Morning by Morning, January 2 - Glorious Adventure!
Good morning, Lord Jesus. King of the world, be King of my world -- here in my heart and here in the every moment of my day. ...
"Call to Me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known" (Jeremiah 33:3).
As I begin this new year, I want to begin by seeking Your face, calling on Your name, and listening for Your leading. I want Your vision to be my vision, Your plans to be my plans. I want to position myself in both humility and faith, that I can hear what You're saying and see what You're doing, as You tell me great and hidden things that I have not known. Let this be a great adventure of revelation in the unfolding of this year -- morning by morning and moment by moment with You.
Your Word says "It is the glory of God to conceal things, but the glory of kings is to search things out" (Proverbs 25:2). Fill me now with expectant hope to search out the things that You've concealed like hidden treasures for me to search out and find on my adventure in faith and daily journey of prayer. "'What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the human heart conceived, what God has prepared for those who love Him' -- these things God has revealed to us through the Spirit; for the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God" (1 Corinthians 2:9-10).
Come, Holy Spirit. Let the glorious adventure begin! In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
May you be filled with expectant hope for the glorious adventure the Lord has set before you this year, in Jesus' name. Please pray the same for me. God bless you, my friend and Happy New Year!
Happy New Year and God Bless You, Tommy!
