Feb 7th 2021 · Day 38
Today, we take some time out to pray. Prayer is not just asking God for things, but rather prayer is an opportunity to be with God and see God for who He really is.
Psalm 34 says,
Oh, magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together! I sought the Lord, and he answered me and delivered me from all my fears.Psalm 34:3-4
These verses encourage us to magnify the Lord. A magnifying glass can make small words big. A telescope can bring distant things close. As we look through the lens, things come into focus that are too small or too far away with our naked eyes.
As you pray today, fix your eyes on Jesus. Exalt him and thank Him continually, tell him how worthy he is. We are bringing his presence close to us. The bible says, 'if we draw near to God he will draw near to us' (James 4:8). The Psalm goes on to say 'he answered me and delivered me from all my fears'.
We are in difficult times, keep looking through the lens of faith, and keep believing that as you keep your eyes on Jesus, you will get through this. He will answer and deliver us all.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, help us to remember that you are near. You showed us how much you loved us by dying for us on the cross.
Spend some time just adoring God.
