God’s grace, works in us, in a way suitable to our natures, and in concurrence with our endeavors and the operations of God’s grace in us are so far from excusing, that they are intended to quicken and engage our endeavors. “And work out our salvation with fear and trembling, for he worketh in you” All our working depends upon his working in us “Do not trifle with God by neglects and delays, lest you provoke him to withdraw his help, and all your endeavors prove in vain. Work with fear, for the works of his good pleasure.” To will and to do: he gives the whole ability. It is the grace of God which inclines the will to that which is good: and then enables us to perform it and to act according to our principles. Thou hast wrought all our works in us, Isaiah 26:12. Of his good pleasure.
Father in heaven hear our petitions which we place before your throne. You have shown us, Lord, there are troubled times ahead. We ask, Lord. take us and spiritually melt us down, fire us seven times to purify and reshape us, into the pure medal you have created us to be. Strengthen our minds to endure and hold wisdom, acting through understanding and your will Father. Not out of malice, spite or worldliness. We pray, Lord, as you did for the disciples journeying during a stormy sea, causing fear among them, calm our tumultive surroundings causing fear within us. Fill us with courage and determination. Remove any and all spirits of fear, doubt, and shortcomings within our walk. Sharpen the two-edged swords you have provided through the Holy Spirit, by filling us with your discerning words so we might speak wisely, through humility offering your grace, forgiveness, and gifts within your Salvation. This we pray in the name of Yeshua Amen and, Amen.
Robert a humble obedient servant to Yeshua and his Father in heaven YA.
