God’s Power Working All Day
A devotion on Psalm 5:2-3
Listen to the voice of my cry, my King and my God; for I pray to you. LORD, in the morning you will hear my voice. In the morning I will lay my requests before you, and will watch expectantly.
When my wife and I were dating, we lived about four hours apart from each other.
At night I would go to bed with text messages and emoticons of love. First thing in the morning, I’d text her some devotional and love emoticons.
When I had issues with someone at work, she would listen patiently, offering comfort and advice when I was ready for it. It helped me deal with my daily stress to know that she was always there to support me. I loved her (I still do!) and that is why I wanted to tell her everything.
Likewise, God loves you. That’s why He wants you to tell Him everything. Then He comforts you, gives you advice, erases your worries, fears and insecurities. If you let Him, He will wrap you in His loving arms of acceptance, giving you security and abundant life.
To experience God’s explosive blessings:
Take time to pray at the start and the end of every day.
List your problems. Praise God that He has already changed them to blessings. Thank Him that you have already accomplished all your goals and dreams through His Almighty power. Repeat this during the day.
As today’s verse advises: lay your requests before God — and watch expectantly.
What are three problems I want God’s power to work out? What are three goals I want God’s help to reach?
Holy Lord, You know the end from the beginning. You have promised to answer before I even call. Please hear my cry for help. Bless my dreams and my desires, Lord, as I work and live for You. Amen.
