The first chapter of the book of Ephesians can serve as a helpful balance to how we ought to think and speak of ourselves.
The question is, why do we delay in prayer? What part of our life has been given over in unbelief? Where have we grown cold where the warm faith in Christ was once felt?
Today, do all you can to find nourishment not in yourself, neither in the comforts or pleasures of this world, but feed on the choice food heaven offers.
Some days seem they will never end, and some go by too quickly. Our own troubles could reach the sky if we were to name them one by one, and we can most certainly bring these before the Father. Yet, something more promising, more reassuring and pleasant are the cries of God’s people on behalf of each other.
None of us can be certain what our final moments will be like or what the next hour of our lives hold, but one thing we can be sure of is that God’s faithfulness will not let us down.
