“Now I want you to know, brethren, that my circumstances have turned out for the greater progress of the gospel, so that my imprisonment in the cause of Christ has become well known throughout the whole praetorian guard and to everyone else” (Philippians 1:12-13)
No matter what happens in this life, God has promised to bring it together for good for those who love Him. He has prepared the way and knows all that is needed. We will either follow Him wherever He leads, or else continue in the way we are going in the rebellion against the Lord. Live your life in such a way that it is clear whom you are following so that others may see the hope within you.
Lord, guide me into the righteousness You give knowing that only in You is there hope and a future. Lead me according to Your goodness to see that in You is the hope of every generation. May the Gospel be spread through me as it has been through the faithful over the ages. May I learn to be used by the goodness of the Gospel which is in me for the sake of Your kingdom.
Come Holy Spirit and use me to share the Gospel with others so that they too may live into the true and eternal life You give. Guide me according to Your goodness in order that I may now and always look to You above all things. In You is hope and a future. Lead me in that hope to see that You have given the words of eternal life and that in You I will live into the promised eternal life which comes through steadfast faith by Your grace. Amen.
