Sunday June 18 Devotional
Philippians 4:6 (KJV) Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
While helping to clean some heavy pots, I found a burnt on area too difficult to remove. Experience taught me to add some scouring powder with true grit. Sure enough, with added conviction I applied some muscle and the spot became clean. What a picture of a recent prayer time. Our church is open on Saturday evenings for prayer. What a privilege to simple show up and in the quiet of the sanctuary, lay open that tough stain in my life, really give it a good scouring, and let our Savior cleanse me and make me whole. Ever consider using scripture and prayer as a scouring pad in your life? How will you remove a spiritual stain?
Thought: Let Jesus take a shine to you.
Oh Lord, help me to allow Jesus to cleanse my heart today.
