Thorns and Thistles

Thank You for answered prayers yesterday, Father. I had prayed that You would work through me and I am grateful and humbled that you did. I have the day off from Kohl’s today but ask for Your blessings on my actions and interactions today. Use me as You will. Amen.

Hebrews 6:7-12 (<<click here)

Reading through this passage, Lord, it is obvious that our world is a “field [of] thorns and thistles” and many believe that condemnation and burning is just around the corner. Only You know if our pending judgment is imminent.

But, Lord, it is my heartfelt desire that regardless of what the future may hold, I want to “keep on loving others as long as life lasts” and my goal is “to inherit [Your] promises because of [my] faith and endurance.” v. 11-12

Lord, I’m not telling You anything by saying that our world is replete with evil on every possible level. But… we, Your followers, are in no way hindered from “loving others” and no matter how much it may want to, evil cannot snuff out our “faith” if we will just “endure” by abiding in You.

I would pray that love would be the victor in every circumstance of my life that my faith would come to the forefront. Lord, I know that life will continue to try and whittle away at my resolve, it will try and drain away the reserves of faith and love. But I would ask that You would continue to replenish my inventory, that whatever is drained away will be exceedingly replaced from Your infinite supply! Amen!!
