Prayer Encouragement: "Finest Thing: GOOD NEWS! " by SkyMom, Terrie Chevaillier

Finest Thing:  GOOD NEWS! 
10 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. 11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. 
Luke 2: 10-11 (NIV)

As we build on the encouragement to pray that we would have beautiful feet this season,
Our first message that our feet need to bring to our children would be the good news!
For some of us, we might not really feel that the current “news” is so good right now.
Right now, our story or our children’s story could include something like:
Loss, loneliness, fear, lack of finances, thus causing lack of joy.
But if our daddy is the King, we have a Savior.
And because we have a Savior…we can have JOY!
We are a part of royalty…and that is GOOD NEWS!
 If our daddy is the King and we are His children and our children are His children
then regardless of our circumstances right now we have access to the finest things….
Because our Savior was born and He is our Father…Messiah, and Lord.
The finest things are love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness, and self-control.
Finest things. Favorite Things.
Let’s pray:
Dear Heavenly Father…thank You that you are our daddy…THE KING.
And thank you that we are Your children.
Sometimes we do not feel that we live in a palace or feel that there is much good news.
However, because of Your birth….please help us as mom’s to teach our children
that the finest things this year are not comfort, the  latest iphone, ipad, or i (myself), but the I AM.
Those gadgets are all good things, and they do bring joy, but it’s temporary joy.
Good news first (finest thing)….brings lasting joy. Those other things second (favorite 
things)…bring fleeting joy and leave us wanting for more.
Guide us as we grow in our desire for intentionality to put Christ at the center of our family.
As we get a taste of the finest this season, I pray that we would 
not settle for less the entire year to come.
