Lent 2018: See the Lord's Salvation: Day 20

Grace Day

by

Today's Text: Hebrews 8:10

Use today to pray, rest, and reflect on this week’s reading, giving thanks for the grace that is ours in Christ.

For this is the covenant
that I will make with the house of Israel
after those days, says the Lord:
I will put my laws into their minds
and write them on their hearts.
I will be their God,
and they will be my people.
—Hebrews 8:10

    Convicted of how calloused I have become with my sin. Praying today that I will always be aware of the great sacrifice Jesus paid for my sin. And to let that change the way I live.

  • I’m so encouraged by Freida!!

  • Barbara Menefee

    Praying for all requests. Lifting up my SRT sisters! ❤️

  • Haylee Smoot

    In need of grace and prayer to understand God’s plan for my relationship, how to go forward in faith and not fear. God led me to this person and we have been together for a year and a half. I love him very much but he has explosive anger and gets verbally abusive. I know this is the person God made for me he has made it so abundantly clear and yet at times I feel this is going to be a hard road if I continue. Please pray for me!

    • Helen Pollard

      Hi Haylee. I’m a bit late so you might not get this but I’m praying for you and your relationship. I simply cannot believe God would want you to be in an abusive relationship. I’m praying that the transforming Spirit of God will bring peace, gentleness and self control to your other half. And I’m praying that you can find some good friends nearby who are safe and will advise and look after you as you navigate this tricky situation. Much love. xxx

    Hey there, I wanted to put out this prayer that’s on my heart. I have a friend who’s in a toxic work environment and also recently unjustly dumped from her second job when the management changed hands. I want to pray that she can find a better job & environment that doesn’t require having two jobs or toxic management. She is so sweet, hardworking & a follower of Christ. Thank you & peace be with you.

  • Happy sunday morning…God bless us allways…wishing to visit there…from philippines…

  • Thank you Cathy!

  • Melissa Dukes

    Hello, I am coming in a bit late, but I just had my baby boy and am working to get caught up! I will be working to catch up over the weekend and throughout next week. Please pray for me as I work to get caught up and allow God to open my heart and mind through this study. I am looking forward to studying with all of you and will be praying for each of you!

    • Denise Powers Fabian

      Melissa – We all get behind or fall back at some point because we are human. Congratulations on your new baby boy and know the God of grace understands. He is pleased by your desire to spend time in God’s word.

  • SRT ladies… I’ve never posted on here before, but I am desperate for prayer. Pray for my wandering heart and all of the doubt I’ve been experiencing about my faith in Christ lately. God uses these experiences and feelings to draw us closer to him… however the fear of the unknown (esp. in death) right now has really got me down. I’ve given up social media and Netflix for lent, just because I needed to spend more time with God and experience him more. But it’s not the instantaneous “jump back in” I was hoping for….please pray that God will draw me back close to Him again and that my roots will grow deeper as now I am seeing how superficial they really were.

      Father God, when your children cry out, You hear. Kelly is crying out to know You in a deeper way. Lord, draw her closer to You through the ministry of worship music, through Your Word, through sermons, through the fellowship with other believers and through the majesty of Your creation. Let her see You everywhere in very personal ways. Open her heart to receive and submit to the Truth of Who You are – her good good Father who loves her no matter what. Hold her close, Lord. Let her release her doubts. Let her accept that with You there is some mystery. Let her find the joy in following You Who knows her best and loves her most. Amen.

    • Cathy Smouse

      Kelly, the Bible says that in our relationship with Him, He is the initiator. He tells the story of His pursuit of us in the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation. In Song of Songs 4:9, the king says to bride, “You have made my heart beat faster, my sister, my bride; you have made my heart beat faster with a single glance of your eyes,”. This is King Jesus speaking to us! If you’ve ever been in love, you may remember the excitement you felt just seeing the one you loved. That is the effect you have on the Lord when you direct your attention – even just a glance – to Him.
      Remember there is nothing you can do to make Him love you more, and nothing you do will ever make Him love you less. And remember, too, that God is not ashamed of you. As you spend time with Him, remember that He has drawn you to this place of wanting more of Him. God is not mad at you. God is mad about you.

      I had what I’ll call a “crisis of faith” in 2010 after my grandparents died. The devil was just really putting thoughts and giving me anxiety around rather I was really saved and it sounds similar to you bc so much of it was a fear about not going to heaven, these thoughts of was I really saved. It was not a pleasant time for me, but I am thankful to say I made it to the other side of it! I just continued to pray, attend church, do studies, etc. and finally that stronghold was broken. Will pray for you! Wanted to share a little bit of my experience so you know you’re not alone!!

      • nursedodie

        Megan I had three similar “crises of faith” the and probably the most difficult one was when my 18 year old son died I couldn’t understand why he had been taken from our family so early in life. He was set on becoming a minister. My second time was when my mother died very tragically in an automobile accident she lived long enough for me to get to the hospital. My mom was the sweetest, most caring, most loving, most giving woman around sometimes too much. The last time was when my dad died in June of last year. He would do anything for any family member and he allowed my sons and I to live with them for 11 years and became more of a father to my sons. each time I struggled with my faith and with God’s wishes I also would ask Him why He would not answer right away but He would answer.

      Father God in the name of Jesus,
      Lord thank you for this community of believers and for Kelly V. On tonight Father please renew her heart and mind. Send your angels to comfort her and build up her faith in you. Whatever the situation is Father we know you have already went ahead to straighten things out. Give her the strength to endure whatever she may be facing Lord, help her to rest in the finished works of Jesus. Amen.

      Thank you Kelly for your transparency with us, I love you and God loves you so much more.

    • Sarah Garat

      Praying for you Kelly. ❤️

    • Ruth Jeffery

      Praying in Cali for you Kelly, just keep talking he hears you!

  • Sent! :)

  • The Lord has blessed me with a wonderful and caring family that looks after each other. My Christian parents and grandparents taught us the most important things in life are faith, family and friends. I praise the Lord for you my new sisters in Christ. Please continue to pray for me and my work situation. I praise God that I have a good education and career and a roof over my head and food to eat.

    • Courtney

      Sisters in Christ:
      I am so heartened by your profound faith in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! For the last seven years my faith has been “Job-tested” and I call it that because at times I have felt like Job. I have had a brother betray me; I’ve lost two jobs and I am about to lose my house, if I do not find a job soon. Sisters, I love the Lord so much and while I sometimes wonder if He is listening, I never wonder if He cares because I am still in my house; my family and I are healthy; we have food to eat and clothes to wear, family and friends who love us and God has given us enough left over to bless others.
      Yes sisters, I am truly blessed, but I am still going to ask you to pray for me as I continue to look for a job, as it has been a long road for me and my family. I will keep you in my prayers as well.

  • My son and I just had a conversation and we prayed! I told him I never felt this close to God and I’m so grateful how HE is taking care of us. Will you pray for 2 things this morning? First for my son he’s hanging out today with friend who happens to be a girl. They are only friends and established that! Pray they stay safe and just have fun. Sometimes as the mom who has FULL custody for the time being decisions can be hard. Second, I’m off to day 2 of a women’s conference please pray that I will be open to what God has for me.

    • AliceV

      Prayed for you and your son this morning, Mari. Blessings to you today.

    • Dorothy

      Praying for you know what is like to be a single parent. I remember how hard those times were

  • My study Bible has a table after Hebrews 8 that compares the old and new covenants. It was really eye opening for me to read and made me so thankful for the new covenant we have in Christ! I wanted to share the table with you guys too, so I took a picture of it and uploaded it to an image hosting site. Here’s the direct link to the picture:

    Please let me know if it works!

    • Ana Silva

      I couldn’t get it to work but would love to see it! Do you think you could send it to me on instagram? @analouisesilva

    • Kristen Postier

      It worked for me! Thanks for sharing!

    • Kristi L

      Ana, I just sent it to you! When you go to your inbox you should see a message request from me.

    • Alexandria Chapa

      Hi Kristi! Could you send it to my inbox as well? @asking.alexxandria_

  • Caroline Smith

    Oh sisters so thankful for our grace days and the grace that is ours through Christ! Sisters, can you pray for me? I’m going on the most important trip of my lifetime on Monday to meet my friend of 20 years who I have been praying about for 2 years. He’s in the navy and he’s just the best guy! Will you pray that its unbelievably amazing and confirms our feelings for one another?

    • Freida January

      Caroline, praying Gods Will be done in this situation. Our Lord definitely orders our steps. He so wants to give us good gifts. He is such a good good Father. He knows the future and knows what’s best. I asked God to confirm my husband with 3 things that I told no one and never spoke out loud. One was I wanted him to bring me a special rose. I wanted a yellow rose with red on the tips. My husband (not even my boyfriend at the time) brought me that exact Rose, he said that he wanted to bring me a red rose but he felt so strongly to go and grab the yellow and red rose and he went back to get the red rose and he felt so strongly once again to go get the yellow Rose. Well he did all three things in about a week and they where not your normal request. Fast forward we’ve been married 11 years and we have 10-year-old girl and an eight-year-old boy and we’re almost 50 years old. God is faithful!!!

      • Dorothy

        Freida your love story is literally made in heaven and I’m so happy to hear you have found your true love.

    • Hope

      Praying for you Caroline! Amazed at Freida’s story and the truth in her words. God delights in us and wants the best for us! So Father, be with Caroline as she embarks on this trip and send your Holy Spirit to fill her with your peace about her future with this man. Let this trip be a confirmation for your desires for her and let it be just such an amazing experience of Your love! Thank you that she desires your will first. In Jesus’ name, Amen!

    • Ronda Slay

      @FreidaJanuary That’s a beautiful testimony of just how detailed God is and how He loves to delight our souls!

    • Dorothy

      The Lord will tell you if he is the right man for you but don’t rush into anything. I rushed into a marriage that ended in divorce and I regretted the marriage but not my two wonderful sons.

  • Vicki Del Boccio

    I’m grateful we are HIS children. He will ALWAYS be faithful. May I desire, in all I do and say, to be faithful to Him!

  • Jessica McCreary

    I am absolutely grateful for this covenant!

  • Churchmouse

    May my heart and my mind always be filled with You, my God. Amen.

  • Julianna Silvester

    So thankful for this new covenant!
