Morning by Morning, September 27 - Knowing Both the Scriptures and the Power of God
Good morning, Lord Jesus. Align my heart with Yours, my thoughts with Yours, and my steps with Yours, now and throughout the moments of my day. ...
"Jesus answered them, 'You are wrong, because you know neither the Scriptures nor the power of God" (Matthew 22:29).
Father God, I want to know both Your Scriptures and Your power. I want to know Your Word and see Your Word made manifest. I want to know You, to experience You, to worship You "in spirit and truth" -- not just in "spirit," not just in "truth," but both "in spirit and truth" (John 4:23).
Take me deeper in Your Word. Take me higher in Your Spirit. Make me "rooted and grounded in love" -- in love with Your Word, in love with Your Spirit, in love with You in every dimension and every expression of Your Being, so I "may be filled with all the fullness of God" (Ephesians 3:14-19).
Lord Jesus, You are the Word made Flesh (John 1:14). You are the very essence of God's Word and God's Spirit, together as One, alive and active in our world. And as You are, so am I to be in my world (1 John 14:17).
Come, Holy Spirit. Give me a deeper hunger for Your Word, a more intimate encounter with Your Spirit. I don't want to be "balanced" in the sense of having just enough of Your Word and just enough of Your Spirit to fit into my world, or even my "church." I want to be radically surrendered in whole-hearted devotion to You, to Your Word, to Your Spirit, to fully know and experience Your Scriptures and Your power, to be part of Your great plan to turn my world and even my "church" "upside down" in Your power and love through my life! (Acts 17:6) In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
My friend, may you grow deeper in the Word of God and go higher in the Spirit of God, even more radically surrendered in whole-hearted devotion to God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, as He turns the world around you upside down through you and your radical love for Him, in Jesus' name. Please pray the same for me. God bless you, my friend!
Friends, please please keep us in prayer and come join us if you can for our annual Golf Scramble and Silent Auction Fundraiser for Rapha God Ministries this coming Saturday, September 28th in San Antonio at The Quarry. We are excited to have Max Lucado and Jim Barker join us, with sponsors like K-Love radio, Whataburger, and Rudy's Bar-b-que! We don't charge for our personal prayer ministry sessions so it is available to all, free of cost, so support from our friends and sponsors help make our ministry possible.
Even if you don't golf, come hear Max Lucado give a word of encouragement and enjoy the silent auction and big bar-b-que luncheon! Sign up or make a contribution on-line at Rapha God Ministries Annual Fundraiser
