Pray:

Ask God to orient or reorient you to Himself. Confess any known sin. Thank Him for His forgiveness. Be still and reflect on Jesus and His sacrifice for you. Ask the Holy Spirit to open your heart and mind to God’s Word.  Pray for others in your life that they, too, would know and love God today.

Read:

Psalm 103:19-22

“The LORD has established His throne in heaven, and His kingdom rules over all. Praise the LORD, you His angels, you mighty ones who do His bidding, who obey His word. Praise the LORD, all His heavenly hosts, you His servants who do His will. Praise the LORD, all His works everywhere in His dominion. Praise the LORD, O my soul.”

Understand:

The Lord has established His reign; His royal power and dominion. The LORD is King over ALL; His throne is in heaven and His authority is universal!  His rule is unchanging and eternal.

Now David is calling to the angels in heaven to praise and worship the Lord! David is making a universal call to worship the LORD.

Apply:

Take some time and worship the King!

Know that you don’t have to live up to a certain standard before God accepts you; He want’s you just as you are. Remember that God’s righteousness is available to all who put their faith in Christ—a righteousness given through Jesus Christ to all who believe. It is Christ alone who makes us right with God.

Is there anything that is keeping you from laying down your guilt, your shame, your sin, at the feet of Jesus? Would you give it to Jesus today? Stop trying to make things right on your own.

Experience the freedom that David and countless other believers have experienced through the forgiveness of God. Would you rest in Him?

Join in David’s call to praise the Lord! Lift your voice in praise to “the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, and to Him be honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen.”

Live:

(Personalize this prayer today; make it specific to the circumstances that face you.) Ask God to lead you through His Spirit as you go through your day. Ask Him to bring to mind the truth of the gospel and its implications for what you will encounter today. Tell Him “Yes” to His will and ask Him for His power and protection to live this “yes.” Ask God to create and reveal opportunities to proclaim the good news today. KEEP PRAYING THROUGHOUT YOUR DAY.
