He said to them, "But who do you say that I am?" Simon Peter answered and said, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God." Jesus answered and said to him, "Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven. Matthew 16:15-17 (NKJV)
Father, please reveal your son Jesus to all of his disciples.
And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven." Matthew 16:19 (NKJV)
Jesus, please help me release all things into your care.
Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall. 1 Corinthians 10:12 (NKJV)
Jesus, please hold me up steady lest I fall.
Hear, all you peoples! Listen, O earth, and all that is in it! Let the Lord GOD be a witness against you, the Lord from His holy temple. Micah 1:2 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, help me listen to you and heed your words.
Your testimonies are very sure; holiness adorns Your house, O LORD, forever. Psalm 93:5 (NKJV)
LORD, let your testimonies be held in honor among us and let holiness adorn your household forever.
A Word Received: Listen; listen for my word to you. Heed my word and do it.
