As the year began to unfold, along with it came the ensuing pandemic overtaking, the accelerating Presidential race, arising racial justice challenges and the facing of personal family issues. Abide took on new meaning calling me to live with these uncharted obstacles…I had to “abide” these by “abiding in Christ”.
Watching the hand of God at work in ways that were unfamiliar and through challenges not easily understood were now a reality. As questions like “what is going on?” swirled through my thoughts and prayers, these directives have emerged.
- Watch for the usually insignificant signs telling us that God is in this…He is quietly at work!
Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work
within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.
Ephesians 3:20 NLT
- Walk with Jesus each moment praying through each unfolding circumstance – He is always at work!
all the more evident in us. 2 Corinthians 4:12 The Message
- Wait on God for His time and His answers…He is already at work! Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord. Psalm 27:14 NIV
PRAYER: I will watch for you, walk with you, and wait for you abiding in you for you are at work in my world and in me. Thank you, Lord. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
