Glory Seed Devotionals, 2015: Year of Promise
We need you! Some of us are tired, LORD. Just as important as our need is for a Savior who through his birth, life, death, and resurrection more than 2000 years ago is our need for you as our constant companion. The circumstances surrounding our lives are so complex they are overwhelming and there is nothing and no one under the sun able to bring peace to our troubled spirits.
Come to us Lord Jesus. In our silent times we think about the 2016 with all its possibilities and we feel so inadequate so vulnerable. As much as we need your blessing of miracles it is your friendship and companionship we value more for they are like an Oasis in hot and dry desert. Many times in course of the past year we have asked you to whisk us away from our busy and conflicted lives yet deep in our heart we know we cannot and must not run away so please Lord meet us in our day to day life.
Create in us a new spirit Lord Jesus. With 2016 will come new challenges so each and every day we will need to stand and face them. And as we do they will mold us into new persons, if we face them alone we will become lonely persons, if we face them with resources of this world we will become worldly, if we face them with the resources of your kingdom we will become your children.
Please Lord Jesus help us walk in ways that give you the Glory. The world needs to see it has not been left to itself and our greatest desire for 2016 is for you to be in the forefront of our lives not in prideful way but in humble way so it will be you the world will see not us. Please Lord Jesus take your rightful in the forefront of our lives for all to see that we do not struggle alone or in vain.
Create in us a new vision. Help us never to forget that each and every person born into the world has been created in the image and likeness of God. When our eyes refuse to acknowledge the kinship of all we meet please remove the scales from our eyes that diffuse the Celestial Light that radiates from each life no matter how dim it has become.
Lord Jesus no matter how hard we try to be faithful to you it is inevitable we will fail so please forgive our inadequacies and our failures. And Lord if this is the year we will be called home we will go willingly not because we want to escape but because we hunger to be with you in a complete and perfect way.
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might!
Grace and PEACE, Amen!
