The Humble Are Heard

When he was in distress, he entreated (asked earnestly) the Lord his God and humbled himself greatly before the God of his fathers. When he prayed to Him, He was moved by his entreaty and heard his supplication, and brought him again to Jerusalem to his kingdom. Then Manasseh knew that the Lord was God.
2 Chronicles 33:12‭-‬13 NASB

Who do you seek out when you are in distress? Does God come to mind instantly or is He an afterthought? A last resort?
Is God moved by your prayers?
When praying we must humble ourselves before the Almighty, Holy, Sovereign God. He will hear. He will answer.

🌹O Lord, You have heard the desire of the humble; You will strengthen their heart, You will incline Your ear
Psalms 10:17 NASB

Wise and Discerning

O Ephraim, what more have I to do with idols? It is I who answer and look after you. I am like a luxuriant cypress; From Me comes your fruit. Whoever is wise, let him understand these things; Whoever is discerning, let him know them. For the ways of the Lord are right, And the righteous will walk in them, But transgressors will stumble in them.
Hosea 14:8‭-‬9 NASB

🌹🙏 The works of Your hands are truth and justice; All Your precepts are sure. They are upheld forever and ever; They are performed in truth and uprightness.
The way of the righteous is smooth; O Upright One, make the path of the righteous level.
Psalms 111:7‭-‬8 NASB/Isaiah 26:7 NASB

In Jesus name and for His glory amen.

Week of Prayer Day 3

Answer me when I call, O God of my righteousness! You have relieved me in my distress; Be gracious to me and hear my prayer.
O sons of men, how long will my honor become a reproach? How long will you love what is worthless and aim at deception? Selah.
But know that the Lord has set apart the godly man for Himself; The Lord hears when I call to Him.
Tremble, and do not sin; Meditate in your heart upon your bed, and be still.        Selah.
Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, And trust in the Lord. Many are saying, “Who will show us any good?”
Lift up the light of Your countenance upon us, O Lord! You have put gladness in my heart, More than when their grain and new wine abound. In peace I will both lie down and sleep, For You alone, O Lord, make me to dwell in safety.        
Psalms 4:1‭-‬8 NASB

🌹Thank You, God. Amen.

The Way

How precious also are Your thoughts to me, God! How vast is the sum of them! 
Psalms 139:17‭

How precious are Your thoughts to me?! To have the mind of Christ. To know all the ways and thoughts of God. How vast the sum of them! I cannot comprehend.

Search me, God, and know my heart; Put me to the test and know my anxious thoughts;  And see if there is any hurtful way in me, And lead me in the everlasting way.
Psalms 139:23‭-‬24 NASB

🌹Jesus *said to him, “I am the way, . . .
John 14:6a NASB

Because You Love Me

“Because he has loved Me, I will save him; I will set him securely on high, because he has known My name.

I will satisfy him with a long life, And show him My salvation.”

No Greater Relationship

I said to the Lord , “You are my Lord; I have nothing good besides You.”  Psalm 16:2

More than that, I count all things to be loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them mere rubbish, so that I may gain Christ,
Philippians 3:8 NASB

Nothing better than a personal, intimate love relationship with Jesus Christ! He is all we need.

🌹 Is Jesus your everything?

The Lord looks from heaven; He sees all the sons of men; 
From His dwelling place He looks out On all the inhabitants of the earth,

The Rock

The righteous man will flourish like the palm tree, He will grow like a cedar in Lebanon. 

Planted in the house of the Lord, They will flourish in the courts of our God.

They will still yield fruit in old age; They shall be full of sap and very green, 

To declare that the Lord is upright; He is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.
Psalms 92:12‭-‬15 NASB

The righteous man, planted in the house of the Lord, will bear fruit, even in old age, and proclaim that the Lord is upright and righteous.

🌹 Is He your rock in whom there is no unrighteousness?
