The Future Is As Bright As The Promises Of God

This Is My Prayer

Bless me, heavenly Father,
forgive my erring ways,
Grant me strength to serve Thee,
put purpose in my days…
Give me understanding,
enough to make me kind
So I may judge all people
with my heart and not my mind…
And teach me to be patient
in everything I do,
Content to trust Your Wisdom
and to follow after You…
And help me when I falter
and hear me when I pray
And receive me in Thy Kingdom
to dwell with Thee someday.

Being Honest Before God

We are constantly tempted to believe that we can hide from God some of what we think and do. But the Bible reminds us in many places of the truth spelled out in Hebrews 4:13: “And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are open and laid bare to the eyes of Him with whom we have to do.” We need to be honest before God, because He already knows all about us. Furthermore, the Bible points out that a day is coming “when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ” (Romans 2:16). We need to be honest before God, because He will reveal all our secrets.
Honesty before God is appropriate to our relationship with Him as a child to Father. “Your Father knows what things you have need of, before you ask Him” (Matthew 6:8). But He also desires that we share with Him all our concerns, temptations, and failures.
