Daily Hope & a Prayer – March 31

And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women. And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be. And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name Jesus. Luke 1:28-31 (KJV)

Abba, My Lord and King,

How wonderful You are to me! I am completely overcome by Your love. The thought of You desiring to know me, choose me, and use me for Your glory leaves me in awe and speechless. Thank you for seeing godly purpose in me long before I saw it in myself!

Father, there are times when I struggle with the road that I must walk. Trials and struggles present themselves as obstacles in my way, threatening to hinder or altogether stop, my progression toward You. Yet, You have trusted me with these tasks. You have selected me to carry out Your good will for my life. You created me with purpose in mind, and I trust You to accomplish that purpose in and through my life. Help me to resist the lies of the enemy that whisper accusatory and discouraging words about my future. Strengthen me for the unknown that lies ahead, and use me to encourage and strengthen others. Fill me with courage and humility, that I might be brave enough to face the darkest night, and humble enough to know when to rest in Your shadow. And through it all Lord, please keep me ever grateful and continually faithful.

In Jesus name I pray this,
