Faith that He is and He will
A morning prayer for faith
Good morning Living Hopers,
This morning Patty and I read in Exodus 6 and Luke 9.
Jesus asked Peter an important question. One he knew that would lead to a deep rest in his soul. He asked, “Who do the crowds say that I am?” , then he gets more personal, “But who do you say that I am?”. Peter confesses that Jesus is "Christ the God".
But we all know too well from experience that confessing is one thing and really believing deep in our hearts is our lifelong journey.
My own worrisome “I AM ___” and “HOW WILL____?” statements this morning should act as the “check engine” light of my faith.
So often I catch myself using these two statements like Moses did.
The Lord said to Moses, “I am the Lord; tell Pharaoh king of Egypt all that I say to you.” But Moses said to the Lord, “Behold, I AM of uncircumcised lips. HOW WILL Pharaoh listen to me?” (Exodus 6:29-30)
I often say, yes Lord, I know who you are but I am ______ and how will_____?
Here is my prayer of repentance and faith....
A prayer for faith
Lord, today by faith, I silence again my “I am” and “how will” statements. You have told me that you are the “I am”, your Son is my redeemer and you have promised to work your faithful and fatherly care in my life today. May your glory be seen today through my trust and rest in you.
Love to all,
