Dan Weyerhaeuser, Senior Pastor
Good morning. How has your week been with God’s character more fully in your mind? Thank God for what He is doing.
Take 4-5 minutes to quite yourself before Him. The point of this is not clearing your mind, but stilling your mind specifically before the Lord, as if you are in His throne room (which, by the way, through Christ you are!). Then pray that the Lord would make His Word fruitful in your heart this morning.
Read Isaiah 40:27-31 three times, slowly and out loud.
What characteristics of the Lord are revealed in these verses? After you write down 4-5, take the time to “take each truth about God and, one at a time, make it a matter of meditation before God.” Reflect on what God is like in these verses. (Take your time!)
Now, next to each attribute of the Lord you have written down, go back and write down how each one makes a difference in your life. Then take time to thank the Lord for each one. (Again, take your time!)
Ask the Lord to bring to mind areas that you need to confess. Do so.
Take each of the benefits you have just captured above, and pray them for your family, friends, and church. Ask God to make these things known in their lives.
Who are two people you know who don’t know Him? Pray for them that God would open their hearts and give you a chance to love them.
What things are before you today that you need the Lord’s help with? Ask His leading and help that in each of these things, He would be honored!
