December Daily Day 4 PEACE


Alright, I know.
 I missed yesterday.
 So BONUS!! You get 2 today! A 2 for 1! Now if it were at the Mall on the very thing you needed for a gift, that would be great! You would be rejoicing! But not so sure about this, right?

But I promise, today's installment goes hand in hand with yesterday's. So here goes:

Col. 1:9-12 was yesterdays verse. Guess what? it is today's too! but we are taking it a bit further this time. All the way to verse 14. 
For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives,[a] 10 so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, 11 being strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, 12 and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you[b] to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light. 13 For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, 14 in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

So have you asked Him? Have you prayed this for yourself? For your husband? Your family?
Pray the following prayer, filling in the blank with "ME" first. And know that I am praying this for you today as well. Then pray it for whoever God brings to mind. 

 I ask you God, that you will fill _________ with the knowledge of your will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit of God gives, so that _______ may life a life worthy of the Lord and please you in every way. That __________ will bear fruit in every good work, and that he/she will grow in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power, according to your glorious might, so that _______ may have (choose to live in) great endurance and patience (heres the waiting part from yesterday). May__________ ever be giving joyful thanks to the Father who has qualified him/her through his son Jesus, to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the Kingdom of Light.
Praise be to you, God that you have RESCUED US from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the Kingdom of the Son You Love. For it is in Him alone that we have our redemption and the forgiveness of sins.

Doesn't that just make your heart sing?? 

Makes me think of the song "Rescuer". 
You're mighty and strong to save.
You're mighty and strong to save.
You're mighty and strong to save.

From the heavens you came, to the depths of the grave
to redeem for your sake,

Oh what a Savior!
Freedom Forever!
We lift our hands with Chains Undone.
Hearts that know mercy cannot keep silent.
We sing the song of Saving Love. 
You're mighty and strong to save.You're mighty and strong to save.
You're mighty and strong to save.

If that doesn't give you peace, I am not sure what will.

So in this crazy season, don't forget who's child you are. 

You represent His name. His Kingdom. You are not from here, so you don't have to live like it.

Love you,
