24 January: Abraham’s Last Will & Testament

If you haven’t thought of writing a will, today’s the day to take it seriously! In the meantime, here’s a chapter that holds the secret to Abraham’s Last Will and Testament…

Well, for 2,000 years, people have been praying to the Creator God: “…Your Will be done on earth as it is in heaven…”[a]  But to understand the Creator God’s Will for the world that He created, it’s worth checking out what’s woven into the fabric of His epic storyline.

   1.   Praise: “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your Name. Your Kingdom come! Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven …”

I praise you Lord my God, you’re the God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome. You show no partiality and You accept no bribes. [Deuteronomy 10:17]

   2.   Ask: “…Give us today our daily bread…”

I call with all my heart. Answer me, Lord, and I’ll obey Your decrees. [Psalm 119:145]

    3.   Admit: “…Forgive us our sin as we forgive those who sin against us…”

Help me not to despise Your discipline, Lord. Help me not to resent Your rebuke, because You discipline those You love, as a father disciplines the son he delights in. [Proverbs 3:11-12]

    4.   Protect: “…Lead us not into temptation but delivers us from evil.”

May God Himself, the God of peace, sanctify me through and through. May my whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. [1 Thessalonians 5:23]

For Yours Lord is the Kingdom, the Power and the Glory now and forever. Amen!”
