TODAY’S PRAYER CHALLENGE
5 a time to fling away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to abstain from embracing; 6 a time to pursue, and a time to destroy; a time to keep, and a time to throw away; 7 a time to tear, and a time to sew; a time to be quiet, and a time to speak; 8 a time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace.
what time is it?
The negative moments make us long for a time when God will restore his creation to his intended perfection and permanence. But the positive moments… Remember that they come as well. Take advantage of your cues from God today to be fully active in worship. Nothing happens by accident. The people you meet, the projects you will work on, everything you see – they are all messages from the LORD. They are reminders that he is there. Every time you experience peace, pleasure, contentment or joy – stop today and give him thanks. You will find that he is much more present in your life than you thought.
LORD, open our eyes today to the times of blessing when you remind us of your presence.
