Prayer focus for November 24-December 1, 2012
God I pray that we learn to seek You for Your plans for our life and that we seek to build Your kingdom and not our own. That we don't just ask You to bless our plans, our ideas, our own kingdom that we think we need to build, but that we go after Your ways and plans for our lives.
Proverbs 3:6: In all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths.
In every path-our family, our job, our church etc. let us seek Your wisdom, Your love, Your truth, Your guidance and direction. I pray the kids get a hold of this too and begin to seek Your ways in every path of theirs.
Romans 8:28: And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose.
Everything is working together for good--no matter who was elected to various offices in the election--God will make everything work together for the good of His kingdom. We need to join with Him in working to build His kingdom. God help us to prioritize our lives according to Your will. Just as David received the plans for the temple from the Spirit of God, let us receive the plans for our temple--our lives--our hearts where You live--from Your Spirit.
Jesus said the Kingdom of God is within you. .(Luke 17:21). Let us look to the Spirit of God within us. God help us not to work to build the image we have in our mind, our own plans of what our life should be. But let us look to You, to Your Holy Spirit within us and prioritize our lives in such a way that we are building according to Your plans.
Psalms 127:1: Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it...
Let's quit wasting time doing our own thing! Let His kingdom come, let His will be done, in earth as it is in Heaven! Matthew 6:10.
