Thought of the day:

Your way, O God, is in the sanctuary; Who is so great a God as our God?
Reference Psalm 77:13 NKJV

The Psalmist here in this Psalm, really portrays what happens, or should happen, in a person’s heart when they go in prayer to Our Lord. If we look at the beginning of the prayer, he starts off with “I” statements. It seems as if he is bringing his complaints to God and seeking Help. However, there is a change in his prayer.

We all know that prayer changes things. It’s not so much that it is because we go to God with our list of demands that causes the change. It’s that during our prayer time, He influences us to see where and how He’s Working.

In this verse, it’s as if there is a change in the direction of his prayer. He’s no longer complaining, he starts to worship God. It’s like a switch clicked and he remembered that God is Powerful and will take care of his concerns. He ends the Psalm talking about how God Works.

Is your prayer life always complaining/requesting or is it developing in worship and seeing how God Loves us? Yes, we bring our concerns to Him but, our prayer should not be focused on us but on Him. This is where prayer truly changes things, it changes our focus.

If we are to please God, we need to allow The Holy Spirit to set us apart. We need to pursue a sinless life. We are to seek Righteousness. How do we do it? Through prayer, study, fellowship, being willing to be corrected/accountability, discipleship, and service.  
It starts with Our Relationship with Jesus. If you don’t have a Relationship with Him or you need to rekindle that Relationship, do it now. Call out to Him and seek his Love and Forgiveness. It really is as hard or easy as you make it. We should look to Him daily to seek a relationship with Him. I want to encourage you to seek Him today, if you haven’t already.
If you need help, have questions or need direction in this regard, please, feel free to let me know. Maybe today you are struggling with something. Maybe you may have found yourself not as close to The Lord as you thought. We would like to help you in this through prayer and guidance.
