SCRIPTURE FOR TODAY: “I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand. I and the Father are one.” – John 10:28-30
Daily Prayer for Today 20 December 2022 MESSAGE
The word “everlasting” for a long time was one that had me thinking of hard seasons, slow seasons, and seasons of my life that seemed as if they’d never end. But, God. He has redeemed this word for me because, truly the only thing everlasting is Him. No season, no hurt, no pain, not even the victories we will see as a human on this side of heaven will ever last forever.
I don’t know what place you find yourself in today. Maybe you’re exhausted, running on autopilot; perhaps you feel like you’ve been in “survival mode,” as my friend put it, to get through the rest of this year. Maybe you’re on that mountaintop rejoicing with Jesus for the victory He’s brought you. Or perhaps you’re just coasting and feeling grateful that life is good. Whichever season you find yourself in, I pray you know what God’s true everlasting promise means. It’s not circumstantial; it’s not for a span of time. It’s eternal; it’s everlasting.
“I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand. I and the Father are one.” – John 10:28-30
And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.” 1 Peter 5:10
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” – John 3:16
The true everlasting promise from our “everlasting Father” is eternal life with Him. Picture it as best as you can; nothing ever separates us again from our Creator. No sin, no death, just us.. with God the Father and His son, Jesus, seated as His right hand.
Isaiah 9:6 is a promise. Isaiah was prophesying what was to come, who Jesus would be, and what a gift He is to those who are His. As Christmas draws near and the season of Advent begins, I pray your heart is tethering itself to this scripture. Ponder the goodness of God and the gift of His Son. Remember Jesus’ humble beginning and all that He would endure for us.
If you’ve never accepted Christ, I want to invite you this Advent to ask Him into your heart as your Lord and Savior with this prayer.

“Father, I know that I have broken your laws, and my sins have separated me from you. I am truly sorry, and now I want to turn away from my past sinful life toward you. Please forgive me. I believe that your Son, Jesus Christ, died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead, is alive, and hears my prayer. I invite Jesus to become the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward. Please send your Holy Spirit to lead me in obedience and to do Your will for the rest of my life. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.”

Lord, thank you for giving us the opportunity to live in an everlasting covenant with you. What a gift it is to be known and loved by our Creator. I pray for a heart that seeks to obey and serve wherever and whenever your Spirit leads me. Thank you for being my Everlasting Father. In Jesus’ name, amen.
Have you ever made Jesus the Lord and Savior of your life?
If not, pray this prayer and start a new life in Christ.
Dear God, I come to You in the Name of Jesus. I admit that I am not right with You, and I want to be right with You. I ask You to forgive me of all my sins. The Bible says if I confess with my mouth that “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead, I will be saved (Rom. 10:9). I believe with my heart and I confess with my mouth that Jesus is the Lord and Savior of my life. Thank You for saving me! In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.
