Haven’t you heard? Don’t you understand? Are you deaf to the words of God—the words he gave before the world began? Are you so ignorant? God sits above the circle of the earth. The people below seem like grasshoppers to him! He spreads out the heavens like a curtain and makes his tent from them. He judges the great people of the world and brings them all to nothing. They hardly get started, barely taking root, when he blows on them and they wither.
The wind carries them off like chaff.
“To whom will you compare me? Who is my equal?” asks the Holy One. Look up into the heavens. Who created all the stars? He brings them out like an army, one after another, calling each by its name. Because of his great power and incomparable strength, not a single one is missing.
O Jacob, how can you say the Lord does not see your troubles? O Israel, how can you say God ignores your rights? Have you never heard? Have you never understood? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of all the earth. He never grows weak or weary. No one can measure the depths of his understanding. He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless. Even youths will become weak and tired, and young men will fall in exhaustion. But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.
As we start off this 30 Days of Prayer, take time today to simply think about and thank God for who He is. In our insecurity and instability, He is faithful and powerful. Let your spirit soar as you think about the majesty and greatness of our God. There is nothing too difficult for Him. The Lord is aware of all that is going on in the world and all that is going on in your life. He is not far away.
Cast your cares on Him for he cares for you. Confess your struggle to trust Him. Thank Him for his patience, grace and power.
Ask His Spirit to use you to display His greatness to the people you will encounter this week.
Feel free to comment below about how God is meeting you in your prayer time.
Consider picking a day this week or next to fast.
The goal is that you sacrifice something (food, TV, etc.) that matters to you and use that space to focus yourself on The Lord.
