As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in Him: Rooted and built up in Him, and established in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving. – Colossians 2:6-7 KJV
When the Lord answers a prayer that has been weighing on our hearts, we can be thankful! Our faith in Him grows stronger as we walk with Him, talk to Him in prayer, and meditate on His Word.
Walking in faith gives us roots, so that when storms come, we are not shaken. Our faith makes us stronger.
When the things of this world threaten to tear us down, the Lord builds us up. He teaches us how to love and models good behavior for us. He loves us more than life itself.
We have many things to be thankful for, because the Lord answers prayers. Amen.
