1 John 3:1-3 (KJV)
1 Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.
2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.
3 And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.

Oh Lord, I am so grateful that you found me when I was so broken inside. Many years ago, I was so lost and headed on the wrong path, but it was because of much prayer that everything changed. You saw my intentions to do everything I could to restore my marriage and to leave the addiction of pornography behind. It was just up to me to go the extra mile and come unto You for help. I had already looked at different avenues for assistance but as time went on, I knew that only Your healing was able to lead me out the darkness, that had me bound, in order to come unto Your light and find freedom. By myself, I was not able to resist temptation and was not able to fight against Satan. However, as I came to You in confessions, Your holy presence came upon me. I may not have had any way to deal with my addictions in the past, but with You on my side, things became very different. First of all, You came and cleansed me of all my sins and gave me a new heart. A heart that had the power to fight against sin, by way of the Holy Spirit. Because Your mercy was for me, I was made stronger to resist the temptations of this world. You built me up to the point, Lord, that I now hate sin. Even the appearance of pornography is like a dagger to the soul. I want nothing of it, as it offends me deeply. I pray that others will also escape this life of sexual sin. Come and convict these people of their sins, that they may also repent and be healed today. I trust in You, Jesus. You are my Healer. I love You Lord. Amen.

Matthew 17:1-3 (KJV)
1 And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart,
2 And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light.
3 And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him.

Oh Lord, I pray that people will no longer miss out on the experiences you have for them. So many times people allow fear to creep into their lives and your desires for them are no longer heard. Instead of giving into your desires for their lives, they instead doubt the fact that they can and should do it and back out. This is saddening to see in many so-called Christian lives now-a-days. You see them worshiping with their hands up high in church but when you have a calling for their lives, it is a different story in how they react. I know this to be true Lord, as this used to be me. I used to hear Your promptings all the time, like I do now, but in the past my doubts got in the way. I'd see people that were struggling and have an instinct to stop and care for them, and instead I'd continue driving. Afterword's, I'd feel terrible about it. These events happened countless times until I finally decided, Lord, that following You and doing Your will was most important. It didn't matter what I thought about things and how they people that of me. I instead decided to just trust in Your desires for my life. Because of this, there are now countless blessings, that I've received from these experiences. Thank You Lord. You have allowed me to not only be blessed but also bless other people's lives. I am so happy that You are still leading me to this day. You have brought me the greatest joy of all. This same joy I want to share with the world. I love You God. Amen.

Offspring

The Psalmist calls the offspring of Jacob to glorify God. We might assume that the offspring of Jacob refers to the Jewish people, and it probably does. Continue Reading
