Today has been declared a National Day of Prayer. I am thankful for a president who recognizes the need for our nation to pray, “for such a time as this.” When we don’t know what to do or are unclear on the path that we must take, it is time to pray and ask the Lord to order our steps in his will. Some circumstances we may not fully understand, and maybe we don’t always agree with each other on the political side of things, but there is one area that we can be certain of at all times:
Our need to pray for guidance. The bible promises in Isaiah 54:17 that “No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord.”
“Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God” (Isaiah 42:11).
“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind” (2 Timothy 1:7).
I don’t know what tomorrow may bring, but I do know that as long as we are trusting the Lord to work out all things for our good, we can surrender our lives to Christ and he will take care of us.
In this week’s Lattereign, we are encouraged to never give up on God. Follow the link by clicking on it, and it will open up in a new window. Don’t Give Up on God.
On March 15, 1995, the first Lattereign was distributed to Sunday School teachers at the Pentecostals of Greenville, NC, so today is our 25th anniversary. Thank you for reading the Lattereign.
