Matthew 5:8 (NLT)
8 God blesses those whose hearts are pure, for they will see God.
Daniel 9:9 (NLT)
9 But the Lord our God is merciful and forgiving, even though we have rebelled against him.
Psalm 16:8 (NLT)
8 I know the Lord is always with me. I will not be shaken, for he is right beside me.
Even when I rebel against him. I pray for those in open rebellion, and I pray for us who while not in open rebellion are rebelling nonetheless. May we see our rebellion and ask for correction.
May our efforts be pure, may our hearts be pure in submission to God, to the will and direction of Christ. May we be the vessels we’re called to be. May we be people of action in God’s will to make the difference He calls us to make.
Psalm 90:17 (NLT)
17 And may the Lord our God show us his approval and make our efforts successful. Yes, make our efforts successful!
May our rebellion be turned toward the world and not Christ.
