THOUGHT OF THE WEEK
Life is more than just getting through – we have the choice for something greater, for deep fulfillment and intimate purpose.
Knowing this can help give you confidence when you don’t have it, feel peace when you’re overwhelmed with pressure, and be joyful no matter the circumstances you are experiencing.
It’s easy to get lost in the world, get distracted in comparison, and then wonder if you really matter or if there is any point to anything you do. Which is why it’s imperative to know that yes, your life matters. Yes, there is something larger than just you in control.
Your breath is not accidental. Your purposes are God-breathed.
The Lord has no equal.
Who else has held the oceans in his hand?
Who has measured off the heavens with his fingers?
Who else knows the weight of the earth or
has weighed the mountains and hills on a scale?
Who is able to advise the Spirit of the Lord?
Who knows enough to give him advice or teach him?
Has the Lord ever needed anyone’s advice?
Does he need instruction about what is good?
Did someone teach him what is right or show him the path of justice?
No, for all the nations of the world
are but a drop in the bucket.
They are nothing more
than dust on the scales.
He picks up the whole earth
as though it were a grain of sand.
God sits above the circle of the earth.
The people below seem like grasshoppers to him!
He spreads out the heavens like a curtain
and makes his tent from them. (v22)
Have you never heard?
Have you never understood?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
the Creator of all the earth.
He never grows weak or weary.
No one can measure the depths of his understanding.
He gives power to the weak
and strength to the powerless.
Even youths will become weak and tired,
and young men will fall in exhaustion.
But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength.
They will soar high on wings like eagles.
they will run and not grow weary.
They will walk and not faint. (v28-31)
VERSE OF THE WEEK
And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns. (v6)
I pray that your love will overflow more and more, and that you will keep on growing in knowledge and understanding. (v9)
PRAYER OF THE WEEK
Lord, You are with us every day. We praise You for the life you put into our body. In this world that can feel aimless, overwhelming and beyond our understanding, we celebrate the gift it is that we can lean on You. We put our trust in You, for You are good, your faithfulness reaches the heavens and your love endures forever.
Fill our souls with confidence today that You will continue the work You have begun in us. What peace this gives us to know that we don’t have to do this all on our own, because our strength is weak and our understanding is limited. We praise you with faith for the good work You are doing and will continue to do and we thank you for freeing us from the burden and pressure of hustle that we might step into abundance, confidence and peace.
Move the mountain of our doubt and distraction from our lives. You Lord, are in the business of moving mountains and we see that happening in our lives already, and delight in the promise that it will continue. You are so much bigger than any mountain we could ever have, than any obstacle in our way, than anything or anyone who opposes us. Fill us with hope and faith that, like Abraham, we might press in and press on with confidence. Thank you for the relief that we do not need to do this on our own – that You are our provider, You are our waymaker, You are writing our story.
We praise you for the peace we breathe in. Magnify your love through us that it might overflow beyond our wildest imagination.
In Jesus’ Name,
