Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Solomon was reminded by the words of a foreigner that he is where he is by grace and he has been put there to live out the will and to display the character of God in all that he does. So are we! So let's live with the redemptive purpose that God has designed for us to have.

My Prayer...

Dear Heavenly Father, I know that you have blessed me by your grace. Now, dear Lord, please empower me to know and live out the redemptive purpose for which you have made me. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
