Thought For The Week February 7, 2016

This week has been hectic. It almost stands to reason. In a week that we set aside to fast and pray and seek the Lord, life seems to go ninety miles an hour and before you know it, the week is gone and we haven’t given much time to pray. It is Thursday afternoon, after 3 pm, and I am just now getting to writing something to pass on to you.

One of the things that I’ve been led to do most of this week while in prayer is to pray, or actually, to praise the Lord with His Word. I am currently reading through the Bible on a year-long plan from the You Version Bible App. Each day there are several chapters either in the Old or New Testament and along with them is one chapter from Psalms.

Earlier this week, I went to pray and as I began to focus on “Our Father who art in heaven”, so I could begin by looking upward in reverence, I had the thought to read the Psalm from that day’s reading and praise it back to the Lord. That day it was Psalm 110 which begins, The LORD says to my Lord: “Sit at my right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool.” The LORD sends forth from Zion your mighty scepter. Rule in the midst of your enemies! Your people will offer themselves freely on the day of your power, in holy garments. As I read these words aloud to the Lord, it sparked worship within me, thinking about Jesus sitting at the right hand of the Father while He prepares the world for Jesus’ rule. It enhanced by time of worship as I spoke the words back to the Lord and recognized that His rule will be fully revealed when all people, offer themselves freely on the day of your power, in holy garments. That will be a day of real glory.

So I thought that I would just share what the Lord is showing me this week as we continue to pray. Maybe this would help to enhance your times of prayer. Pick a Psalm or other part of Scripture that speaks of God’s wonders and pray or praise it back to the Lord. See if it doesn’t energize you. What is the Lord showing you?
