Prayer for Week of April 8–The Father’s Love

April 8, 2013

I don’t know about you but I always find Monday mornings challenging!  Downright overwhelming some days!  My “to-do” list seems so impossibly long.  The children are rarely excited about getting back into the swing of another school day.  The laundry is overflowing.  The house seems a little less than organized.  It would be easy to get distracted.  That’s what the enemy would have you do.  Get lost in all the noise.

Stop.

Breathe.

The heart of the Father beats for you.

This Evening’s Meditation
C. H. Spurgeon

Art thou, beloved one, with Christ Jesus? Does a vital union knit thee to Him?

… Come, my soul, if thou art indeed His own beloved, thou canst not be far from Him.

If His friends and His neighbours are called together to see His glory, what thinkest thou if thou art married to Him? Shalt thou be distant?

Though it be a day of judgment, yet thou canst not be far from that heart which, having admitted angels into intimacy, has admitted thee into union.

Has He not said to thee, O my soul, “I will betroth thee unto Me in righteousness, and in judgment, and in lovingkindness”?

Have not His own lips said it, “I am married unto thee, and My delight is in thee”? If the angels, who are but friends and neighbours, shall be with Him, it is abundantly certain that His own beloved Hephzibah, in whom is all His delight, shall be near to Him, and sit at His right hand.

Here is a morning star of hope for thee, of such exceeding brilliance, that it may well light up the darkest and most desolate experience.

I pray you will allow this Monday to be different.  You are the apple of God’s eye and He adores you!  Allow Him to cover you with His love.  Take time to be with Him.  Set Him as priority.

“Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:7, NLT)
