Father, I thank you that you have been raising a generation of sons and daughters that have been tried by your Refiner's Fire. Sons and daughters who are seeking your Presence and not power, position, or prestige. Sons and daughters whose only interest is to build your Kingdom and reaching the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
You have had these sons and daughters hidden for a season, and now, my GOD, you are bringing them out to the forefront. I thank you for each life that has survived the snakes in the rivers, the serpents in the wilderness, the pits, and the lions and the bears. I pray that these "backyard' experiences, like David, is where they have learned who they are in you, but more importantly, who you are in them.
Forever you are GOD. You are Faithful and True. You are Eternal and your Kingdom has no end. Thank you for sending your Son Jesus, because apart from Him, we can do absolutely nothing. ~2015 Narda Goodson, Daily Doses of Gospel Pills
