Holy Spirit, help us see and hear and remember the things Jesus has done in our lives.
When I broke the five loaves for the five thousand, how many baskets full of fragments did you take up?" They said to Him, "Twelve." "Also, when I broke the seven for the four thousand, how many large baskets full of fragments did you take up?" And they said, "Seven." So He said to them, "How is it you do not understand?" Mark 8:19-21 (NKJV)
Jesus, please give us understanding of your bounty.
Tell me, you who desire to be under the law, do you not hear the law? Galatians 4:21 (NKJV)
Father, please help us recognize when we desire to be under the law again, and repent of that.
For it is written: "Rejoice, O barren, you who do not bear! Break forth and shout, you who are not in labor! For the desolate has many more children than she who has a husband." Galatians 4:27 (NKJV)
Lord Jesus, make our lives fruitful where they are currently barren.
He is despised and rejected by men, a Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him; He was despised, and we did not esteem Him. Surely He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed Him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. Isaiah 53:3-4 (NKJV)
Jesus, thank you that you know and understand our sorrows.
But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed. Isaiah 53:5 (NKJV)
Lord, we have wounded you by our transgressions.
Therefore I will divide Him a portion with the great, and He shall divide the spoil with the strong, because He poured out His soul unto death, and He was numbered with the transgressors, and He bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors. Isaiah 53:12 (NKJV)
Jesus, thank you for interceding for us.
I will praise the LORD according to His righteousness, and will sing praise to the name of the LORD Most High. Psalm 7:17 (NKJV)
LORD, help me recognize and praise your righteousness.
How precious is Your lovingkindness, O God! Therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of Your wings. They are abundantly satisfied with the fullness of Your house, and You give them drink from the river of Your pleasures. For with You is the fountain of life; in Your light we see light. Psalm 36:7-9 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, help me drink deeply of your fountain of living waters and life.
A word received: You are in my hand; don't be afraid. I AM with you.
