Heartlight Daily Verse, with Phil Ware Devotionals

A thought and prayer to start your day

 

May 3
 
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.
 
Thoughts on today's verse
 
Sometimes the key to survival is simply "setting our jaw" and going on faithfully trusting that God is there helping us, despite the outward circumstances. Choosing joy through hope rather than despair, choosing patient endurance in times of affliction, and choosing faithfulness in prayer are all decisions of the will. We trust that God, who raised Jesus from the dead, can also change our circumstances because he hears our voice.

Prayer:
 
Create in me, O Mighty God, a resolute and steadfast heart so that I might persevere with joy no matter what the difficulty. This I ask through your faithful Son. Amen.
