“Dear Holy Spirit, shine your light into the places of darkness in my life. Show me my sins, everything that blocks me from encountering God. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”
"Dear Lord Jesus, thank you for dying on the cross for our sins and being victorious over death and sin. I confess my sin to you(pause, to tell Jesus what the Holy Spirit has shown you). Forgive my sins by your blood and help me follow you. Holy Spirit, fill me that I may be able to receive your gift to love God and His people. In Jesus Name I pray, Amen."
The Word, Time with Abba (Psalm 62:1-12; Judges 11:1-12:15; John 1:1-28, Proverbs 14:13-14)
Today's main passages:
Trust in him at all time, you people;
pour out your hearts to him,
for God is our refuge. Psalm 62:8
One thing God has spoken,
two things I have heard:
"Power belongs to you, God." Psalm 62:11
Yet to all who did receive him,
to those who believed in his name,
he gave the right to become children of God. John 1:12
The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us.
We have seen his glory,
the glory of the one and only Son,
who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:14
No one has ever seen God,
but the one and only Son, who is himself God and is closest relationship
with the Father, has made him known. John 1:18
Let's have a time to be still and give the Holy Spirit space to speak through the passages we have just read. Offer this time up to Jesus as you listen to him.
May you be able to exercise the right of being God's children, to live out the duty of being God's children so that you can enter into His protection, guidance and blessing!
