Silence and Centering (PAUSE FOR 2 MINUTES OF SILENCE)
“Be still, and know that I am God!- Psalm 46:10
Dear Lord, we come to You today in worship and praise, knowing that You are God and King. You are worthy of our praise. We also come recognizing that we are sinners and stand here in need of You, our Savior. We have sinned against You and others and ourselves and have wanted to go our own way. We have been stubborn, controlling, and selfish, and have not been faithful to You.
We confess that we haven’t been good witnesses of Your love and grace, and have not stood firm in our faith. We are so sorry, oh Lord; please forgive us. Change our hearts and cause us to repent and turn toward You. Fill us, Holy Spirit, making us new and whole. Wash us clean and breathe Your breath into us. In the Name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for us who believe him. This is the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms.
How would it change your life if you really understood the power God has for you? Can you imagine someone only living on $10,000 a year when they had a million dollars given to them and placed in their bank account? It would be foolishness to have a million dollars and never understand all that you could do with it. Yet what must God think, when He has deposited into our life account His incredible power, and we never avail ourself of it; we only live on a fraction of what He has supplied us with? How different would our life be if we really begin to understand how He wants us to use His power? Pray today that God would open your eyes to all that He wants to do in your life through His powerful possibilities.
Dear Father, help me to understand all the power You have for my life. Help me see how I am a steward of that power, how You want to use Your power in and through my life. Please, Lord, give me the faith today to ask for Your power exhibited in my life. In Jesus’ name. AMEN
If today’s devotion spoke to you in a particular way and you feel led to share your thoughts with others, please do so.
