Well, it seems as though today is another one of those days that I need extra encouragement from the Lord.  The older I get, the more I realize my need of His counsel and guidance!

I really believe that our age doesn’t  have anything to do with our need of Him…but age seems to cause one to admit to their frailties, and in so doing, we recognize our need of God’s help and grace much more than when we are young!

Maybe you’re like me today, and find you have a special need…something you desire from God….  Having said that, I went to my Promise Box again this morning, and here are the two promises I drew….  I hope they will be an encouragement to you as they were to me.  Take a look….

“I beseech you therefore brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.” -Romans 12:1

“The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; He will save, He will rejoice over thee with joy; He will rest in His love, HE WILL JOY OVER THEE WITH SINGING!” -Zephaniah 3:17

“Thou shalt guide me with Thy counsel, and afterward receive me to glory!” -Psalm 73:24

The poem that went with the above verse says this…

My knowledge of that life is small,

The eye of faith is dim;

But it’s enough that Christ knows all,

And I shall be with him!” -Unknown

Take heart!  God is in control!
