TODAY’S READING

Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.

2 Corinthians 3:17

We may find freedom in the way we live, grace and mercy to follow us, and joy every day. He gives us strength and everything that we know needed to overcome the days ahead of us, the seasons that we’re in the mountains that we face, and we get to do that because we get to freely, honor and respect, and we don’t get to, or we don’t have to hide our faith. And the freedom that Christ gives us is something that we all get to partake in, something that was given to each and every single one of us on the cross 2000 years ago. And it is the reason that we get to live such beautiful lives because no matter what happens, our faith is so constant that even in the bad times. 

We know that Jesus is good. And we know that there is a sense of freedom in the way that we get to live. And whereas the world may see our way of life as restricting or confusing for someone else to us. It’s not restricting, but it’s just pure freedom, freedom to live knowing that we win at the end, freedom knowing that what Christ did for us gave us the ability to look at our mountains and ask them to move. We know that we have the ability and the strength to look at whatever situation we’re facing and declare in the name of Jesus that we are overcomers and we are victorious over such. 

And so today is a great day to remember the ability, the great blessing that we have to be able to practice our faith freely, openly. And we don’t have to hide and do so. But we also pray for those who need it and have to in their precise countries and have to pray in silence or have to practice their faith in silence because they also live a life of freedom in the way that Christ designed. But because of certain circumstances, they do have to hide, and so we’re just praying for those. May they continue to find the strength of the Lord every single day.

Prayer

Father God, we thank you for this beautiful Monday. Thank you for the opportunity to come together and pray your name. Lord, we thank you for our situations. If we’re here in the United States, we thank you, and we honor all of those who have served our country and who may have passed while doing so; Lord, it is because of their brave souls that we get to honor you. We get to practice our faith freely. Now we’re all in different countries, and so if we have the opportunity to pray and to practice our faith freely, we thank you for our situations because we know that there are some places in which it’s not possible. So today, we extend our hands to our brothers and sisters in Christ, who have to hide their faith or have to pray in silence, or may you continue to be their strength. Lastly, I thank you for the opportunity to walk into the season of marriage Lord; I am so honored to be doing life your way, The way that you call us to do it. And so I just thank you for that opportunity. Now for everybody under the sun of my voice, I pray for them and their needs. Lord, today is a beautiful day to have a beautiful day. We think you are we on are you today and every day. Amen

Hi, I'm Ali.
I want to encourage you on your faith journey!

I'm the coffee obsessed baker from Miami, FL who got too busy to find time to read scripture everyday. I knew my life was better with Jesus and I knew I wasn't the only one struggling with finding alone time with God every morning, so I put my dreams of opening a bakery aside and set out to produce a five minute daily devotional. What first started as an email chain, has now flourished into a beautiful community and I am so happy you are here!

MY TESTIMONY

We are a faith based community in pursuit of daily prayer. All it takes is five minutes - we know you're busy but He loves you still.
