The Glory of God in the face of Christ

In my dream my husband woke me up and said, “I see God! Wake up! Wake up! Do you see him?” I looked and saw the face of Christ surrounded by God’s glory. I wanted the dream to last forever.

This Lord Jesus Christ who radiates glory, beauty and love, listens to our prayers.

God has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ (2 Corinthians 4:6).

Ask for Wisdom

I often pray for wisdom (see James 1:5). Until I read this definition, I didn’t know all that I was asking.

Wisdom* is:
~varied knowledge of things human and divine, acquired by acuteness and experience
~skill in the management of affairs
~devout and proper prudence in intercourse with men
~knowledge and practice of the requisites for godly and upright living

Our lack of understanding doesn’t limit God’s answers to our prayers.

*from Olive Tree Enhanced Strong’s Dictionary, definition of sophia.

How does being adopted affect your prayer life?

I’m doing a Bible Study* with some girlfriends. We had three different responses to this question: How does being adopted affect your prayer life?

Here’s what we said;
~I pray with gratitude because God chose me to be in His family.
~My prayers show a strong personal bond between God and me.
~I have courage to ask for things because God is my father.
