never shaken

As we start this new year, God has put it on my heart to pray scripture in the coming days. There will be a slight change to my format, but I hope you will join me in raising our voices in prayer.


Dear God, we come before you with praise. Praise that you are the sovereign, omniscient, merciful God… full of love and grace. We are in awe that the One who set the stars in the sky is also the one who knows every hair on our head. Thank you for the gift of Jesus Christ who has put us in right relationship with you and for the privilege of coming before you in prayer. Alleluia. Amen.


READ Psalm 16:8

“I have set the Lord always before me;
    because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken.”

  • Write down the action that the Psalmist takes.
  • Write down the result of that action.


  • No matter what you are going through, what is coming against you, what is unknown or what is hoped for… when we choose to keep the Lord before us we can be sure that we will not be shaken. Trust…

Dear Father God we thank you that you are our foundation and our strength. Help us to always keep our eyes on you, the founder and perfecter of faith. Knowing that when we do… we will not be shaken. Lord if we are feeling rattled, lost or afraid – help us to remember that you never leave us or forsake us…we will not be shaken. In Jesus Name – Amen!

Take time now to ask the Spirit to guide you as you seek after the Lord.


  • What has been dominating your mind today? Is there something that you just can’t stop thinking/worrying about?
  • Read Proverbs 3:5-6
  • Put it in His hands… Write a prayer laying it down and trusting in His plan.

This is my favorite new song. Thank you Tauren Wells for putting into song what is in my heart.



Praying that the Spirit would guide you as you lay your heart into the hands of our Almighty Lord! He will make your path straight, trust in Him…

Philippians 4:6-7

  • Here Paul tells us what we should be anxious about. Write it down.
  • Here he also explains what we should be anxious about. Write it down.
  • Do you see a completeness in those words?
  • when we offer up our fears to God what results?
  • We do not understand His peace, but we can be certain that it will guard what?
  • So, here I ask you…what do you choose…Your own fear and anxiety or God’s peace.?

Take your thoughts captive to Christ! His peace will be yours!  I will be praying for you!

The Flesh or The Spirit


Ask the Spirit to guide you as you read God’s word for today. Remember to read the entire passage

Galatians 5:16-17


  But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, to keep you from doing the things you want to do.
Galatians 5:16-17

  • Reread verse 17, what is the relationship between the flesh and the Spirit?
  • What is the result of this conflict?
  • Yet, Paul gives us the way to conquer this battle. What is a way to overcome the flesh?
  • Each of us struggles daily with our flesh and the sinful nature. Is there something that has been particulary troubling for you? Write it down. Ask the Spirit to intercede…Focus on God and His will and allow the Spirit to transform you as you walk by the Spirit.


Walk like a child of God!  I will be praying for you!
