“But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumphal procession in Christ and through us spreads everywhere the fragrance of the knowledge of Him. For we are to God the aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing (2 Cor. 2:14-15).”
God defines our character and our destiny. He has been faithfully with you, molding and shaping you, your whole life. He has created you for good works and to, “spread everywhere the fragrance of the knowledge of Him.” Praise the Lord this week for His presence and how you have encountered Him each and every day. List 4 times you have encountered the presence of God and were never the same after! What I mean is, 4 times when you encountered God’s presence in your life and were given a promise tied to Scripture; knowing that without a doubt, you experienced God and His presence in your heart and mind.
Prayer: Father I’m so thankful that You are molding me more and more into the likeness of Your Son. I ask that you continue to reveal your intimate nature to me through our times together each day. Amen
Be encouraged this week by God’s unwavering presence in your life!

Here are two of this month’s prayer requests from KM missionaries in the field.
From the KM missionary team working in Terlan, Italy. “We are thankful for the calendars and books we were able to distribute at the Christmas market in Terlan and for the conversations and prayers we were able to share! Please pray that good seeds were planted and will bear fruit for God’s kingdom!”
Our second request is from Peter and Olga Vogel (Project Leader for Central Russia and Central Asia) based in Schloß Holte-Stukenbrock, Germany. “Please pray for Peter as he assists in developing a youth ministry in Kaliningrad, Russia, then teaches a course on missions at Kaliningrad Bible College. Pray that we will effectively communicate God’s call to missions and that the kingdom of God will grow in the region.”
