Today I spent time going over all of this last weeks QT passages in prayerful consideration of how I would lead the church in prayer tomorrow. Knowing the topic of tomorrow’s sermon will be Joy, the Lord has connected all that I have learned to culminate to today. Themes have been ‘Resting in the hope of eternal life’, ‘being a lover of good’, ‘being self-controlled’, ‘waiting for our blessed hope’, ‘justified by grace’, and ‘good works are excellent and right’. I have been so thankful for these last 11 days of connection! Praying the Lord is encouraging you through your own reading times.
