Have we given permission to Jesus to demand anything from us at any given time? What is the expensive thing that we can give Him without Him asking us? What if others consider as a fool for welcoming Jesus like these? Mark 14:1-16
Lord, those who have gifted You with extravagant gifts from Your birth to burial have captured our attention, but everyday we hear You asking us what is it that we can give You today.
Lord, let us be counted among those who have worshipped You with extravagant gifts out of our deep gratitude for making us part of what You are doing in our generation.
How much authority we have given to Jesus in our lives? Does He have the authority to question our priorities? Or will we find excuses or loopholes to disapprove His authority? Mark 11:27-12:12 Dear Lord, many times we have contradicted ourselves by calling You Lord but following our will; forgive us and give us grace to acknowledge You as our Lord and savior.
Dear Lord, even though we call You Lord, give us grace to allow You to be the Lord of our lives, to guide, question, warn and redirect our paths.
What do you usually ask God to do for you? Do our requests have anything to do with His response? Do we usually pray for miracles that others can see or for things which can enlighten our walk with Him? Exo 33:12-23, Mk 7:24-30
Lord, our requests reflect not only how we see You but also how we value our eternity with You; change us inside out to seek Your glory more than any other blessings.
Lord, in Your grace You give us anything we ask, but may we desire not just for things that make our lives pleasant on earth, but for that which strengthens our walk with You.
