Bless and affectionately praise the LORD, O my soul!
O LORD my God, You are very great;
You are clothed with splendor and majesty,
[You are the One] who covers Yourself with light as with a garment,
Who stretches out the heavens like a tent curtain,
Who lays the beams of His upper chambers in the waters [above the firmament],
Who makes the clouds His chariot,
Who walks on the wings of the wind,
Who makes winds His messengers,
Flames of fire His ministers (Psalm 104:1-4).
As a child, I looked up to my dad and he was so tall, imposing, and I wanted to be like him. The problem is, as I grew my dad became smaller and I didn’t fear him as much. When I became an adult I thought I knew everything. The problem with holding the belief that “I knew everything”, my dad couldn’t teach me anything and we butted heads. In the same way, when we see how big our G_d is, we revere Him, worship Him, and trust Him. When we think we know better than G_d, His power becomes less in our life and we fall short of His Kingdom. As long as our eyes are on ourselves, our praise and prayers become hollow and meaningless. Today I pray that you get a fresh appreciation of the miracle of G_d’s kingdom and you catch a fresh fire.
Help me today to take my eyes off of myself and put them on you. You have made marvelous earth and you know what it will take to heal it just like you know what we need in our lives and what we do not. May your Spirit fall fresh upon the field of my life and that of my families, Law Enforcement community, military communities, EMT staff, city of Stacy, state of MN, and the USA. I pray specifically for those impacted by the destruction in Miami FL, the wars going on in Haiti, and for those in need of your physical healing. i ask this in Jesus’ name
