Center of Hope Devotion – July 2, 2020

Dear Friends,


George was in his eighties, and his only grandson was a drug addict. Wayne had started praying for his grandson, John, even before John was born. John was nearing forty and had been an addict for much of his life, yet Wayne never stopped praying for John and the other members of his family who were not yet Christians.

Wayne asked God to give him strength to proclaim salvation to his family. Wayne may be older, but he still had an assignment from the Lord for his life.

David might have been in the final stage of his life when he wrote Psalm 71. David pleaded with God not to forsake him. He still had important work to do. He wanted to tell the next generation about God and to encourage them to follow God.

Even when I am old and gray, do not forsake me, my God, till I declare your power to the next generation, your mighty acts to all who are to come” (Psalm 71:18).

Regardless of your age or situation in life, God can use you to share His good news with others. He has an assignment for you today.

Challenge for Today: Accept and fulfill God’s assignment for your day, praying for wayward family members, sharing your faith, or just offering kindness to someone.
