What difficulties do you face?
What would happen if you asked for the grace to see every difficulty as an opportunity, as Simpson says, for giving Jesus, the Son of David, a larger and richer crown, extending his rule in, over, and around you?
Start today by asking Jesus to be the King over your loneliness, your sorrow, your hurts, and your weaknesses.
Let God’s Spirit uncover areas in your life that are not yet fully under Christ’s rule.
Expose each one to him in prayer, expressing your faith that he is indeed the “Son of David,” the Lord who is able to heal and deliver you, the King who wants to extend the boundaries of his kingdom by virtue of what he is doing in you.
