How great you are, Sovereign Lord! There is no one like you, and there is no God but you, as we have heard with our own ears.

2 Samuel 7:22

Can we just start with an ‘Amen’? Amen. God is good. There is no God like him.

As we have heard….and not seen?

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

Romans 12:2

When was the last time you went to God in prayer, asking him to show you his will?

For most people…it was probably the last time you prayed. And did you get any answers?

Maybe you did. Maybe you didn’t. Perhaps the problem wasn’t your prayer. Maybe you have a brain problem.

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Jeremiah 29:11

This verse is one of the most frustrating verses ever.

Because we use it for almost everything all the time. For weddings. Graduations. When we feel like we’ve hit rock bottom. When we lose our jobs. When the economy crashes. When life sucks.

But for a believer, chances are great that you have heard someone talk or preach about how this verse is so often used out of context. How it has been manipulated to be a health and wealth gospel motto. A name it and claim it standby verse to prove that you can expect everything to go well.

Blah.

Listen, my son, to your father’s instruction and do not forsake your mother’s teaching. They are a garland to grace your head and a chain to adorn your neck.

Psalm 1:8-9

Simple words. Hard obedience.

Can God be serious about this?

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.

Psalm 106:1

From Christian Thought Sandbox,

Happy Thanksgiving!

Weekly Prayer: October 10th, 2021

Holy God, our Jehovah Jireh, Provider of all that we have, Sustainer of our very lives, Giver of life and the very breathe that we take,

Today is a special day, a day set aside to express our thankfulness for all that you have given to us. We gather as family and friends to enjoy the bounty of blessing you alone have given. We gather as a family of Christ to offer up worship and praise to you, to you alone God, for how you have provided and sustain us.

There is so much that you have provided for us. There is so much that you have given to us, to sustain us through this complex and complicated year. And there is so much that you have given that we are grossly unaware of.

For all these things, visible and invisible, we thank you Lord. We priase you God. We lift up our hands. We lift up our voices, and we say:

Thank you.

Thank you Lord for your unending mercy. Thank you Lord for your undying love. Thank you Lord for your unrelenting forgiveness. Thank you Lord. So very much.

All that we are, all that we have is evidence of your goodness to us, and we thank you for it all.

Thank you Father, for taking care of your sinful and wayward children.

We pray in the mighty name of Jesus,

Amen.

A PSALM OF DAVID, WHEN HE WAS IN THE DESERT OF JUDAH

You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water.

Psalm 63:1

Leave it to the poet to tie his physical situation to his spiritual state. Well played, David.
