SUNDAY FEB. 10TH
Pastor J. Barrington Minix, Sr.
I am so glad you joined us for the second day of consecration. Yesterday we focused on the spiritual discipline of Meditation on God's Word. Today's Prayer Focus is on the Spiritual Discipline of "THANKSGIVING". 1 Thessalonians 5:8 tells us to "Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you"...
We can thank God in all circumstances because He is sovereign over all things. He is in control of all things- even the "bad" things that happen to us. Nothing can happen unless He allows it. His infinite love and wisdom causes all things to turn out for our good....Romans 8:28. As you consecrate today, try to spend some time thanking God for the various situations He has allowed you to go through. Try thanking Him for the disappointments you have had in life. Try thanking Him for the times He allowed you to hurt and feel pain. Ask Him to show you exactly what He was trying to teach you through each of those circumstances. Ask Him to increase your faith with every storm He allows you to go through.
Here are a few scriptures to go along with your prayer today.
1 Chronicles 16:34
1 Thessalonians 5:18
Enjoy your consecration time.
I look forward to our time tomorrow. Hope you log on!
