God’s Truth for Trying Times - 1/6/22


We need God’s truth in trying times. Read the Scripture passage, think about what it is saying, then pray; by yourself or with your household. Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly (Col. 3:16).


READ: Ephesians 1:3-4 

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. In love [Ephesians 1:3-4 ESV] 


CONSIDER: God's purposes are very clear for us in Christ. He has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing that exists, just as he elected us to be saved before the world began, with the purpose that we would be set apart for him and righteous, forgiven.



THINK: What does this declare about God? What are God’s people being called to do? What assurance is given? How does the Word of God transform our hearts and lives and relationships?


PRAY: Pray these verses to God as a prayer. Pour out your heart in praise to God. Pray for others. Present needs to Him.
