Seek the Lord while he may be found; call on him while he is near. Let the wicked forsake his way and the evil man his thoughts. Let him turn to the Lord, and he will have mercy on him, and to our God, for he will freely pardon. Isaiah 55:7
This is the last Sunday before Christmas. Can you imagine how many men, women and children will go to church this Lord’s Day? What an awesome day for so many believers, who have walked away from the Lord and are now living in the world of sin, to repent. You may have been praying and fasting for prodigals around the world for many weeks. I pray that this is the beginning of the harvest of souls who will be turning their hearts and lives 180 degrees in godly sorrow and repentance. Let’s pray for all the men of God who will present the Gospel of Jesus Christ today.
I am been blessed to be able to go to Christmas concerts at my grandkids’ school every year. Through all these years there have been two very special songs that really touched my heart and they were titled, Home For Christmas and Seek Him. The words are powerful and I knew that has always been my prayer. For everyone who does not know the Lord or is not walking close to the Him, to seek Baby Jesus at Christmas and let Him come into their hearts and transform their lives.
I know Christmas time may be very lonely for you as you miss your spouse, but I believe that the Lord is moving around the world touching and speaking to so many people of all ages and sizes who do not know Jesus Christ as Savior. Believe that God is speaking to your beloved spouse or children who have become the prodigals in your family for right now. Yes, I know your emotions and feelings may be going up and down like a roller coaster right now, but today seek Jesus who is, The Prince of Peace.
“But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you, Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” John 14:26-27
Allow The Prince of Peace to give this to you as part of your Christmas gifts. Will you receive it now? Your Lord wants to heal your bleeding, wounded and troubled soul with His perfect peace. Tell the Lord all your fears and problems in your prayers. Then allow The Prince of Peace to stand guard at the door of your heart and mind, preventing the cares and heartaches of your life from upsetting you and undermining your hope and faith in Jesus Christ. Lay all your cares at your Lord’s feet and let Him solve all your problems.
The enemy may have tried to steal your peace this Christmas by causing strife and sin in your marriage. Remember that Jesus Christ paid the price at Calvary and defeated Satan by shedding His Blood. May you never forget Jesus in the manger and Jesus on the cross as God shows us the miracles and the power that He has done to bring salvation to you and to your whole family.
“Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests.” Luke 2:11-14
Our prayer for Christmas week is that your spouse and thousands of others will humble themselves, confessing and repenting of their wrong choices, mistakes and actions by asking Jesus Christ to come into their heart, immediately. Then the Lord can say to them, Go home now.
