We thank You, Father, for a ramping up. A shift has come in the heavenly; the operation of Your Spirit is going forth in a greater measure and a greater way to effect the next generation. May the power of God—the power that raised Jesus from the dead—become like a heat-seeking missile that goes and finds those who need You.We pray for Your divine presence at every educational venue in America: our high schools, colleges, elementary schools, and preschools. Make Yourself real. Make Yourself plain. Set up divine aid and assistance of Your Spirit. Reveal Yourself to the next generation so they would personally know Your power and Your glory.
In Jesus Name,
Today, I declare YOU ARE GOD
I am the LORD, the God of all the peoples of the world. Is anything too hard for me?
The Resource...The Word!
Bible Reading: 1 Corinthians 15:24-28
God, who gave his Son authority over all things, will be utterly supreme over everything everywhere. 1 Corinthians 15:28
THE POWERFUL KING of a tiny Polynesian island discovered that his enemies on a distant island were planning an invasion by war canoes. The king was determined not only to defend his life but to protect his most valuable possession: a huge, golden throne that sat in the middle of his grass hut. So the king recruited thousands of warriors and stationed them all around his hut.
But just to be on the safe side, the king decided to hide his golden throne. So he had his strongest warriors lift the thousand-pound throne into the wooden rafters of his grass hut and cover it with grass. With his army outside and his throne safely hidden above, the king lay down on his mat and went to sleep.
During the night, the king’s warriors were awakened by a loud noise coming from the king’s grass hut. They rushed in to find that the rafters had first weakened and then collapsed under the weight, and the throne had crashed to the floor where the king was sleeping. The king, who had planned his defense so well, was dead.
The moral of the story: People who live in grass houses shouldn’t stow thrones. Ouch! What a silly twist on the old proverb that people who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones. But this story reminds us that not everything goes right for even the most powerful people in the world. Think about it:
REFLECT: Is there anything the God of life and death can’t do? Do you have any problem he cannot help you overcome? No-the Resurrection proved it!
PRAY: Talk to God about the difficulties you are facing today. Invite him to exercise his resurrection power in you.
