Good morning, Lord Jesus. Speak to my spirit; stir my heart; order my steps; lead me to honor You through my life today.  ...

" 'Hallelujah! For the Lord our God the Almighty reigns. Let us rejoice and exult and give Him the glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His bride has made herself ready; to her it has been granted to be clothed with fine linen, bright and pure' -- for the fine linen is the righteous deeds of the saints" (Revelation 19:6-8).

With the body of Christ that is whole, with the bride of Christ that is holy, I want to be ready for the coming of Christ on the Day of the Lord (Ephesians 5:25-27). And at the same time, I want every day to be the Day of the Lord in my heart and through my life now (2 Peter 3:1-18).

Every day counts; every moment matters; every choice has consequences. So let me "be careful then how (I) live, not as unwise people but as wise, making the most of the time.... (Let me) not be foolish, but understand with the will of the Lord is" (Ephesians 5:15-17). "The world and its desire are passing away, but those who do the will of God live forever" (1 John 2:17). So as best as I can and all by Your grace, let me be ready, let me use my time well, let me do the will of God, let me live forever, and let the Almighty One who reigns forever live in me now. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

My family, I pray you may be whole and holy, ready for the coming of the Lord, now and forever, living out the will of God today all by the power of the grace of God. Please pray the same for me. God bless you, my friends!
