Genesis 37:3 “Now Israel loved Joseph more than all his children, because he was the son of his old age and he made him a coat of many colors.”
Jacob, now called Israel, had a son named Joseph. His love for Joseph and Joseph’s attitude lead to envy and hatred by Joseph’s brothers. Joseph’s saga was full of hardship and trials. But his life ended in triumph. Joseph said, “You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.”
Your Word, the Bible, changed my life. It introduced me to Jesus. As I read your Word, help me have a greater understanding, that it become a part of me. Engrave it in my heart and mind. As I read your Word, I get to know you and love you more. It increases my faith. Thank you, Lord, for your Word, you didn’t leave us without instruction. It guides and teaches me how to live my life.
Give me courage, O Lord, when I am discouraged. Don’t let my faith waiver. Instill in me the desire to praise you when I feel that all is hopeless. I know you listen to my prayers. I believe in your promises, in them is my hope.
You are my ruling passion in life. I want to live a life of constant obedience in thought, word and action wherever it might lead. The thought that I may awaken one morning and find that I never got to know you, drives me to my knees. Help me to become what you made me to be.
Your Word says that “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me”. Philippians 4:13
I know that things that are impossible in the flesh are more than possible through you. You are my strength.
Faith is the conviction that there is more to life than I see. Without you I would never come to a real vision of what life is about. Lord, I want to see. I want to see your vision for my life.
