Isaiah 40:12

Isaiah 40Wednesday, August 12, 2020

“Who else has held the oceans in his hand? Who has measured off the heavens with his fingers? Who else knows the weight of the earth or has weighed the mountains and hills on a scale?

Personal note: Boy, oh, boy–doesn’t this verse convict us? As I read this, I immediately thought of the Lord’s challenge to Job in Job 38 WOW! In my mind’s eye I can just see Job looking up at the whirlwind, shaking at the thundering voice questioning him. Awesome, jaw-dropping revelation pours out as the Lord reveals His might, power, and wisdom. HE is the Creator of all things. All creation is by His design. And then I bow my head in wonderment and thanksgiving that HE knows me. How can it be? How awesome is a Creator that knows everything about me down to the number of hairs on my body.

  • You are great and glorious, Lord God Almighty. Receive our praise and thanksgiving for all You have given us to enjoy in this world–the oceans, the mountains, the rivers, the valleys and hills. The beauty we see reflects Your beauty. Convict us to care as much for our environment as You do.
  • Your oceans are vast. When we stand on the shores, it looks like it goes on forever. WE can’t see the ocean’s end, but You do. You set their boundaries. Help us to understand Your limitless power as well as to understand what power You have given us who believe. Holy Spirit, inspire us in new ways to express You to our world.
  • Awaken our spiritual eyes to see the storms on the horizon before they gather strength. We declare that Your hand which has held the oceans, will hold back the onslaught of the enemy’s attacks on our lives, on Your church, and on our nation. Speak to the riotous waves that seek to drown us and tell them to be still.
  • Open our eyes to the unseen realm just as You did to Elisha’s servant. (2 Kings 6:17) Show us how to participate in heaven’s warfare for our families and beyond.
  • May Your hand that has held the oceans be upon us as we share Your Good News with others. (Acts 11:21)
  • Take us to new heights, Lord. Call us to a Mt. Sinai experience. We are willing to be “weighed in the balance” of Your righteous judgment. Cleanse our hearts, heal our wounds, remove the stains on our garments. We realize that only those with clean hands and hearts have a right to shout from the mountaintops. (Psalm 24)
  • Today, Lord, we appeal to Your rule over all the earth and the 7 Mountains of Influence. Let the redeemed say so. Give voice to Your prophets in Your Church. Raise up the Patrick Henry’s in our government to speak with clarity and power. Call families to prayer. (7 Mountains Prayer Guide)
  • We want to know You, to serve You, and to share You. Increase in us that You may increase in our spheres of influence.

Superlatives

I was dreaming just before I woke up this morning and heard, “It’s all about the superlatives.” Next in my mind’s eye I saw a Vonage commercial that has been played over and over in recent weeks. Read more

My Daughter ~ Your Journey

The last three months had been very stressful with leaving retirement and going back to work. There was so much to relearn and practically all the software I’d been used to was updated. Nothing seemed the same. On top of work, there were several people close to me who were really battling hard issues. Read more

My Daughter ~ I am listening

As I was on my way running errands, I passed the site of my car accident that I had on my birthday. I heard the Lord clearly say, “Slow down. Stop and Smell the roses.” I do know how to slow down, but I struggle with getting to a place of stillness with the Lord. Read more

Stop, Seek, & Soak

Stop, Seek, & Soak

This week was particularly troublesome to my spirit. I had to face some real issues in prayer for others: troubled marriages, news of cancer, a suicide leaving 4 children under 12, and people who really needed a touch from God for breakthrough. I found after 3 days of battling in prayer that my joy was diminished to a real low point. Read more
