"As a deer longs for flowing streams, so my soul longs for you, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God." -Psalms 42:1-2
Where is God? Where is God working in your life? What is God's greatest need from you in this moment? Take the time to consider how God is actively with and around you. God is with you. God is near you. God is all around you--speaking, moving, healing. Take the time to embrace the fullness of God's presence where you reside. God is a wonder working God and has not failed to respond to the cries of those who call upon God's Holy Name. Hope is on our side...thanks be to God.
Let us pray,
Dear God, we love and trust in You. We praise Your Holy Name and we ask for Your revealed presence to overwhelm us. We know that you have the answers we seek and the results that we need. We trust You for greater wisdom, revelation and knowledge for it is in You that we live move and having our being. Let Thy will be done! In the Name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.
This is our meditation for the day:
Trust in the LORD forever, for the LORD, the LORD himself, is the Rock eternal. -Isaiah 26:4
I am not certain what you are facing or will face this day. But, I do know that God is able to do exactly what God says. Whatever strength you need, pray to the Lord for it and know that God has heard your cry. God is our Rock and is greater than anything and any one. Find peace in these words and know that Yesterday is over and today is a new day.
Let us pray,
God, we love You and we thank You for this new day with new mercies. Shine Your light upon us and cause us to bear Your Holy Light of truth, justice and love. We trust in You forever and anchor our lives in You. Heal. Save. Deliver according to your Holy Word. In Jesus' Name, we pray. Amen.
God is alive! God is still healing, reviving, and restoring our souls. Speak the Word of God over your life and allow it to lead your decisions. God's Word will never fail you. It will never abandon you. It will never lead you astray. It is not false hope. It is an anchor for our drifting souls. Meditate on these passages today:
Indeed, the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing until it divides soul from spirit, joints from marrow; it is able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. -Hebrews 4:12, NRSV
Let us pray,
God, we love You. We trust You. Let Thy will be done in every person and in every place in Jesus' Name, we pray. Amen.
Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. - Matthew 6:10, KJV
May the Spirit of the Most High God be upon you! God is alive and is active right where you reside! What is God showing you right now? What is God saying in and around you? What does God want you to experience in this moment? What grief is God bearing with us? What joy is God celebrating in the room where you reside? What wonders is God working in and amongst us? Whatever you face today, know that God is with you and that has a perfect will for your life. Live in this will. Walk in this will. Be comforted by God's will concerning you. You are a creation of the Creator of the Universe and God's will is perfect. Rest in it.
Let us pray,
God, we thank You for Your grace and mercy upon us. Thank You for being the God who is with us. You never leave us--not during the difficult times, not during days of joy--never. You are the everpresent GOD. Grow in us and help us to say, "Thy will be done. We trust You." Reveal Yourself, even now, as the God who heals, saves and delivers Your people. Transform us into Your perfect image of love.We are Yours and we live to worship You. Let Thy will be done. Amen.
