Scripture for Friday - Good Friday

James 3:2-8 (AMP)2 For we all stumble and sin in many ways. If anyone does not stumble in what he says [never saying the wrong thing], he is a perfect man [fully developed in character, without serious flaws], able to bridle his whole body and rein in his entire nature [taming his human faults and weaknesses]. 3 Now if we put bits into the horses’ mouths to make them obey us, we guide their whole body as well. 4 And look at the ships. Even though they are so large and are driven by strong winds, they are still directed by a very small rudder wherever the impulse of the helmsman determines. 5 In the same sense, the tongue is a small part of the body, and yet it boasts of great things. See [by comparison] how great a forest is set on fire by a small spark! 6 And the tongue is [in a sense] a fire, the very world of injustice and unrighteousness; the tongue is set among our members as that which contaminates the entire body, and sets on fire the course of our life [the cycle of man’s …

 "Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me." 
Think about this are there any areas of your life that you would like to invite the Lord Jesus to step into? 

Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinful person, and I know that You are the Savior. Please forgive all my sins and remove all my shame. I invite You into my heart and ask that You be the LORD of my life. Lord, I'll follow You, all the days of my life, from today onwards. I pray this in the Holy Name of Jesus Christ. Amen

For with the LORD, there is steadfast love, and with YOU LORD is plentiful redemption. And YOU will redeem Israel from all his iniquities. Amen

Isaiah 40: 31 ESV
“but they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength: they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.”
As a young person, I used to believe "its one thing after another." We were struggling financially. Now I realise that "life isn't one thing after another." I think when you are young, you are impatient. I want this right now I don't want to save up for that specific thing. When reading Isaiah 40 verse 31 "but they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint."
It is clear that I never want to wait. The waiting part is just too long. Why wait when I can buy something on credit?
