Heavenly Father, thank You for the many precious promises You have made to Your people Israel and to those in the Body of Christ, knowing that what You have started You will surely complete to Your praise and glory. Give us patience as we wait Your appointed times and may we occupy wisely as we wait for the fulfillment of Your plans and purposes in our individual lives and in the wider Body of Christ.. the Church, in Jesus name we pray, 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
