The ladies and I pulled our chairs together forming a circle. We read First Kings 18:37-39 and Acts 3:1-6. Then talked about how to apply these Scriptures to our lives. A demonstration of God’s power caused the people to cry: the Lord, He is God! In Acts when Peter spoke to the crippled man there was another demonstration of divine power. God wants us to trust Him to demonstrate His power through us so that our loved ones will come to know Him. It was then one lovely young woman spoke: I have a trust issue and become fearful when I think that God wants me to do something. We could identify with her and asked God to help us grow in grace that we might learn to trust Him more.
To the glory of the Father I welcome you, Holy Spirit. I’m so grateful that You are my Helper as I prepare for the New Year. I humble myself before You asking for Divine Guidance. In Jesus’ name I commit myself anew to Your plans and purposes, that I might run the full race completing the destiny to which You have called me. I trust in You, Lord, I put my full confidence in You and Your word, and delight myself in You. Father-God, be glorified in and through my life in coming year as never before, in Jesus name. Amen.
