Matthew 7:20-23

Matthew 7:20-23 (KJV)
20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Today’s Prayer (09/17/2021)

Oh Lord, bring peace into the lives of everyone that is affected by the death of my niece. She was so young at the age of 27 and I know that many people right now are still in tears because of what happened. I am also at a loss of what to tell people that are affected, but to lend a shoulder to cry on. It is so hard to see a person we know and love for many years and then hear about them dying without notice. This happened with my beautiful niece. She had so much potential, but it will never be realized now. My heart is aching because of this. Lord, help us remember the good times we had with her while keeping her in our remembrance. I pray that she knew You, is saved, and is now in paradise, but only You know this. You are all-knowing, all-powerful, and just. People go exactly where they need to when they die. You know this for a certainty. Your best wishes for me is what brings peace and joy to my life. Would I like everyone to go to heaven and be saved? Yes, of course. That is why I witnessed Your truths, God, with my two nephews today. It was so amazing to tell them about Your great love for us and the need to give our lives to You in prayer. Only then can we be covered by Your blood and be saved. Lord, help them remember what I spoke about and the prayer we did afterwards. I was amazed to see each one of them pray also. Lord, they are ready to receive You. Lead them safely home. I love You, God. You deserve all the glory and all the praise. I trust in You. Amen.
