ADORATION – Reflect on God’s Greatness

GOD IS ETERNAL  God has always existed. God does not have a beginning. He will have no end.

Isaiah 40:28
Have you never heard? Have you never understood?
The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of all the earth.
He never grows weak or weary. No one can measure the depths of his understanding.

Praise the God who is Eternal
Before time began, God existed. Before the mountains stood, God was present. Leaders, celebrities, fashion, and technology all come and go but God will always be. Praise God because He always has been and He will be forever.

CONFESSION: Confess your sins to God and receive his continued mercy.

“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” 1 John 1:9

THANKSGIVING: Giving thanks to God for his specific blessings in our lives.

“Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs. Know that the Lord is God. It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.” Psalm 100

SUPPLICATION: Bringing our requests to God.

  • Bring your personal prayer requests to God.
  • Pray for the lost. Ask God to give you opportunity to have gospel conversations with those who do not know him.
  • Pray for Onelink as they process student applications and prepare for Summer trips.

SCRIPTURE READING:

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 New Living Translation
Always be joyful. 17 Never stop praying. 18 Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.

SCRIPTURE REFLECTION:
Pray continually. Tomorrow is Thanksgiving. Perhaps family is arriving or has arrived. Perhaps you have traveled or are traveling. Maybe you are alone. There are many things to occupy your mind today. Many thoughts of joy or sadness. Many thoughts of activity. Many thoughts of relational complexity. So many thoughts of so many different things. Turn your thoughts to the Lord right now. Speak to him, simply, honestly. “Hello Father, I’m here. I am…(sad, glad, scared, busy…).” “I want to love my family well, will you help me?” “I am lonely but I don’t want to be crushed by loneliness…please, help.” Now, as you leave this time of attention to the Lord ask him this… “Will you please help me keep you before my mind today? Will you help me just be a thought away from conversation with you?”
