What thought comes to your mind about God as He who binds the wounds of the brokenhearted is the One who determines the number of stars? If He doesn’t delight in the strength of horses, how will we order our inner lives? If He is for the humble how will we carry ourselves? Ps 147
Lord, all we want is to worship You with awe, wonder, and humility and adore You every minute.
Lord, You are the great and awesome God who binds the wounds of the brokenhearted, who determines the number of stars, who sustains the humble, and delights in those who fear You.
Who knows what God wants us to do as we devote long years to study the Word and obey it? Will we do it even if we don’t see why God is preparing us in that manner? We want the gracious hand of God to be upon us, but will we take the pain that goes along with it? Ezra 7
Lord, even while I am living in an land away from my Promise Land and don’t know Your blueprint of my life, let the study of Your Word and obeying it be like a burning fire shut up in my bones.
Lord, I know You delight in those who seek You and honour those who obey Your Word, but I study the Word and obey it not for any reward but just because I want to carry Your heart.
Will we be amazed by what only God can do if everything goes well with us? Is God trying to teach us about His might by allowing impossibilities in our lives? So what will be our prayers when we face problems? Ezra 6-7
Lord, we might not have experienced Your providence and might if we were not cornered and threatened, so our prayers will always be to reveal Your glory and power.
Lord, when we face closed doors give us grace to not to retreat rather persevere to witness Your might to open doors and provide through those who have closed the doors.
Does initial favour indicate smooth sailing towards the fulfillment of His plan? What if there are delays and attacks? Will they swallow our vision to be part of His team to fulfill His promise? Ezra 4:1-24
Lord, even when faced with delays, attacks, or opposition, give us diligence to continue to obey the call of the mighty God whose arms are not too short to save.
Lord when delays, attacks and opposition come, let our eyes continue to behold Your wisdom, might and power working for us to fulfill Your promise.
Which is more important to us-right behaviour or pure heart? Have we wondered if there is a checklist to shape our hearts according to His plan? What is our promise in this context? Jude 1:20-24
Lord, rather than modifying our behaviour, we pursue building ourselves in faith, to pray in the Holy Spirit, sustain in Your love, and show mercy to others mixed with fear knowing that You are our stronghold.
Lord, when You ask us to do something naturally impossible-to change our heart not just our behaviour, You remind us of Your ability to keep us from falling to present us without fault but with great joy in glorious presence
