Tuesday August 12 – Stand in awe
Come and worship
For the word of the Lord is upright, and all his work is done in faithfulness. Psalm 33:4 For He spoke, and it came to be; he commanded, and it stood firm. Psalm 33:9
Meditate on His Word Psalm 33, Luke 5:17-26
‘And amazement seized them all, and they glorified God and were filled with awe, saying, “We have seen extraordinary things today.” Luke 5:26
The power people need to follow is more than power to provide physical needs and 8
health; it is the power to provide spiritual forgiveness and health.. We often look to our own physical needs or to the physical needs of others because we can see and touch those needs, they are tangible. In this story of Jesus healing in Luke, Jesus tells the paralyzed man that his sins are forgiven and to get up and go home. Jesus knew the mans’ need for forgiveness was greater than his physical ailment and this left everyone that witnessed this scene play out in awe, utter amazement. There are few surprises left in this world today, we know about most things immediately after they happen on Twitter and Facebook, so there isn’t much that leaves us in awe. But Jesus does. What extraordinary things will you encounter today?
Reflect and give thanks
Give thanks that the Lord looks beyond your physical needs and beyond the physical need of others and straight at the heart. Give thanks for healing in your life, physical, spiritual and emotional. What seizes your amazement in what the Lord does? What are you in awe over?
Ask the Lord to show you the physical needs of others like the men that brought the paralyzed man to Jesus to be healed.
Pray that the Lord examines you spiritually and convicts you of the weakness in your faith. Pray that you are healed physically from sickness and disease. Pray for the same for others as well.
Pray that Jesus would work through you to walk alongside someone who needs to know Him, who needs to be forgiven and set free from the pain of sin and deat
