Rebuke from the Wise? Or Continual Praise by the Masses
Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for the many things that make up our reality in this world we live in. Things that are so interesting when I stop to look closely at them. This morning it was interesting how an apple packed last night inside a sealed zip-lock bag was completely wet this morning while still in that small sealed bag. And what is even more interesting is that it is water that appeared on the apple! Water is so interesting in all its many forms … especially snow, sleet, drizzle and mist. And thank you for the scripture to use for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:
It is better to hear the rebuke of the wise, than for a man to hear the song of fools. (Ecclesiastes 7:5)
Lord, it’s me again. I’m here as usual to pray on behalf of Lindsey. And today, Lindsey, is a serious reminder for you from King Solomon. In Ecclesiastes he included this serious insight into how to stay on track on the path God has set before us. He looks at things you may hear today. If you have godly people around you and you start getting a bit off track, they may rebuke you for what you are saying or doing. Then you could just go look at your facebook or youtube and listen to many many people signing your praise. Solomon tells you which is better. Seek out good godly friends who will watch out for you Lindsey. And then consider their rebuke as far more precious than a thousand people singing your praise that day. And we will give the glory to God. Glory. The Glory is all his. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
A Good Adviser
Heavenly Father – today I thank you for uniqueness! Yes, just looking around at your creation it seems obvious that you highly value uniqueness. When you created dogs, you didn’t create just one kind, but hundreds. When you created birds, you didn’t create just one kind, but thousands. More than ten thousand kinds of butterflies and more than a hundred thousand kinds of flowers! And though each person is created in your image, all the billions of people are each unique, with their own special gifts and talents and each is highly valued. Thank you for caring for us so much Lord. And thank you for the scripture from 2 Chronicles chapter 24 to use in my prayer for your talented daughter, Lindsey:
2 And Joash did that which was right in the sight of the Lord all the days of Jehoiada the priest.
17-18 Now after the death of Jehoiada came the princes of Judah, and made obeisance to the king. Then the king hearkened unto them. And they left the house of the Lord God of their fathers, and served groves and idols: and wrath came upon Judah and Jerusalem for this their trespass.
Lord, today I pray a big prayer for the daughter you love. I pray that you surround her with good advisers. Scriptures show us how important a good adviser is. While Jehoida was advising Joash he did what was right in the sight of the Lord. But after Jehoida died, the king was persuaded to listen to his princes and left the Lord to worship idols instead. Lord, I pray that you would provide Lindsey with godly advisers. Give her great discernment to determine which advice to pay heed to. Lord, be their guide this day, this month, this coming year. And we will give you the glory. All the glory is yours Lord. Glory! I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen. (more…)
