Powerful Father, thank you that you are my rock and redeemer. You are the God of reconciliation. When I am in a situation and I can not see a solution, remind me that nothing is beyond your reconciling power. May I know your affection and find encouragement that you will never let me go. At the cross, Jesus won the ultimate victory over Satan, sin and death. May I live in the freedom that has been won through that victory. When I face setbacks, I ask that you would turn failure into triumph and pain into praise. Amen.
