Day 7

 

Opening Prayer from Psalm 106:4-5

Remember me, O LORD, when you show favor to your people, come to my aid when you save them, that I may enjoy the prosperity of your chosen ones, that I may share in the joy of your nation and join in your inheritance in giving praise.

 

 

Song:  Mighty to Save

written by Ben Fielding and Reuben Morgan

 

Everyone needs compassion,
Love that's never failing;
Let mercy fall on me.

Everyone needs forgiveness,
The kindness of a Saviour;
The Hope of nations.

Saviour, He can move the mountains,
My God is Mighty to save,
He is Mighty to save.

Forever, Author of salvation,
He rose and conquered the grave,
Jesus conquered the grave.

So take me as You find me,
All my fears and failures,
Fill my life again.

I give my life to follow
Everything I believe in,
Now I surrender.

My Saviour, He can move the mountains,
My God is Mighty to save,
He is Mighty to save.
Forever, Author of salvation,
He rose and conquered the grave,
Jesus conquered the grave.

Shine your light and let the whole world see,
We're singing for the glory of the risen King... Jesus (x2)

My Saviour, He can move the mountains,
My God is Mighty to save,
He is Mighty to save.
Forever, Author of salvation,
He rose and conquered the grave,
Jesus conquered the grave.

My Saviour, you can move the mountains,
You are mighty to save,
You are mighty to save.
Forever, Author of Salvation,
You rose and conquered the grave,
Yes you conquered the grave

 

Psalm 108 (NIV)

 

 A song. A psalm of David.

 

 

1 My heart, O God, is steadfast;
    I will sing and make music with all my soul.
2 Awake, harp and lyre!
    I will awaken the dawn.
3 I will praise you, Lord, among the nations;
    I will sing of you among the peoples.
4 For great is your love, higher than the heavens;
    your faithfulness reaches to the skies.
5 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens;
    let your glory be over all the earth.

 

6 Save us and help us with your right hand,
    that those you love may be delivered.
7 God has spoken from his sanctuary:
    “In triumph I will parcel out Shechem
    and measure off the Valley of Sukkoth.
8 Gilead is mine, Manasseh is mine;
    Ephraim is my helmet,
    Judah is my scepter.
9 Moab is my washbasin,
    on Edom I toss my sandal;
    over Philistia I shout in triumph.”

 

10 Who will bring me to the fortified city?
    Who will lead me to Edom?
11 Is it not you, God, you who have rejected us
    and no longer go out with our armies?
12 Give us aid against the enemy,
    for human help is worthless.
13 With God we will gain the victory,
    and he will trample down our enemies.

 

Interact with the LORD and His Word:

 

Father God, Mighty Lord, I need your deliverance.  I'm overwhelmed by the problems that face me.  I am helpless to fix anything, but you are not.  Your right arm is mighty to save and you have promised to faithfully deliver your children when they cry out to you.  By the righteousness of Christ I come boldly into your throneroom and seek your encouragement, comfort, and deliverance.  Please speak now to me through your powerful Word.   Amen.

 

Main Bible Text:  2 Corinthians 1

 

(Read slowly from your own copy of the Word, intent not on how much you read but on hearing what the LORD wants to say to you through His Word.  If you find that your mind is wandering, just reread the same section again and again until your mind is truly contemplating the truth of God's Word.  When the LORD opens your eyes to some truth, write it down--perhaps even on a notecard that you can meditate on throughout the day.  If you don't understand some part of the passage, ask the Holy Spirit to give you understanding.  BibleGateway is also a great resource.  Look under "STUDY THIS" and then "COMMENTARIES.")

 

 

Concluding Prayer time

 

Spend time in prayer. 

  • Confess sin & if none comes to mind ask the LORD to call to mind any sin that you need to deal with.

  • Thanksgiving:  Thank the LORD for His blessings in your life, for His Word & His salvation.

  • Petition:  Recognize who He is and His power to handle the things that concern you today.  Then tell the LORD what is on your heart.  If you're troubled about something, tell Him and then ask for His help.  Pray for the needs that you're aware of, whatever they might be.

  • Conclude with a recognition that your desire is for His will to be done in all of your requests--"In Jesus' name.  Amen.
