November 7 Prayer
Blessed is the one who trusts in You, O Lord.
‘I have learned the secret of being,... I have the strength for everything through Him who empowers me.’Philippians 4
As we arise and look into the day ahead there is a secret place to find and that place is right here inside of you.
In every circumstance and in every situation there is a dichotomy of being.
What we have and what we have not. Who we look to for help and who we already have as our help.
You have enough right now because Christ empowers you.
As we read the following verses by from
2 Corinth.6 :7-10
take in that dichotomy and surrender your situation to the ever present Christ who gives you the strength to do the next right thing.
“By the power of God working through us,...
Amid honor or dishonor,
slander or praise--
even when we are treated as deceivers and imposters--
we remain steadfast and true.
We are unknown nobodies whom everyone knows.
We are frequently at death’s door,
yet here we are, still alive!
We have been severely punished
yet not dead.
We may suffer, in sorrow
yet in every season we are always found rejoicing.
We may be poor,
yet enriching many.
We seem to have nothing,
yet in reality we possess all things.”
‘Lord may we find our secret pace with You today and trust that you have given us everything we need for this very hour and for this very day.
Thank you for your wisdom that will rise up and meet us and grant us the discernment that we ask for.
We rest in the knowledge and secret of being everything in You.
