Standing tall

Dear Heavenly Father, Mighty Saviour and Holy Spirit. 

Please forgive me for all the times I have taken for granted the freedom you have given me. 

I'm sorry that I have let moments and conversations pass by without taking a stand or having a say. Forgive me for not standing up for what I believe in - YOU! 

I pray that from now on, this day forward I will always be prominent for you and the truth. Let it be even if I don't have any courage. Let me stand tall anyway. 

I thank you for your Word and your Truth. Let me live according to it. Let it be so full in me that it can't help but overflow. 

I thank you that you are always with me and I don't have to be afraid of anything. For you are my shield and my strength. In you I am planted. 

In the authority of Jesus and His name I pray. Amen.

Eager to see Him!

So also Christ was offered once for all time as a sacrifice to take away the sins of many people. He will come again, not to deal with our sins, but to bring salvation to all who are eagerly waiting for him. Hebrews 9:28 NLT 

I read this verse this morning and what really stood out was this... 

"He will come again, ... to bring salvation to all who are eagerly waiting for him." 

This speaks to me 3 things: 

1. Yes He is coming again!! 
2. He is bringing salvation!!! 
3. We are allowed to be eager to see Him!!!! 

How exciting!! I love seeing someone I haven't seen in a while. A friend or my sisters (who live interstate). But imagine for a moment how exciting it is going to be when we see our Lord and Saviour. 

Point number 1 and 2 are of course also very exciting. But point 3 just takes the cake!! 

Are you eagerly awaiting His return??
