DAY 13 — The whole of Psalm 29 speaks to the glory and majesty of the Lord, and the final petition is that God would grant peace. Pray the same for us.
“Ascribe to the Lord, O heavenly beings, ascribe to the Lord glory and strength. Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name; worship the Lord in the splendor of holiness. The voice of the Lord is over the waters; the God of glory thunders, the Lord, over many waters. The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is full of majesty. The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars; the Lord breaks the cedars of Lebanon. He makes Lebanon to skip like a calf, and Sirion like a young wild ox. The voice of the Lord flashes forth flames of fire. The voice of the Lord shakes the wilderness; the Lord shakes the wilderness of Kadesh. The voice of the Lord makes the deer give birth and strips the forests bare, and in his temple all cry, “Glory!” The Lord sits enthroned over the flood; the Lord sits enthroned as king forever. May the Lord give strength to his people! May the Lord bless his people with peace!”
WEEK 3 - PEACE OVER CHAOS
We are getting closer to all the things we have been preparing so long for. It would be easy at this point to grow anxious, worried, or even chaotic. We may have feelings of being unprepared or fear of the unknown. However, it is at this time that we would grow even more confident in the Lord. Despite all the things that need to be done, pray that our lives would be defined by the peace of God. As people that are not a part of this family draw near, we want them to recognize this peace that emanates from us. What is it that you are holding onto that is preventing you from resting in God? Pray that God would take away these things and pull you near to him. Seek peace for the whole body, that the community would be a place of rest and comfort and not chaos.
Pray the Scripture
First, Read the Scripture aloud and pray the exact words back to God. Second, go back through it verse by verse, and in your own words pray to God based on the words in Scripture. Third, take notes of what God revealed to you in that time.
Sometimes we may run out of words to say, or maybe you are someone that cannot stop talking to God. In either case, we need to grow comfortable with sitting and growing quiet to hear from the Lord. Remember to rest in God’s presence so that you can hear Him when he speaks to you.
In your time of prayer, write down what is you are praying for so that you can look back to see what God did. Also, write down what God is revealing to you. We like to think we will remember everything, but humans are pretty forgetful beings.
