Set My Face
September 26, 2007
Oh that you had listened to my commands! Then you would have peace flowing like a gentle river and righteousness rolling like waves.
The Sovereign LORD has given me his words of wisdom, so that I know what to say to all these weary ones. Morning by morning he wakes me and opens my understanding to his will.
Because the Sovereign LORD helps me, I will not be dismayed. Therefore, I have set my face like a stone, determined to do his will. And I know that I will triumph.
Instead, there must be spiritual renewal of your thoughts and attitudes. You must display a new nature because you are a new person, created in God’s likeness – righteous, holy and true.
My prayer for today:
Thank you Father for what you have done in my life. Morning by morning you wake me and open my understanding to your will. I will continually renew my mind because you have given me your Holy Spirit. My thoughts and my attitudes are lining up with your word. I am setting my face like a stone — determining to do your will. Teach me to see, hear and do your commands so that I may have peace like a gentle river and righteousness rolling like waves. Thank you that I display to others a new nature because I am yours created in your likeness – righteous, holy and true. For I know with you all things are possible and I will triumph for all the good things that you have placed within me. Thank you Adonai! In Jesus name I pray. Amen — and it is so.
