Philippians 3: 10.
“That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, becoming conformed to his death;”
This has been one of my scripture prayers for a long time. (Right up there with Psalms 51:10-15). When I first prayed it, I would skip over the fellowship of His sufferings. (Who wants to suffer)
It took me a while to understand that if we didn’t share in His sufferings we could hardly share in His power. The sufferings teach us humility, without which, we cannot be conformed to His image. (Being confirmed to his death).
We must come to know Him, to walk with, trust and rely on Him. Bette and I have been in intense prayer, for our finances.
We had faith, but time was up today. This morning a woman knocked on our door, handed my wife an envelope containing the amount we needed to avoid a personal crisis.
Praise the Lord. He is our Shepard, we do not want, He is able to supply our needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
He is both able and willing to do, above all we can ask, think or even imagine.
Thank You, Lord, for Your Love, Grace, and Mercy.
Thanks for visiting,
Know You Are Loved
We all have the relationship we want with God. My desire is a more intimate one.
