Much worth can be gained in a study of the field—ants about their work, birds in joyous praise, flowers robed in all the spectrum, grass reaching to its Maker. The springtime across the Northern half of the globe sends such sweet reminders of the beauty of our God in this his footstool. Take courage in his providence, which takes time to work a blade of grass from darkness toward the sunlight, which shoots out some plants’ seeds only through fire, which sprouts new life from beds of decay. He may at times so work with you.
National Day of Prayer
The nations, however, still think it more fruitful to set this same footstool on the throne— demote the king, deify his creation, calling the shots themselves by whatever seems right at the time. California lawmakers, reconvening this week after nearly 2 months’ recess, are to decide whether certain sickening bills are to pass (namely regarding the gender revolt & abortion). As believers across America come together before the throne, praise God that he is exalted over all. Pray that this vain plotting would be dashed in pieces. Pray that he would turn stony hearts to himself, just as he has kindled your own heart in his warmth. Turn from any sin entangling you, & look at the brightness of his face. He is worthy!
