Praying God's great and precious promises for our spouse, children, and loved ones. Today's prayer is focused on God's promise that we will INHERIT THE EARTH; however, did you know not everyone will inherit the earth? This promise is found in Matthew 5:5. It is the Beatitudes. The Beatitudes are the promises, the teachings, Jesus spoke at the beginning of the Sermon on the Mount. Matthew 5:5 "Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth. The meek inherit the earth. When we are looking for God's will for our lives, it is not hard to read scripture and know His will. Here is one example: being meek; which comes with a promise. Meek in scripture means humble, gentleness of spirit. Do not mistake it for a form of weakness. In one section it says that we are to rely on God instead of our own strength to defend against injustice, trusting in God's goodness and control over the situation.
Father, we thank You for the promise to INHERIT THE EARTH. Lord, I ask that You show us areas of our life, show our spouse, our children and our loved ones where we are not being meek, where we are not fully relying on You in a situation that is unjust; whether we think something is not fair what our spouse is going through at work, or we think our children are being treated unfairly, or we see others walking through a season of prejudice and discrimination then we ask during these times Your strength and power be upon me and the ones walking through this. We ask You to help us trust that You see all and are working behind the scenes for the good of those who love You, working behind the scenes for those being treated unfairly. We trust in Your goodness and control over these situations. We thank You as we choose to be biblically meek that You promise us the inheritance of the earth. We praise You and trust You and pray this in Jesus' name the name above all names Amen.

Who am I? Galatians 2:20 does a great job of summing up who I am. My life is His, the One who loves me and gave Himself for me . In return, I want to be all He wants me to be and do all He wants me to do on this side of Heaven.
