June 8

There was a theme of wisdom in today’s readings. I was first told how wise I was back in college after I had been baptized in the Spirit. The Spirit of Wisdom is just the Holy Spirit. There’s just one Spirit for the believer.

I am very aware of my lack of wisdom but grateful that for every “I can’t” in my life, there is an “I can” in Christ. Boast in your weaknesses so His power can rest on you.

At the same time, every result of lack of wisdom in my life can be redeemed and restored in Christ Jesus.

“When the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion, we were like those who dream.”

Psalm 126:1 ESV

Restore our fortunes…

This is another thing I pray for, both personally and for the Church in America and universal, the restoration of all the things Satan has stolen from us. I ask for justice from the Lord for my case. I can see in my life that restoration is something already happening, though I know it is a process that takes time as well.

I pray for you all, in tears at times. I can remember walking around our backyard, tears streaming down my face praying that when the Son of Man returns He would find faith on earth and praying for you all and America especially.

Those who sow in tears shall reap with shouts of joy!

Psalm 126:4-5 ESV

He hears and answers my prayers. There will be rejoicing!
