This morning the words of this song kept coming, “Day and night let incense arise.” It’s a reference to Revelations 8:5 about the prayers of the saints.
I keep hearing over and over, pray! Pray while making coffee. Pray while driving. Pray while gardening. And pray WITH THANKSGIVING!
Thanking God is prayer and it is the function that cultivates joy. Joy is not an emotion that comes from circumstances, it is a skill. Skills need to be developed.
Intimidation, grief or inadequacy are about in the atmosphere. This is a significant time in a significant month for what God is doing. Don’t be fooled, intimidation, grief and inadequacy are NOT you! It is in the atmosphere and it wants to sabotage all God is doing and stirring within and around you and in your nation.
Zechariah 4:10 says
“For who has despised the day of small things? For these seven REJOICE to see the plum line in the hand of Zerubbabel.”
Don’t despise this turning point day. To despise is to shame! Shame says “I am not enough. Heck I’m a looser.” It reidentifies us. Shame is not worthy of you!
Rejoice! Pray with THANKSGIVING! There is so much to be thankful for with JESUS! Remember JESUS! Remember!
