“Strengthened with all power, according to His glorious might, for the attaining of all steadfastness and patience; joyously giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in Light” (Colossians 1:10-11).
The world is not perfect. You know that. It takes steadfastness and patience to navigate this sinful world as a redeemed sinner. The Lord will not only amply supply your needs, but also, He will teach you amidst all strife of this life, His plan and purpose. You have been given the power to become a child of God. Live in that power and walk as a child of the Light, no longer in the darkness.
Lord, there is much I need to learn and many, many things that I do not know. Guide me by Your light so that I not so much seek to know things as to know You. Lead me into Your Light so that I may see goodness and be one who practices what I see in You. You have accomplished for all who believe the salvation we all need. You have finished the work, and now, learning to live as a child of the Heavenly Father begins.
Lord Jesus, teach me today the way of being thankful, steadfast, and patient. Guide me in Your goodness so that I would now and always walk humbly with You. You are my Lord and Savior and in You alone is there all hope and a future. Lead me in the way You would have me go and help me to willingly obey Your ordinances. Thank You, Lord Jesus, for all that You have done, are doing, and will do. Amen.
