Christian Devotions

Christian devotions are pauses in our busy schedules to refocus on what's important in life.  This Godprint devotion uses God's creations to remind us that God is mighty and continues to work all around us!


Our Mighty God   
GodPrints:  Christian Devotions

Meditate:

"I will meditate on all your works and consider all your mighty deeds."  - Psalm 77:12

In this Psalm written by Asaph (the collector; a Levite priest that led the music during the time of David), he encourages us to meditate on all God's works and mighty deeds. Take time to read this complete Psalm in your Bible or here Psalm 77

This week, beginning with today, begin to focus and reflect upon God's works - His creation, His mighty deeds throughout history, His work within your own heart and life.

When you enjoy the sun's light, realize the Creator of the universe placed it there and desires for you to be a light for Him.

When you look into the face of your child, thank Your Holy Father for his goodness and blessings.

Think about the great men and women of history such as Abraham, Joseph, Ruth, Mary, Abraham Lincoln, Corrie ten Boone, and millions of others that trusted the one true God.

Meditate on how He used each of them to make a difference in this world, and know that our Soveriegn God has a plan and purpose for you too. 

Prayer

Father, I thank you for the beauty of your creation all around me!  You spoke and the world came into being.  By Your breath life began.  Please help me see You at work all around me and in me.

Activate:

Each day this week, jot down at least five things dealing with God's works and mighty deeds that you have taken time to think about. Also take the time to share a few of these with your children, your coworkers, your spouse or your neighbor.

Here are a few to get you started:

  • The sky with clouds, the sun, moon & stars are not only the work of His hands, He ordained them; He is in control.  Psalm 8:3 - "When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, The moon and the stars, which You have ordained;"
  • Pick up a rock and let it remind you of David with his five stones and slingshot.  God was with him working out His plan in David's life.(1 Samuel 17)  Or a rock can remind us of Peter when Jesus called him a pebble and Peter's profession of faith that Jesus as the Messiah, the Son of the Living God, the rock on which He would build His church. (Matthew 16:13-20)
  • Grass or birds can remind you of God's faithfulness to care for us.  (Matthew 6:25-34)
  • Water can remind us that He is the Living Water bringing refreshment into our lives and quenching our unending thirst. (John 4)
  • Read others' testimonies of how God worked in their lives and become aware of Him working in yours.

God reveals Himself both through His Word and His world.  Let's begin combining the two and recognize Him working all around us and in us.
