10 April: “Spiritual” Connection

This chapter shows that unless there’s a personal, intimate, “spiritual” connection – we’ll remain blind to what’s staring us in the face…

A THOUGHT FOR TODAY:

Blind to What's in Front of You

Blind to What’s in Front of You

Like the two men on the original road to Emmaus, Israel in the 1st Century AD, I too could have heard about thoughts and concepts, from the greatest of teachers, related to the Creator’s Global Plan. [v27] I think I could also get a physical reaction inside when truth resonates deep within my heart and soul. [v32]

However, after listening and getting a feeling inside, there’s a third step. So without making a personal “spiritual” connection [v30-31] that’s so compelling, it makes me get up out up my chair, head to where I can find Him [v33], and immediately take what He’s offering, I could remain permanently blind to what’s staring me right in the face. [v15-16]

Finding it hard to connect with the Author behind the Script? The rest of this webpage uses Jesus’ own prayer to help…[a]

THE LORD’S PRAYER: Have you ever wondered what to say to God? This section has four parts and uses the prayer that Jesus taught His disciples to pray.[b]

    1.   Praise: “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your Name. Your Kingdom come! Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven …”

Sovereign Lord, You’ve begun to show to me Your greatness and Your strong hand. For what god is there in heaven or on earth who can do the deeds and mighty works that You do? [Deuteronomy 3:24]

   2.   Ask: “…Give us today our daily bread…”

  • The World: Pray for the Poverty in China[c]
  • Your Country: Christian Education Institutions
  • Yourself: Greater insight into Scripture
  • Your concerns for today
Out of the depths I cry to you, Lord. Hear my voice and let Your ears be attentive to my cry for mercy. [Psalm 130:1-2]

   3.   Admit: “…Forgive us our sin as we forgive those who sin against us…”

I know that You, Father God, have settled the matter: though my sins are like scarlet, they’ll be as white as snow before You. Though they are red as crimson, they’ll be like wool. [Isaiah 1:18]

   4.   Protect: “…Lead us not into temptation but delivers us from evil.”

Lord, thank-you that You’ve told me these things, so that in You I may have peace. In this world I’ll have trouble. But I can take heart because You’ve overcome the world. [John 16:33]

“For Yours Lord is the Kingdom, the Power and the Glory now and forever. Amen!”

When Jesus was questioned, tested, tricked or in His hour of great need, He always spoke things that were previously written in God’s Word.[d] Following these memory verses from ten topics, will help you learn 52 verses from the bible in a year! THIS WEEK’S MEMORY VERSE: An Assured Future
