O Lord My God!

Revelation 9    Nehemiah 12    Psalm 104:1-23

Once you have read the day’s texts, I invite you to further reflect upon a portion of these scriptures following the “lectio divina” pattern we have been using from time to time. May God work within your soul during this time of quiet listening. Amen.

“Bless the Lord, O my soul.
O Lord my God, you are very great.
You are clothed with honor and majesty,
wrapped in light as with a garment.”
– Psalm 104:1,2

“The rest of humankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent. — Revelation 9:20

Listen. Hear God Speaking. Prayerfully read Psalm 104:1,2 and Revelation 9:20 three times, each time answering these questions:
What?  (What word or phrase strikes me most in the texts at this moment?)
So What?  (What is going on in my life that is influencing my hearing?)
Now What? (What is God encouraging me to be and do in my circumstance now?)
As this time of listening draws to a close, give yourself over to God in prayer. Allow the prayer of Samuel to guide you: “Speak, Lord, for your servant is listening” (1 Samuel 3:9-10).

Share The Word. What spoke to you in these scriptures? What work of transformation is God doing in you now? What work is God calling you into as a response to the word? Consider sharing with someone today any insights gained . . .

“O Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder
consider all the worlds thy hands have made . . .
Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee:
How great thou art, how great thou art!”
–  How Great Thou Art
