Morning by Morning, December 14 - Shame into Praise
Good morning, Lord Jesus. I seek Your face, call on Your name, and listen for Your voice. ...
"After those days, (Zechariah's) wife Elizabeth conceived, and for five months she remained in seclusion. She said, 'This is what the Lord has done for me when He looked favorably on me and took away the disgrace I endured among my people... Now the time came for Elizabeth to give birth, and she bore a son. Her neighbors and relatives heard that the Lord had shown His great mercy to her, and they rejoiced with her (Luke 1:24-58).
In Your great mercy, You take away our disgrace. In Your favor and grace, You turn our shame into praise. You hear our cry and heal our pain; You empty our sorrows and fill us with Your Spirit when we embrace the encounters of Your Presence (v. 1:41) And then even those who once looked down upon us in our times of struggle that looked like a curse begin to look up to God, rejoicing with us, when they see the blessing and power of Your steadfast love to redeem all things we entrust to You. What a Savior and Messiah You are! In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
Be encouraged today! In the Love of Jesus, Tommy Hays
