Open Eyes, Endless Hope

I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe. – Ephesians 1:18-19 NASB
Each morning You open the eyes of my heart and fill me with Your awesome resurrection power. As I seek Your face, I am filled with endless hope. Enlighten my mind, heart, and spirit as we spend these moments together. I await Your words, dear Lord. Speak to me now! Amen.

Peace Like a River

“I am the Lord your God, Who teaches you to do well, Who leads you in the way you should go. If only you had listened to My Laws! Then your peace would have been like a river and your right-standing with God would have been like the waves of the sea.” – Isaiah 48:17-18NLV
Lord, give me direction this day. Teach me what is best for me and direct me in the way I should go. When I pay attention to Your commands, You give me peace like a river. It is to Your living water that I run. Help me, Lord, to obey You in all I say and do. Give me the wisdom to abide in Your Word, all to Your glory! Amen.
