From Simple Prayers, Day 307
I DRAW NEAR TO YOU, GOD
God, I want Your Word to be deeply implanted in me so that I not only know the truth, but also express it in the way I live.
O God, You are my God;
Earnestly I seek You;
My soul thirsts for You;
My body longs for You,
In a dry and weary land
Where there is no water. (Psalm 63:1)
Take a moment to affirm the truth of these words from Scripture and ask God to make them a growing reality in your life.
THANK YOU FOR WHAT YOU HAVE DONE
Let me fall into the hands of the Lord, for His mercies are very great; but do not let me fall into the hands of men. (1 Chronicles 21:13)
I will sing to the Lord and give praise to the Lord, for He has rescued the life of the needy from the hands of evildoers. (Jeremiah 20:13)
I LISTEN TO YOUR WORDS OF TRUTH
Lord Jesus, You are in Your Father, and I am in You, and You are in me. (John 14:20)
MY RESPONSE TO YOU, LORD
Cursed is the one who trusts in man, who depends on flesh for his strength and whose heart turns away from the Lord. But blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in Him. (Jeremiah 17:5, 7)
The fear of man brings a snare, but he who trusts in the Lord is set on high. (Proverbs 29:25)
Lord, I thank You for the greatness of Your mercies and for rescuing the life of the needy. I thank You that I am in Christ and Christ is in me, and I ask that I would trust in You and not put my hope in people.
