Good morning, Family:
Have you ever said one sentence prayers to God, when you are at your wits end? Whether you say, “Jesus, take the wheel” or “Lord, have mercy on this situation.” Those phrases are that I like to call prayer for help phrases.
When I first heard today’s worship video, I instantly said, “That’s it! Love, take me over!” Listen the words carefully and read the scripture message below. Remember the song and stand on the Word of God. Before emotions take you/us out of our divine nature, call out to God. When a situation is hard and you feel like lashing out or giving up, call out for the divine love of God to take you over.
New International Version (NIV)
4 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5 Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near.6 Do not be anxious about anything,but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. 9 Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.
Go in peace, while praising and serving the Lord, in Jesus’ mighty name. Amen.
