The fire alarm has just been pulled… you have 60 seconds… what do you take? 1, 2…
Take this: Pray 1 Samuel 16:18 for yourself or someone else.
1 Samuel 16:18 (AMP) One of the young men said, “Behold, I have seen a son of Jesse the Bethlehemite who is a skillful musician, a brave and competent man, a warrior, discerning (prudent, eloquent) in speech, and a handsome man; and the Lord is with him.”
God make me someone that uses every skill You have given me to the fullest capacity. May I have nothing left at the end of my life.
Make me choose brave in-spite of fear and give me a competent mind, seeking out anything and everything always measuring it against the Truth of Your Word.
Make me a mighty warrior in Your army Lord. May I remember that the most regret comes from opportunities not taken rather than mistakes from opportunities seized. The man or women whom God backs cannot be destroyed.
Help me Lord to be wise and discerning in my ways. When necessary to use words and help me to trust You to give them to me.
Lord, in this world outwardly we are fading away so help me evermore chase after the inner beauty, the handsome heart that You alone can create in one fully surrendered to You.
Lord be with me always, show me how to grow in a relationship with You, grip me Lord, make my heart fertile soil for Your Word and let my hunger and thirst for more of You be ever increasing. I don’t want to miss even one way You planed for my life to glorify Yours.
In Jesus name, Amen.
59, 60. Go!
