Morning by Morning, August 26 - A Voice Cries Out in the Wilderness
Good morning, Lord Jesus. Here I am to worship and wait for Your leading in my morning communion of prayer with You, O Lord, my God -- Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. ...
"A voice cries out: 'In the wilderness prepare the way of the Lord, make straight in the desert a highway for our God. Every valley shall be lifted up, and every mountain and hill made low; the uneven ground shall become level, and the rough places plain. Then the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all people shall see it together, for the mouth of the Lord has spoken'" (Isaiah 40:3-5).
Come, Holy Spirit. Prepare the way of the Lord in my heart and in the earth. Lift up every valley of discouragement, depression, anxiety, fear, failure, doubt and unbelief. Bring low every mountain of pride, arrogance, self-centeredness, self-sufficiency, and self-righteousness. Straighten out every crooked place of sin, shame, distortion, corruption, compromise, and complacency. Make way for the King of glory here in me, here in my world, here in my time.
For myself and for the people of God in my land, where our hearing has grown faint or our spirit has become dull, awaken us to hear the voice of Your Spirit crying out to us in our wilderness of the world and dry desert of faith. Let us arise and shine, for our Light has come, and the glory of the Lord shall arise upon us in the midst of the darkness that seeks to cover the earth and even the souls of the people of God (Isaiah 60:1). Let us hear the voice of the One crying in the wilderness of these times, "Sleeper, awake! Rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you!" (Ephesians 5:14) In Jesus' name pray. Amen.
Be encouraged today! In the Love of Jesus, Tommy Hays
May you hear the voice of the Spirit speaking to your heart to arise and shine that the light and the glory of the Lord may arise upon you in the midst of your world, in Jesus' name. Please pray the same for me. God bless you, my friend!
