Morning Prayer: 12 October – Isaiah 45:22-25 ~ look to God

God says, in effect, “Look to Me and you are saved,” not “You will be saved someday.” We will find what we are looking for if we will concentrate on Him…. Our difficulties, our trials, and our worries about tomorrow all vanish when we look to God.

Morning Prayer: 10 October – Jeremiah 2:2 ~ remember your eagerness

It is wonderful to remember that Jesus Christ has needs which we can meet — “Give Me a drink” (John 4:7). How much kindness have I shown Him in the past week? Has my life been a good reflection on His reputation?

Morning Prayer: 09 October – John 3:3 ~ lost without You

Being born again by the Spirit is an unmistakable work of God, as mysterious as the wind, and as surprising as God Himself. We don’t know where it begins — it is hidden away in the depths of our soul. Being born again from above is an enduring, perpetual, and eternal beginning. It provides a freshness all the time in thinking, talking, and living — a continual surprise of the life of God.

Morning Prayer: 08 October – Genesis 15:12 ~ waiting faithfully in the darkness

When God gives you a vision and darkness follows, wait. God will bring the vision He has given you to reality in your life if you will wait on His timing.

Morning Prayer: 07 October – John 20:28-29 ~ uncompromising, unrestrained devotion

The greatest competitor of true devotion to Jesus is the service we do for Him. It is easier to serve than to pour out our lives completely for Him. The goal of the call of God is His satisfaction, not simply that we should do something for Him.

Morning Prayer: 06 October – Galatians 1:15-16 ~ the nature of my service

God brings me into the proper relationship with Himself so that I can understand His call, and then I serve Him on my own out of a motivation of absolute love. Service to God is the deliberate love-gift of a nature that has heard the call of God. Service is an expression of my nature, and God’s call is an expression of His nature.

Morning Prayer: 05 October – Isaiah 6:8 ~ the nature of God’s call

Isaiah was so attuned to God, because of the great crisis he had just endured, that the call of God penetrated his soul.

Morning Prayer: 03 October – Philippians 1:20 ~ my best for His glory

We will all feel very much ashamed if we do not yield to Jesus the areas of our lives He has asked us to yield to Him. It’s as if Paul were saying, “My determined purpose is to be my utmost for His highest — my best for His glory.” To reach that level of determination is a matter of the will, not of debate or of reasoning. It is absolute and irrevocable surrender of the will at that point.
