A daughter of God

A chance to reconsider what God has asked of you and to do it

Heavenly Father, good morning. It finally is feeling like Spring. Thank you for the change of seasons. Thank you for the winter that helps me to appreciate spring more. Thank you for your Word and for the stories that Jesus told, even the ones that I don’t think I fully understand yet (and I ask you for further understanding). And thank you for this particular story that I think I finally figured out, at least partially:

But what think ye? A certain man had two sons; and he came to the first, and said, Son, go work to day in my vineyard. He answered and said, I will not: but afterward he repented, and went. And he came to the second, and said likewise. And he answered and said, I go, sir: and went not. Whether of them twain did the will of his father? They say unto him, The first. (Matthew 21:28-31a)

Lord, it’s me. Here I am! You asked me to pray and to keep on praying for your daughter you love so much. And so I am. I am praying another prayer for you today Lindsey. Today I believe I am to pray that you jump at the chance to do something God has asked you before but somehow never got done. Or the chance to go somewhere God asked you before but that you hesitated and didn’t go. I am praying for you today Lindsey, that you recognize this and jump at the chance that God gives you to reconsider and do it now (even though previously you had told him “no” or “I can’t”). And I pray that the Lord would give you the courage to do just that.  I pray that he would show you the path you need to take and that he would make it very clear to you. I pray that obstacles would be removed for you. And I pray that God would give you the words when you need them. And we will give all the glory to God. All the glory is his. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen

Voice:
But I will tell you a story, and you can tell Me what you make of it: There was a man who had two sons. He said to his first son,

Father: Go and work in the vineyard today.

First Son:  No, I will not.

But later the first son changed his mind and went.  Then the father went to his second son.

Father: Go and work in the vineyard today.

Second Son: Of course, Father.

But then he did not go. So which of the sons did what the father wanted?

Chief Priests and Elders (answering at once)The first.

HCSB:
“But what do you think? A man had two sons. He went to the first and said, ‘My son, go, work in the vineyard today.’

“He answered, ‘I don’t want to!’ Yet later he changed his mind and went.  Then the man went to the other and said the same thing.

“‘I will, sir,’ he answered. But he didn’t go.

“Which of the two did his father’s will?”

The first,” they said.

KJV translation note

The King James Version is a beautiful translation of the original Hebrew and Greek, however I sometimes find Old English hard to understand fully. 1 or 2 other translations can help clarify what it is saying so I can understand it. More Info CLICK: References
