By Bobby Schuller, Hour of Power Pastor
“Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.”
Salvation means that Jesus, in the end, is going to have the last word. He wants to rescue every aspect of your life and invite you into a life that is thriving and flourishing.
Even when you lose everything, even when you experience tremendous loss, pain, and defeat, even then something is given to you that saves you. Even when your body fails, something is given to you that, in that moment, gives you the power, the ability, and the strength to have joy, happiness and, most importantly, fulfillment.
That’s what the kingdom of God promises to you.
Prayer: Dear Lord, my life is thriving and flourishing because of you and your promises. No matter what comes my way, my faith in you will give me strength and joy. Amen.
Reflection: Through God’s salvation in your life, what does it mean to thrive and flourish in good times and hard times?
