THEME: BE STILL
“Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!”
-The word still in Hebrew is derived from the word chashah which means to be at a state of rest and quietness. It also means to believe in God unconditionally. A state of stillness is a place of peace, having faith that God is able to be do that which seems impossible for you to accomplish. Being still is also having knowledge that faith is the substance of things hoped for, and the evidence of what is not yet seen. Faith is therefore a call to believe in the nature of God and His limitless power. Abraham believed God and it was accounted to him for righteousness. Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed and so became the father of many nations, just as it had been said to him (Romans 4:18). Faith is a personal call to believe in Jesus Christ and what He has promised. Without faith we cannot please God. Jesus reminds us that if we have faith and do not doubt, whatever we ask for in prayer and we believe, we shall receive (Matthew 21:21-22).
Abba Father we thank You and glorify Your holy name. We exult You in all the earth. You are faithful and mighty, and power and strength belongs to You. You are able and mighty Lord our Father. Teach us to be still in all situations dear Jesus and we shall know that You are God. May You teach us to believe in You and Your promises. May You increase our faith and grant us Your peace that surpasses all understanding. Teach us to believe in You and Your power without looking any other way. We commit this day and the entire week unto Your able hands, may You go ahead of us in everything that concerns us. We commit all our plans and ambitions unto You dear Jesus, may Your will prevail in our lives. We commit our situations into Your hands, may You bless us and show us Your ways. We commit our families, relationships and marriages unto You Jesus, may You unite us with codes of love that cannot be broken. We commit our hearts desires unto You dear Jesus, may You respond unto us according to Your divine purpose. We commit our businesses, jobs, future, children and our nation unto Your able hands, may Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with us now, and forever more. Amen
