While hanging on the cross, Jesus cried, “Father forgive them for they know not what they do!” (Luke 23:34) May His mind be in us, (Philippians 2:5), that we could and would forgive those who have wronged us. Also Lord, I pray, that we would do it immediately, without them even having to say they are sorry. Jesus didn’t wait for an apology and neither should we, who are in Christ.
Whatever else we may have trusted in has the capability to fail…money, banks, government, laws, politicians. Any of it can fail Lord, but You will never fail. Your words will never fail. What You have spoken will happen. Your word will not come back to You void without accomplishing what You set it out to accomplish.
Open our eyes so that we may see the beauty in Your word. You have everything we need in this life written down in Your holy word. May we bring honor to You as You grant us wisdom in and from Your word.
