This week’s Pastor to Person was written by Pastor Daniel Grant.
Beloveds, there are going to be storms. By storms I don’t just mean the hurricane Ida that has slammed Louisiana. I mean that life, people and especially our spiritual enemy will deliberately target us. Jesus promised us that life would be tough but that he would be with us AND that he would send a counsellor to us that would be with us through all of this: His Holy Spirit?
Something that struck me in our daily reading was the confidence that Paul had in coming to God in the midst of these storms. Eph 3:12 “…in whom we have boldness and access with confidence through faith in Him.” We have Jesus and have access to God, and to the very throne room of Grace – enter in!! The only way we have these amazing resources is through faith. Faith in Jesus gives us the confidence to pray just like Paul did. Take a minute and read Eph 3:14-20. Don’t pray for ease or comfort, pray for the LOVE of God, the will of God, the strengthening of God. AND “20 Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, 21 to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.”
Standing with YOU – Sending HUGEST of hugs,
