Teach me. Show me the path. Guide me today.
Shine, so I can see where to put my feet. Lord, I am walking in obedience. Give me renewed passion & purpose for You.
May I, like Phinehas, do Your will in this complicated world.
Psalm 106:30-31, Numbers 25
Jesus, You were there in the beginning; fashioning, shaping the world, the generations and me. Thousands of yeas ago (in human terms:) You were planning, strategizing and creating.
May I be struck by Your Majesty!
Jesus, if You were there in the beginning, then you were surely there when perfection fell. You saw the greed & forgetfulness, the shame & nakedness. You saw the cowering to hide as Your holiness drew near in friendship. And you clothed them.
May I know Your love. May I fear Your holiness. May I love like you do.
And Jesus, You watched the generations trust, then forget over and over again. You watched with Your Father as the nations chose to not serve You wholly. You watched Your very own people choose evil over good. And yet, You came to give another chance. To redeem. You gave everything to woo them back. They didn't even know it was You! You suffered humiliation. You took all of our sin... my sin. You sacrificed it with Your body and died.
May I be full of Your grace & mercy toward others.
Then, Jesus, You rose up; back to life. Death could not hold Innocence. You put all my sin to death and came back stronger than ever! You are my King. You have killed my debt. You have given me life without shame.
May I live in it!
May I worship You forever!
May I always remember.
Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends. John 15:13
Please inquire for the word of the LORD today. 1 Kings 22:5
