Are you in a tough spot right now? Oh, I am sorry. May I pray for you? Here is 2 Corinthians 6:1-8, personalized for you.
I beg you, please don’t squander one bit of this marvelous life God has given you. God hears your call in the nick of time; the day you need him, he is there to help.
Well, now is the right time to listen, the day to be helped. Don’t put it off; don’t frustrate God’s work by showing up late, throwing a question mark over everything.
Our work as God’s servants gets validated—or not—in the details.
People are watching us as we stay at our post, alertly, unswervingly . . . in hard times, tough times, bad times; when we’re beaten up, jailed, and mobbed; working hard, working late, working without eating; with pure heart, clear head, steady hand; in gentleness, holiness, and honest love;
when we’re telling the truth, and when God’s showing his power; when we’re doing our best setting things right; when we’re praised, and when we’re blamed; slandered, and honored; true to our word, though distrusted; ignored by the world, but recognized by God…
(From 2 Corinthians 6:1-8, MSG)
Prayer- Father we trust you. Help us in this hard, tough spot to honour you in the way we face it. Amen.
