3/9/11 Survival Guide Journal Entry from Carolyn Pace

Today's Reading:
Deuteronomy 10-12; Mark 16

And they went out and preached everywhere, while the Lord worked with them and confirmed the message by accompanying signs. –Mark 16:20

This final verse of the last chapter in Mark falls right after Jesus spoke to the disciples then was taken up into heaven and sat down at the right hand of God. Jesus commissioned the disciples to share the good news, the gospel.

When I picture Jesus sitting in heaven, I think of Him waiting for us to talk to Him. His work at the cross is complete; it has made the way for humanity to know Him and the Father through the power of the Holy Spirit.

I am so encouraged by this scripture, to know that Jesus continues his work in Heaven, confirming His word the gospel; and as I ask, believing in Him, His will on earth shall be done. Everywhere Jesus went on earth He set souls free from bondage, torment, oppression, and bodily affliction. His will for all men is to set the souls of humanity free.

Heavenly Father, thank you for Jesus Christ, who sits at your right hand watching over His word to produce its fruit. I pray for our India missionaries to share the love of Jesus with your Indian people. Help them to resist the pressure of performance and come into your rest knowing you will confirm the message by attesting signs and miracles. May your love for all humanity work in their hearts, minds, and souls so others will see and know you. May they have habitual unity and fellowship with you and each other, and may they be divinely inspired to ask for your abundant favor and be blessed. I pray for the salvation of souls, and for the multitude to be set free. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
