All sport teams require a MUST-HAVE…it is the uniform. Entering the playing arena with a freshly laundered uniform signifying who they represent is the best way to start any competition.
There are certain significant, all-important, vital and timeless MUST-HAVE’s for our Christian journey. Here are three non-negotiables recorded by Paul in his writing to the church in Rome:
“Rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer…”
An attitude of HOPE! “To talk with God no breath is lost - talk on!” *
The will to be PATIENT! “To walk with God, no strength is lost - walk on!” *
A lifestyle of PRAYER! “To wait on God, no time is lost - wait on!” *
“God does not depend on our time. Our time is chronological and linear but God . . . is timeless. He will act at the fullness of His time. Our prayer . . . may not necessarily rush God into action, but . . . places us before Him in fellowship.” Samuel Enyia
PRAYER: Today I will climb into a freshly laundered spiritual uniform wearing your timeless MUST-HAVE’s. I align my time-sensitive needs with your timeless plan by remaining hopeful, practicing patience, and fellowshipping with you in steadfast prayer. In Jesus Name, Amen
OUR TIMELESS GOD IS EVER-PRESENT IN EACH LIFE CIRCUMSTANCE.
