreams You have placed in our hearts...redeem what has been tampered with...deliver us.
