God overwrites Our Fear

How many times have we thought that the end has come? Were there times when others saw only our end? Who can overwrite what God has decided? Acts 9:20-31

Lord, we carry on our day with faith in You that no depth or height can overwrite what You have decided about our future.

Lord, You daily overwrite our fear or others schemes with Your plan and purpose for our lives.

Unhappy Life Situations

Which are the life situations that makes us too unhappy with God? Are you allowing our thoughts to wander as you linger on it?  How will you get out of this oppressive situation? Ps 73

Lord, as soon as we notice that our minds are wandering away from You, we go into Your presence to align our thoughts with Your purpose for our lives.

Lord, we rush into Your presence to clearly perceive when and how we have taken detours from Your purpose for our lives.

Express Our Zeal in Godly Ways

Have our zeal for God cause us to act in ungodly ways? How will we discern whether it is our bias or it is indeed God? Have we disowned Him in our eagerness to defend His work? Acts 7:54-8:1

Lord, forgive us because in our zeal for You and Your work, we allow our bias to overpower Your wisdom.

Lord, give us grace to daily bathe our zeal for You and Your work with Your presence and purpose so that our actions will reflect Your thoughts and ways.

Focused Prayers

How do you pray? Do you say specific and focused prayers or do you pray in general? What is the significance of naming the situation in our prayers? 2 Sam 15:31, 17:5-14.

Lord, give us wisdom to pray focused prayers in different situations, to name the situation and take authority over it in the name of Jesus.

Lord, we don’t allow to be swallowed up by challenging situations, rather take authority over the situation in Your name and pray specific and focused prayers.

Being with Him to Do things for Him

Which comes easier to you: to be with the Lord or to do things for God? Can we opt one and neglect the other? What happens if we opt to be in His presence but do not serve or just serve devoid of His presence? Acts 6:3-7

Lord, let us value time in Your presence because  it equips us to serve Your people with wisdom and the Holy Spirit.

Lord, when we receive applause for acts of service,  no one may see our time in Your presence, but give us grace to see our time with You as a significant investment for Your Kingdom.

Godly Convictions

How do you differentiate actions prompted by conviction which are godly and ungodly?  Do we forget God sometimes? How can we have convictions align with the Word of God? Acts 4:32-5:11

Lord, may we carry Your love in our hearts and Your Words in our minds, so that we will develop godly convictions.

Lord, give us grace to be sensitive to Your purpose every moment so that every action will reflect godly convictions.

The restoring God

When we had done something that displeased God, how quickly did He speak to us? How has our understanding of God helps us to repent immediately? Even when He carries out His verdict,  how will we respond? 2 Sam 12:13-23

Lord, thank You for Your provisions to make things right with You when we err, we submit ourselves to Your ways to restore us to You.

Lord, search me to see if there is anything that displeases You, quickly restore me to You as  Your mercy always triumphs over judgement .

Holy Spirit

How often do we  thank God for His gift, the Holy Spirit? As a follower of Jesus, how often we pray for Acts to repeat in our nations? Will you be among those who wait on the Lord for such a visitation of the Lord in our generation? Acts 2

Lord, thank You for the incomparable gift of the Holy Spirit;  we continue to keep vigil for Acts to repeat in our generation.

Lord, we are often comfortable with the daily routine of Christian activities but we ask Your Spirit to disturb us to keep step with the Spirit in our generation.

Who Decides How to End Your story?

What is our attitude as we do something as a follower of Jesus? How will we encourage others for a task? After all the effort, will we leave it to God to decide the end? 2 Sam 10:1-12

Lord, as we encourage each other to be strong and bold to do mighty things for You, we allow You to do what is good in Your sight.

Lord, as a follower of Jesus we encourage each other to be strong and bold for You and Your people, but we allow You to decide how to end the story.

How far do we allow God in our lives?

How will you see God’s involvement in our activities? Is He just the helper or is he also our leader and guide? How will we allow Him to be involved in our lives if we have such perspectives? 2 Sam 5:17-25

Lord, You are our Lord and the helper but we want to see Your presence, power and purpose to live out through us.

Lord, when we face life, we don’t want to limit You as our helper but we will live our trust in You as our Lord and Master.
