Remember to pray & read the entire passage before beginning.
“O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you;
my soul thirsts for you;
my flesh faints for you,
as in a dry and weary land where there is no water. ”
- How does the psalmist characterize his relationship to God.
- What is his reaction to God’s love and provision?
- I absolutely love the picture drawn by verse 7. What does it mean to you that God is your help and you can rest in the shadow of His wings?
- How does this Psalm shape the way that you live your life? How does this direct your focus, your desires, and how you pray to our Almighty God?
A friend began praying verse over my children and shared with me how she had been praying. It often enters my prayers for my kids as I desire that they would earnestly seek God and their souls would thirst for Him. Praying for you today that you would hunger and thirst for the Lord as you rely on him for His steadfast love and help. Praying for you!
There are passages in scripture that give us a peek inside of heaven.
1 Corinthians 2:9 Revelation 21:22-27
Revelation 5 John 17:24 John 14:1-3
But, until the day He calls us home we will not know what it it will be like. What joy it will be to praise our Almighty God face to face!
What do you think that you’ll do
when you meet Jesus?
Listen to the song by Mercy Me and pray about it…
It really is too much to imagine. Thanking God we have the gift of Jesus Christ… that one day we will be able to be in heaven – bowing, singing, praising, dancing, loving, being still… Praying that we would have a glimpse of that day as we put our Hope in Him!
Remember to take time to pray & read the entire passage before you begin.
I praise you,
for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Wonderful are your works;
my soul knows it very well.
The whole of Psalm 139 is beautiful and thought provoking. It reminds us how intimately God knows us, our thoughts, our path, our words, our heart, and the intricate workings of our body. “How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast the sum of them!” Psalm 139:17. We can not even begin to comprehend the mind of God. But we can see a glimpse in His word and trust the truth about who we are in Him.
- Who created you?
- Write down all the words used to describe this process?
- Formed, Knit together, intricately woven. I just love these words because they help me to visualize God’s artistic work in each one of us. Isaiah 64:8 says, “But now, O Lord, you are our Father; we are the clay, and you are our potter; we are all the work of your hand.” What does it mean to you to be crafted by the divine Potter?
- If all of God’s works are wonderful (v. 14) what does that say about you?
- Read Psalm 139:16 and write down two fact about yourself you gain from this verse.
- Your identity and God’s plan for you existed before He even created your body what does this say about His plan and purpose for you?
You are a creation of God! You are intricately woven together by Him. His masterpiece with a plan and a purpose (Jeremiah 29:11).Alleluia.
Praying that today you would know the truth of God’s word – you are a creation of God! May you trust Him with each day because He has written each one in His book.
Ask the Spirit to guide you as you read God’s word for today.
Again, Jesus puts himself in a place to have a loving interaction with a person in desperate need.
The woman said to him, “I know that Messiah is coming
(he who is called Christ). When he comes, he will tell us all things.”
Jesus said to her, “I who speak to you am he.”
- What kind of water does Jesus offer the Samaritan woman?
What does Jesus share about how God wants us to worship?
Remembering that Jesus is “the way, and the truth, and the life” (John 14:6). What does it mean to you to worship in spirit and truth?
- We are all in desperate need. Without the living water we are sinners who live life empty and thirsty. What does it mean to you that Jesus can fill you up and meet your every need.
