“…let those who are suffering according to God’s will entrust themselves to a faithful Creator by continuing to do what is good.” 1Peter4:19 CJB.
“…humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, so that at the right time He may lift you up. Throw all your anxieties upon Him, because He cares about you…” 1 Peter 4:6 CJB.
It’s a peculiar time we are living in right now Father.
Apart…together…it is called, to whatever degree we practice it.
To some it is agreeable while to others it is a burden, to all it imposes on personal freedom and strains financial well being, tests relationships and exposes them for what they really are. All of us are searching for ways to adapt.
We pray to You Father, for hearts of acceptance that it is Your will we experience and endure these times, hearts of acceptance because we trust and believe and know that You care about us and You are working all things to the eternal good of those who trust… and continue to do what is good in Your eyes.
May we take the opportunity these times make available to us… to examine and reevaluate our lives and the ways we have been living them, examine and reevaluate what is really important to us and for us.
May we utilize this rearrangement of our time and use of it to engage with You more through prayer and Your Word.
May we indeed, humbly, cast our anxieties upon You but also give You praise and thanksgiving because You are our faithful Creator and at the right time You will lift us up.
Grant us patience Father, to trust in Your judgment and timing.
May this trust and reliance on You be a source of comfort and peace for us and may we experience joy in extending blessing and good towards one another.
Thank You Father for Your presence and the work You do in our lives.
To You be glory from… and the love of… all men.
In Yeshua’s name we pray,
