SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY- PSALM 86:11-13
Teach me your way, O LORD, that I may walk in your truth; unite my heart to fear your name. I give thanks to you, O Lord my God, with my whole heart, and I will glorify Your name forever. For great is Your steadfast love for me; You have delivered my soul from the depths of Sheol. (Psalms 86:11-13 ESV)
Thought of the day
It is important to look to God for help when we are in the midst of a trial. Aaron mentions his personal story and how this passage showed him to not only ask for help, but seek the Lord to show Him His ways and draw closer to His presence through worship.
Questions to ponder
1.) When was the last time you went through a trial? Do you feel you drew closer to the Lord during this time?
2.) What is a current trial you are going through? When is a good time to meet with God, today, and worship Him in spite of the trial?
My first encounter with Take the City was going to Wilson Apartments in Columbus GA. We were met by a man from that neighborhood who prayed with us before we began the outreach. We set up an area for the kids to play and others went door to door witnessing and praying for people. It truly was a humbling experience. Another time I got to pray at an abortion clinic which was another humbling experience. The worship services the night before are always dynamic and spirit led. However I will conclude with the best part for me was being an eight week participant of Take the City boot camp. All of the leaders were simply AWESOME and I learned so much during those eight weeks. I thank God for all these wonderful opportunities!
