Morning Musical Devotional Pt. 4

I am back! I should be putting up some pictures of my Second foray in 2013, to Idaho, sometime today; But just in case it takes me a little longer to get back into the swing of things than I anticipated here is another musical devotional. I can’t wait to respond to all your comments!

Morning Question: What are you passionate about?

Morning Scripture:  Isaiah 26 1-12 NLT

In that day, everyone in the land of Judah will sing this song:

Our city is strong!
    We are surrounded by the walls of God’s salvation.
Open the gates to all who are righteous;
    allow the faithful to enter.
You will keep in perfect peace
    all who trust in you,
    all whose thoughts are fixed on you!
Trust in the Lord always,
    for the Lord God is the eternal Rock.
He humbles the proud
    and brings down the arrogant city.
    He brings it down to the dust.
The poor and oppressed trample it underfoot,
    and the needy walk all over it.

But for those who are righteous,
    the way is not steep and rough.
You are a God who does what is right,
    and you smooth out the path ahead of them.
Lord, we show our trust in you by obeying your laws;
    our heart’s desire is to glorify your name.
All night long I search for you;
    in the morning I earnestly seek for God.
For only when you come to judge the earth
    will people learn what is right.
10 Your kindness to the wicked
    does not make them do good.
Although others do right, the wicked keep doing wrong
    and take no notice of the Lord’s majesty.
11 O Lord, they pay no attention to your upraised fist.
    Show them your eagerness to defend your people.
Then they will be ashamed.
    Let your fire consume your enemies.

12 Lord, you will grant us peace;
    all we have accomplished is really from you.

Morning Prayer: Lord I am passionate about many things but I realize You are the Giver of Dreams. You have put passions inside of me and they need to be directed and led. You have to be allowed to rule my passions. So I allow that. Today I make You king of my passions. Rule them. Guide them. Develop them and cause me to realize my dreams. For you are the God who is able to do beyond all that I could ever ask or imagine. Thank You Jesus A-men.

  1. Wow, how powerful is this message and your prayer! You helped me realize my passion and desire is to glorify His name. In glorifying His name we come to know and realize our dreams. Blessings and dreams!

  2. My passion? I believe time is running out and I have family and friends who do not know the Lord.
    In the words of Ralph Spaulding Cushman:
    Set us afire, Lord,
    Stir us, we pray!
    While the world perishes
    We go our way,
    Purposeless, passionless,
    Day after day.
    Set us afire, Lord,
    Stir us, we pray!
