Tuesday Week 4 December 22
Give the king your justice, O God,
and your righteousness to a king’s son.
May he judge your people with righteousness,
and your poor with justice.
May the mountains yield prosperity for the people,
and the hills, in righteousness.
May he defend the cause of the poor of the people,
give deliverance to the needy,
and crush the oppressor.
Question: Do you trust that God’s plan will endure through the problems that the world sends?
Lord, I trust you that your righteousness will break through the wall of deceit that encircles most of the world. Give me the fortitude to be a part of that breakthrough. Amen
Monday Week December 14
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his power. Put on the whole armor of God, so that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For our struggle is not against enemies of blood and flesh, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers of this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.
Question-Do you see your struggles as worldly or spiritual?
Lord, We all face struggles in life. These hard times are made so much worse because we fail to see the ultimate cause. Our existence in this life is one that is outside of this world. Help me to recognize this struggle and arm myself with your spirit and strength.
Monday Week 2 December 7
O Lord, your hand is lifted up,
but they do not see it.
Let them see your zeal for your people, and be ashamed.
Let the fire for your adversaries consume them.
O Lord, you will ordain peace for us,
for indeed, all that we have done, you have done for us.
O Lord our God,
other lords besides you have ruled over us,
but we acknowledge your name alone.
Question – Are you open to discovering the zeal of God today?
Lord, I know that you are a God of zeal who never abandons his creation.Your love and grace ever multiply and bless all of us. Let me live knowing that you are always there for me.
