Thanksgiving: I Thank the Lord for Pain, For we count all suffering towards our work in Christ. There will be those who live in worldly comfort, but their hearts are not set on the Lord. Count it a Blessing that you have given everything for the eternity that is to come!
It is Written, “Very truly I tell you, you will weep and mourn while the world rejoices. You will grieve, but your grief will turn to joy. A woman giving birth to a child has pain because her time has come; but when her baby is born she forgets the anguish because of her joy that a child is born into the world. So with you: Now is your time of grief, but I will see you again and you will rejoice, and no one will take away your joy. In that day you will no longer ask me anything. Very truly I tell you, my Father will give you whatever you ask in my name. Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete. “Though I have been speaking figuratively, a time is coming when I will no longer use this kind of language but will tell you plainly about my Father. In that day you will ask in my name. I am not saying that I will ask the Father on your behalf. No, the Father himself loves you because you have loved me and have believed that I came from God. I came from the Father and entered the world; now I am leaving the world and going back to the Father.” John 16:20-28
Prayer: Father, I know many grow wary of this world, But I pray that you daily send them encouragement to continue the good fight of Faith you have imparted into your Children in Jesus Name, Amen!
