Pay Attention


And we have the prophetic word more fully confirmed, to which you will do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts, knowing this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture comes from someone’s own interpretation. For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit. 2 Peter 1:19-21

Heavenly Father, We marvel at the way you know everything from beginning to end, long before it happens.  Thank you for sharing with us what is to come so that we can be prepared.  We want to be found ready, watching, serving you faithfully when Jesus returns.  Please help us to stay awake, not slumbering in apathy and caught unawares when that Day comes.  Please shine your light brightly through us so that those around us cannot "sleep" either.  Please use us to inspire others to put the deeds of darkness behind them and get ready as well.  Let us all abide IN Jesus, not merely claim to know Him. We look forward to the fulfillment of the final prophecies with great anticipation, knowing that you will see us through everything that happens and you are worthy of any trials we must pass through in order to have our faith purified and refined.  Thank you for everything you have done and are going to do in your great mercy and love for your creation in order to restore everything as you intended it to be.  We love your perfect and beautiful ways and rejoice in our salvation.  We are in awe of the love you have for us.  You are amazing and we love you more than we can express!  In Jesus' glorious, adored name, Amen.
