 Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.  And he who searches hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.
Romans 8:26-27

  • Reread verse 27 what does this reveal about allowing the Spirit to guide our prayer time?
  • I often fill my prayer time with my request but what does this passage show you about being quiet before God?
  • This passage also shows us how well the Spirit knows our heart and how we can grow according to God’s will when we lay our heart before Him.
  • Sit and be quiet before God…what is He speaking into your heart today?

Hebrews 12:1-3

pink rect stitch write

 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith. Because of the joy awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Now he is seated in the place of honor beside God’s throne.  Think of all the hostility he endured from sinful people; then you won’t become weary and give up.
Hebrews 12:1-3

  • We are called to run the race of life with our eyes fixed. Where should our eyes be?
  • In order to assure that we can moe forward, it is necessary that we take action. What does verse instruct us to do?
  • Jesus is our example, the founder and perfecter fo our faith. What does this reveal about our faith?
  • This passage points out the reason Jesus endured the cross-what is it?
  • Write about the Joy set before Christ?
  • Like Christ, each of us is called to carry our cross (Luke 14:21). But, do not grow weary…you, too, have a beautiful joy set before you. Write about what you are looking forward to.

Facts or Emotions

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

Numbers 14:1-4

 Then all the congregation raised a loud cry, and the people wept that night. And all the people of Israel grumbled against Moses and Aaron. The whole congregation said to them, “Would that we had died in the land of Egypt! Or would that we had died in this wilderness! Why is the Lord bringing us into this land, to fall by the sword? Our wives and our little ones will become a prey. Would it not be better for us to go back to Egypt?” And they said to one another, ‘Let us choose a leader and go back to Egypt.”
Numbers 14:1-4

  • The Israelite s cried out to the Lord. What was their complaint?
  • What do they want instead of the land the Lord had promised – the land of milk and honey?
  • Let’s think here…They want to go back to Egypt. What were their living conditions in Egypt (Exodus 1:13-14)?
  • As the Israelites escaped their captors, God repeatedly protected and provided for them (See Exodus 7-16). Yet, they let their emotions overtake what they know to be true. God is faithful! Is there anywhere you are letting your emotions overtake the truth of God’s word?
  • Ultimately, what is the result of the Israelites rebellion (Numbers 14:20-22)?
  • We know that through Christ we are forgiven of all our sins. But when we choose to ignore what we know to be true about God and His word, we take steps away from our walk with Him. Don’t be a wanderer. Trust God! Look at the facts and not at your emotions. Write down some facts you know about God.
  • Remind yourself of these facts and live by the truth and not by your emotions.

Don’t be a slave to your emotions…instead be a slave to Christ!  I will be praying for you!
