“For the word of the Lord is right and true; he is faithful in all he does” (Psalm 33:4).
The Word of the Lord is completely right and true. As we hear it and read it, He expects us to obey it. Our obedience to His Word will give joy to our hearts. Our lives will not be flooded with doubt and conflict, but with peace and great faith in His ability to overcome any circumstances the enemy would try to use to discourage us or cut in on the race we are running. Perhaps your heart or the heart of someone close to you is burdened or heavy at the moment. Pray for the Lord’s intervention and He will show you His faithfulness.
Faithful Father, help me to stand upon Your perfect word when I am tempted to forget how faithful you are. Give me a heart of humility to obey everything You have said. I want to be an obedient servant, trusting in You. Keep me from being discouraged or diverted by the devil. May Your Holy Spirit show Your faithfulness to others through me.
–By Kim Butts, author of The Praying Family (Creative Ways to Pray Together) and co-author with her husband, David, of Pray Like the King (Lessons from the Prayers of Israel’s Kings)
Pray for opportunities to build up and encourage any friends whose spirits may be sagging. Pray that the tongue will be an instrument of peace and not strife in your family life.
