Word of the Day... 30, 2013

28 But everything they did was determined beforehand according to your will. 29 And now, O Lord, hear their threats, and give us, your servants, great boldness in preaching your word. 30 Stretch out your hand with healing power; may miraculous signs and wonders be done through the name of your holy servant Jesus.” Acts4:28-30

Taking time to worship

I found it very interesting that the Christian disciples didn't just rush into their petitions to the Lord when they were praying. They took the time to worship Him first.

I never thought about that until I was in the book of Acts. I had always panicked and took my concerns to the Lord without worshiping Him as He deserves.  I think that prayer should always begin with worship; a time of quietness before the Lord, recognizing the greatness of God acknowledging the One to whom we are coming to for help, and realizing that God has it all under control.  That He is large and in charge.

Worship gives us perspective and strength. Then we are ready to bring our petitions before the Lord. So now I start my prayers with worship then my petition and lastly more worship!

I can never thank my Father enough for all He does for me every day! I hope that each and every one of you take the time each morning to spend a little time with Jesus in the Word and prayer before going out into the world. He can make all the difference in how your day goes! I hope you have a Simply Heavenly day God bless you!!!
