Rev 21, 9-14
No matter the circumstances in which I find myself, there is one sure direction; I can always take the next best step to walk firmly and faithfully to, and with, God. Who are those who have been healed physically, mentally or spiritually? Those who have journeyed faithfully with God. Who are the Saints of the ages? Those who have stood firm in faithfulness to God. Who are those who today move mountains of human agony and injustice? Those who stand firm in faithfulness to God. Am I ready to choose the option to live my life standing, firm, in faithfulness? Holy Spirit, help me stand firm in faithfulness to God.
Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and sustain in me a willing spirit. (Psalm 51:12)
The gift of grace increases as the struggle increases.
