Learning Objective: Learn how to put your love in action for more peace and joy.

Scriptures: Galatians 5:14-26, 6:7-10 | 1 Corinthians 13: 2-13

Dear God, put within my hand the seeds YOU want me to sow that deepen the roots of your love in this world. Too often I focus on what I think, need and want and so seeds of self-focus rather than focusing on YOU in me. HELP me to feel your love and recognize all of the ways you come to me throughout my day. For I know I cannot give out what I have not experienced within. Sift my motives so that my heart is convicted to release selfishness that fuels ugly behavior. I want your LOVE to be the motive behind the seeds of my behavior. More of you, less of me.

Help me to apply the learnings contained in today’s scripture to my own “mat” that too often keeps me stuck. I want to know what it feels like to trust that you have my back in all situations. That you call me out of the boat of familiarity into unchartered waters to accomplish things beyond what my eye can see, ear can hear or mind can comprehend. Have your way with me in spite of myself. When I pray and ask for your help I trust that you will give me an action step to take that will transform me out of the ways of the world into the grace of your freedom.

How to Flip Your Suffering into Courageous Victory in Christ

Learning Objective: Understand the value and power of suffering in, with and through Christ for a greater good than had the suffering never occurred. Romans 8:28

Dear Lord, we are blind to the power of suffering in our lives. So much so that we seek out ways to destroy that which causes us to suffer. We give you permission to transform our understanding of suffering as it relates to the wisdom of those who have gone before you and after your death and resurrection. Those who lived and died in faith, believing in, relying on and trusting in YOU as their hope and redeemer over circumstance. Help us to release the fear around the very experience that delivered salvation into this world: suffering and persecution. Strengthen our weak minds and hearts that are too often ruled by the worldly ways rather than your will and death to self. Resurrect the power of the Spirit within us, the very Spirit that rose your dead, scourged body from the grave. Too often we give ourselves authority and permission to do what we feel is rightfully ours to do. Forgive us for taking into our own hands the power of life and death. Teach us the power of a surrendered life to be used for your purposes which far outweigh momentary trials and tribulations we face on this earth-bound journey. Forgive us for forgetting that we are created by you, in you for your glory. This day YOU SET before us life and death, blessings and curses help us dear God to choose LIFE in you that we may LIVE in you for you and your glory.

“I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. Choose life in order that you may live, you and your descendants, by loving the Lord your God, by obeying His voice, and by holding fast to Him; for this is your life and the length of your days, that you may live in the land which the LORD swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give them.”

What Shadow Are You Hiding In?

Learning Objective:

Discern the shadows in your life and take back your ability to dwell in the shadow of the Most High. Understand the gift of refuge you receive as a result of your choice to rest in the shadow of the Almighty.

Dear Lord,

You are the only shadow I want to hide in. Deliver me from all the shadows in my life: past, present, future that hijack my true identity and confidence in you. Help me to recognize when I have jumped into someone else’s shadow, diluting the gifts and talents you have blessed me with along with my ability to own and act on the purpose you have for me on this journey of life. More of you…less of me. I want to dwell in YOUR shadow more today than yesterday and experience the safety and confidence that results from my choice to remain in you.
