We see that the Lord is the one that comes to save. He is the one that saves His people. Be reassured today that He is on your side. He is working for you. He is for you! Think about that. The God of Heaven, the God of all that is, both seen and unseen, is on your side. Is pulling for you. Will stand with you! Rejoice, the Lord today stands with His people.
New Testament Lesson
Paul reminds us today that no one receives the reward without first working for it. No athlete wins with prize without the prior training and completion. It is the work put for that makes the achievement possible.
In faith, we must put feet to our faith. We must work for what we believe. We must be about God's work. We will have hard times. We will have struggles. We have time when nothing goes right.
But, don't give up! Keep trying and pushing! Keep working! Keep doing! The Lord is one your side, and it is the effort put forth that makes the reward that much sweeter.
We see today that Children have a special place in the heart of God. Thank you to all of you that work with our children. Thank you for taking the time, and effort to work with these precious ones.
And, may we have that childlike faith. Just a child trusts in their parents, so, today, may we trust in our God.
