Heavenly Father, thank You for the many precious promises You have made to Your people, Israel, and to those in the Body of Christ. I know that what You have started You will surely complete, to Your praise and glory. Give me patience as I await Your appointed times and may I occupy wisely, as I wait for the fulfilment of Your plans and purposes. I know Your timing is perfect and You are long-suffering toward us, not willing that any should perish. Thank You, Lord, in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Thank You, Father, for the witness of Habakkuk who first shared the wonderful truth that the justified man and woman will live, because of their faith. Thank You for those who have continued to teach this truth down through the centuries, like the apostle Paul and those in the Reformation. How I thank You, heavenly Father, that because I am justified by faith, I will live eternally with the Lord Jesus Christ. I pray that having been justified as Your free and forever gift of grace, I may live every day of my life by faith, by trusting in You and not relying on my own strength or abilities. May my life be honouring to You and a testimony of Your goodness and grace to those with whom I come in contact. This I ask in Jesus' precious name, AMEN.
