SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY- ACTS 4:23-30
On their release, Peter and John went back to their own people and reported all that the chief priests and the elders had said to them. When they heard this, their raised their voices together in prayer to God. “Sovereign Lord,” they said, “you made the heavens and the earth and the sea, and everything in them. You spoke by the Holy Spirit through the mouth of your servant, our father David: ‘Why do the nations rage and the peoples plot in vain? The kings of the earth rise up and the rulers band together against the Lord and against his anointed one.’ Indeed Herod and Pontius Pilate met together with the Gentiles and the people of Israel in this city to conspire against your holy servant, Jesus, whom you anointed. They did what your power and will had decided beforehand should happen. Now, Lord, consider their threats and enable your servants to speak your word with great boldness. Stretch out your hand to heal and perform signs and wonders through the name of your holy servant Jesus.”
Thought of the day
We should model our prayers after the disciples in this passage by 1.) recognizing the sovereignty of God, 2) praying corporately together in community, and 3) asking the Lord to have His way in us that He might work through us.
Questions to ponder
-How has the Lord proved His sovereignty in your life? Take time to write these things down.
-Do you regularly pray with other believers? If not, what is preventing you from doing so?
-When was the last time you asked the Lord to fill you with boldness to speak His word to others? Are you willing to pray this prayer sincerely?
Take the City has had a huge impact on me and my daughter. When God led me from one place, this door was wide opened. I had the great ability to experience more of God and see the signs that follow them that believed. *Mark 16:17-20*The people I've met have showed soooooo much love to us and I'm grateful for that. Not only do they teach on truth, but they walk in the power of the Holy Spirit and encourage others around them to do so also! God has also allowed me to be a part of a ministry as well. I want to say thank you thank you God first and thank you to Take the City!!
