Plea for Grace June 27, 2022

Proverbs 27:1 ESV - 
1 Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring.
James 4:13-17 ESV - 
13 Come now, you who say, "Today or tomorrow we will go into such and such a town and spend a year there and trade and make a profit"-- 
14 yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes. 
15 Instead you ought to say, "If the Lord wills, we will live and do this or that." 
16 As it is, you boast in your arrogance. All such boasting is evil. 
17 So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin.

Lord, Just as much as You command not to worry about tomorrow, I also have no right to presume about tomorrow. Procrastination is not only a waste of time, but it is also presuming what has not yet been promised. Help me to use the time You have graciously given and not to waste it on worry about tomorrow or on procrastination today . . .

Pray for the Persecuted Church–OpenDoorsUSA

The government in Turkmenistan cracks down on anything perceived to be a threat to its rule. Church
leaders in Turkmenistan are especially targeted for persecution because Muslims hold them responsible
for leading people away from Islam. And Christians who have converted from Islam face significant pressure, even violence, from family and their communities

Day 1: Pray for church pastors in Turkmenistan who risk false
accusations and jail. Ask God to give them both
wisdom and courage as they lead

  1. Worry and procrastination seem to be the two sides of the same coin. Right now I’m focusing on, “If the Lord wills, we will live” period.

    1. and we serve a God who is so intentional that He knows every breath we take because every breath is dependent upon Him. He doesn’t take His attention off of us for a millisecond . . .

I want to know what you think!
