Weekly Devotional by Pastor Ron
January 8, 2017
2 Chronicles 7:14 (NIV)
"If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land."
Lord, I recognize that this verse is for Israel. But it has been left for us as believers also. Here we are in 2017 in a country far from Israel and I my prayer is that you would apply this to us as well. Lord, lead us to repentance.
I pray for revived churches. I pray for a passion lived out for you in the lives of the pastors/shepherds you have called. I pray for a thirst for you by your people.
Thank you Lord for never changing. Thank you Lord for being our creator. This world even in a fallen state is majestic. I can't imagine heaven and the new earth without sin. I can't imagine how glorious it will be to see you for eternity. I can't imagine that each day for eternity there are things still to discover about you.
Forgive me for my whining. I appreciate the life you have given me and rejoice that you have called me to serve you. I pray for a pure heart, undefiled in thought and deed. I pray for a life with you as the focus and the center of my strength.
Thank you for the people you have brought to Soul'd Out. Thank you for the passion of some of these young adults. Grow them, Lord. Bind them together as a church.
I pray for Cornerstone Community Church. The elder board, the staff, the flock of believers united in you. Allow us to make a difference for you in Incline Village and beyond.
