Produce your cause, saith the LORD;
bring forth your strong reasons,
saith the King of Jacob. ~ Isaiah 41:21
This passage of Scripture served as a reminder to me to pray with purpose and to present my "case" to the Lord God. For He is the sole fulfiller of all my hopes for the future.
After reading this passage I came across another one that I thought went hand-in-hand.
The LORD rewardeth me according
to my righteousness; ~ Psalms 18:20
If I do right, stay in God's will, and pray earnestly, God can not help but bless me. What a wonderful promise!
