Today's Verse: Romans 14:11 (KJV)

Saturday, April 23, 2022

For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.
— Romans 14:11 (KJV)

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

"Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven." "Maranatha! Come Lord Jesus!" Yes, every knee will bow. But ours already do. We live in anticipation of the day when all peoples will bow before our King. Until that day, let's do all we can to make sure as many as we can influence bow before Jesus on that Day in joy and not on in fear!

My Prayer...

Father, I thank you for saving me. May my anticipation of the day of Jesus' victory move me to be your agent of reconciliation so others are ready for that day and will welcome it with joy. Give me eyes to see those who need to come to Jesus today. Through him I pray. Amen.
