Oh Lord, I pray that people will desire to know You, God, and not just know the type of person people say You are. Instead, that their hearts will be for you in their thoughts and their acts. A belief is one thing, but our actions to know Your will and to follow you is another thing. And one thing that is lacking in the world we live in is the gift of the Holy Spirit. People trust in people, rather than allow themselves to be led by You. The church they go to has them locked in so that anything else seems foreign and to be shunned. Yes, God, people of many cults and false religions teach their members to not heed the teachings of any other person outside their church leaders, lest they go astray. How said is this? If more people were simply searching for truth, then they would find it in the words contained in the Bible. And yes, there are people that can help them know the truth, but their ears need to be opened to You first. Surely, You are sending out Your vessels of hope and only people who have eyes to see will know who they are. For they will see the light round about Your people as they teach, preach, and witness Your truths to the lost. We live in a dying generation where most people are going to hell because of their wickedness and false beliefs. But I still have hope that some of them will be rescued and be saved before their time is up. That is why I go forth and share the gospel with whoever will hear. I love You, Lord. I trust in You. In Your Name, Jesus, I pray this. Amen.
Acts 7:47-49 (KJV)
47 But Solomon built him an house.
48 Howbeit the most High dwelleth not in temples made with hands; as saith the prophet,
49 Heaven is my throne, and earth is my footstool: what house will ye build me? saith the Lord: or what is the place of my rest?
There are many stiffnecked people in this world. People who would rather be led by men, then by the Holy Spirit, of which matters.
