Our assurance

Yesterday at the close of the worship service, a woman I had never seen came to me and said, “You seem burdened for this church.  I am going to pray for you.  Maybe the Lord will do something.”  I know what she mean’t.  She, was trying not to presume on the Lord.  I also know that had we been in a spiritually revived service that she would have spoken with more boldness.  He will answer! (her confident heart would have proclaimed)  The end of the Lord’s prayer gives us a reminder of our confidence.  “For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory”.  The ground of our confidence is the very character of God.  Nothing we ask is too difficult for Him.  Our confidence digs deep down to the rock. The kingdom is His, the power is His, the glory is His.  At the close of every prayer let us remember to whom we have spoken.   He is all the assurance we need.
