These are EXTREMELY PERILOUS TIMES and the Bible warns us “that in the last days perilous times shall come”. The scripture from 2 Timothy sounds very much like a description of today. I find this exciting and frightening at the same time. I’m excited by the thought of seeing my Father’s face soon and frightened for those who will not.
“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, high minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.” 2 Timothy 3:1-5
Father God, please search me and know my heart, try me and know my thoughts. Create in me a pure heart, oh God and renew your right Spirit within me. Help me Father to keep my thoughts fixed on you and my priorities in line with your will and purpose for my life. Shake me to wake me if you must dear Father just please don’t let me miss your glory. Please always keep me awake to you, to your Word, your action, and your presence in my life. Help me Father to be an obedient child who brings you honor, glory and praise in all that I say and do. Let my life be a testimony of your love and your glory. Let my mouth be filled with your praise. Father my heart is open and I completely surrender all that I am to you; shape me, mold me, transform me, and use me. Help me Father to bear the fruits of the Spirit. Help me to walk in love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control always. Grant me spiritual wisdom and understanding. Let your light shine through me always, Father to ignite the hearts of others and inflame them with a passion for you. You are my light and my salvation, Father. So, even in these perilous times who shall I fear? I love you, Father with all that I am and I thank you for your love, your mercies and your forgiveness. In the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
