Today’s verse and devotion comes from The Gospel Daily.
Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the Lord did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the Lord scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth. – Genesis 11:9
Have you been praying long for God to change the heart of someone in your life? What exhausting agony there is in waiting for a result that never seems to come! You begin to wonder if it is even possible after a while, or if God will ever really answer that prayer. God truly holds the heart of every man in His hand, as He says, in Proverbs 20:24, for example. The great demonstration of God’s power over man’s mind is demonstrated in Genesis 11. God, in an instant, was able to strip man of his own language and plant in him another. So do not be discouraged; God is able to do far more than you could imagine to ask of Him. Keep praying! – Commentary by Steffanie Howard
Father, please help bring my loved ones, those who are away from Your will, help them surrender to You. Help me to be faithful to keep praying until this prayer is answered. Amen
