Open the Grace {Day Twenty} 40 Gifts for 40 Days

“This is the shortest song in the whole collection, but there is none greater or grander in its expression of praise.” (G. Campbell Morgan) “Martin Luther devoted thirty-six pages to this psalm, expounding it in four important categories: (1) prophecy (the Gentiles will participate in gospel blessings), (2) revelation (the kingdom of Christ is not earthly and temporal but rather heavenly and eternal), (3) instruction (we are saved by faith alone and not by works, wisdom, or holiness), and (4) admonition (we should praise God for such a great salvation).” (James Montgomery Boice)https://

Father, we lift up every tribe, tongue, & nation.

May our hearts be knit together for Your glory & purpose.

How great is Your Love toward us.

Faithful in all Your ways.

Oh that our lives would reflect Your nature in the earth.

Amen.

For there is neither Jew nor Greek; slave nor free; male nor female; for all of us are one in Christ.

Galatians 3:28

We’re at the halfway point of our Lenten journey…

A good time to take pause & consider what the Father might be speaking to our hearts.

Today’s Gift of Grace is 10 Questions to Consider…

Open the Grace {Day Twenty} 40 Gifts for 40 Days

{1} What Gifts of Grace do I see in my everyday rhythms?

{2} Do I practice praise through every circumstance?

{3} Does familiarity keep me from seeing areas where I might need change?

{4} Am I willing to do the deep work—practicing presence over perfection?

{5} Where am I spending my time, energy, & finances?

{6} Is making space for rest a priority or even a possibility?

{7} How do I practice gratitude?

{8} In what ways can I experience receiving His strength in my weakness?

{9} What am I willing to give up in order to live a fully surrendered life?

{10} Is prayer the place I go for peace?

“Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.”

Romans 8:26
