SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY- John 13:23
One of them, the disciple whom Jesus loved, was reclining next to Him (Jesus). (Jn. 13:23 NIV)
Thought for the day
Brandon shares that taking time to simply be with Jesus in a posture of rest can give us endurance and allow us to receive more of His word. John was the only one who didn’t fully abandon Jesus at the cross and He was the longest living disciple. He also received the revelation of the last days and gave us the book of Revelation. Let us be more like John and recline on the Lord in prayer as much as possible.
Questions to ponder
-Do you struggle with simply being with the Lord without an agenda? Take time to ask the Lord to help you with this.
-Do you see yourself as “the one who Jesus loves?”
-When today can you get alone with Jesus? What can you do to put away distractions that you may simply be with Him?
“Getting to be a part of Take the City was such a blessing both in seeing how God moved in the lives of the people I met as well as how he moved in my heart. I was so encouraged to be surrounded by people willing to passionately pray for their city and the people in it. As we worshipped, people would stop and ask what was going on and we got to talk and pray with them. I felt a greater desire to pray for our nation grow in me as we sang and prayed together.”
