When you read the title, the first thing that probably comes to mind is Matthew. But, we shall wait for God's timing regarding young Matthew.

I was reading an Adrian Rogers devo today and it really blessed my heart. I'm a fan of acronyms; and here is one for P.O.P

Presence: We need to begin each day by asking the Holy Spirit to fill us. Now if you already know Christ the Holy Spirit is in you. So I actually mean ask Him to control you. And we really need to ask Him to do this each and every day. As we serve Him, the Holy Spirit is going to empower us for the glory of Christ. Matthew 28:20

Optimism: These are difficult times for our nation; and the world for that matter. So where do we find optimism? In Christ Jesus and no-one else.  John14:6 Paul said, that he had learned to be content. Philippians 4: 11-12 In all of this we realize the sovereignty of God. Meaning- He is in control. Meaning- He will have the last word. 1 Corinthians 10:13 God gave the children of Israel Manna from heaven. Exodus 16:4 within that effort there is a timing issue. Move your cursor over that verse and read some more of the chapter at see how His timing effect us. 1 John 4:4 says it best.

Power: Paul also says- I can do all thing through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13 within that effort is the understanding that as we prioritize Him in our lives, only a daily basis, He will take care of "the rest of the story" as Paul Harvey would say. Matthew 6:33
