Today's Verse : Romans 8:23

Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the first fruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies. — Romans 8:23

Thought

Life can be very difficult at times. Anyone who has lived long knows this. At the same time, even our worst nightmares are staging periods for our great redemption. Our loneliest moments are the waiting room for our final adoption into the very presence the King of Ages. With the Spirit living inside us, we are assured of the ultimate destination of our lives, no matter where the current scene in life's drama places us. So let's live as those who are assured of their final destination but just have not yet finally arrived, not those who have made their home and placed their hope in what is present. Our best days lie ahead!

Prayer

Almighty and Faithful God, loving Abba Father, bless me with courage today so that I can face whatever obstacles that may lie in my path. Please give me the spiritual strength to do so with grace, dignity, and integrity so that others may see my demeanor and bring you glory. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
