and they cursed the God of heaven for their pains and sores. But they did not repent of their evil deeds and turn to God.
Revelation 16:11 NLT
We humans are a stubborn people. We desperately want to be in control and do things our way. But our way leads to death and eternal separation from God. Unless He removes the veil from people's eyes and opens their hearts, they are doomed.
Pray that God will open people's eyes and hearts, that they may know their Creator, put their trust in Him, and be with Him for eternity as well as experience the life He has for us now.
Lord, I come to You humbly and with gratitude that You chose me and opened my eyes and heart so that I could be receptive to You. Today especially as many who may not regularly step through church doors will hear Your Word and interact with Your followers, please open their eyes, open their minds, and give them a yearning to know You. Help people to see the good that You have in store for them. Help them to deeply experience Your love for them and our love for them.
