Today’s Prayer (12/05/2021)

Oh Lord, I pray that You will help me and other Christians stay faithful unto You. I know that I have had my slew of mistakes these many years, for which I have asked You for forgiveness. Thankfully, You are a good God and Your mercy is for those who are really sorry for their sins. One thing I know is that every sin needs to be taken care of quickly and not swept under the rug. I have had things creep up, of which things would have been nothing if I had said something in the past about it. Thankfully, You are so patient and have not given up on me or other people who are convicted of our sins because of our new nature. My flesh is weak, but the Holy Spirit is what makes me a better person. I can walk in Your light because You are leading me and not myself. If I did all the work, then I would do nothing good. Surely, nothing is good on earth unless it is orchestrated by Your hand, God. I wish that people would understand this fact. The world has a way to make things appear to be good superficially, but without, You these things will all vanish away over time. Only Your gifts continue for all time. I trust in You, Jesus. I love You, Lord. Guide me in everything I do. Amen.

Genesis 38:24-26

Genesis 38:24-26 (KJV)
24 And it came to pass about three months after, that it was told Judah, saying, Tamar thy daughter in law hath played the harlot; and also, behold, she is with child by whoredom. And Judah said, Bring her forth, and let her be burnt.
25 When she was brought forth, she sent to her father in law, saying, By the man, whose these are, am I with child: and she said, Discern, I pray thee, whose are these, the signet, and bracelets, and staff.
26 And Judah acknowledged them, and said, She hath been more righteous than I; because that I gave her not to Shelah my son. And he knew her again no more.
