and you have persevered and have patience, and have labored for My name's sake and have not become weary. Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love. Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lampstand from its place--unless you repent. Rev 2:3-5 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, help us recover our first love for Jesus.
He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give to eat from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of God." ' Rev 2:7 (NKJV)
Jesus, please give us ears to hear you and hearts to hearken to your word.
"Behold, the days are coming," says the Lord GOD, "That I will send a famine on the land, Not a famine of bread, Nor a thirst for water, But of hearing the words of the LORD. Am 8:11 (NKJV)
Father, we are in such a famine; haver mercy on us and make your word shine forth among us. Let the rain of your Spirit fall on us and refresh us.
You have tested my heart; You have visited me in the night; You have tried me and have found nothing; I have purposed that my mouth shall not transgress. Concerning the works of men, by the word of Your lips, I have kept away from the paths of the destroyer. Uphold my steps in Your paths, that my footsteps may not slip. Ps 17:3-5 (NKJV)
Lord Jesus, I long to be nourished by your word; I long to hear you speak to my heart and mind. Thank you.
A Word Received: Look to me when the fields are dry and the crop withers for lack of rain. Look to me and ask for the rain of my Holy Spirit; I will refresh you.
