Day 18

Rest

from the Lent 2016 reading plan


Jonah 2:5-7


Take this day to catch up, sit in God’s presence, and read and reflect on the scripture below.

The waters engulfed me up to the neck;
the watery depths overcame me;
seaweed was wrapped around my head.
I sank to the foundations of the mountains;
the earth with its prison bars closed behind me forever!
But You raised my life from the Pit, Lord my God!
As my life was fading away,
I remembered Yahweh.
My prayer came to You,
to Your holy temple.
-Jonah 2:5-7 HCSB

    Heavenly Father. I know I shall not and must not live only concerned about bread. Give me a desire and love for every word that comes from you. My I write your word on my heart and listen to the Holy spirit that speaks through your word to convict me of sin, comfort me, and lead me to faith which grants righteousness.

  2. Isaac Jones says:

    Man is dead apart from God. Man needs God and needs to pray to God, that His prayers might raise up to the temple of God, and God deliver him.

  3. Isaac Jones says:

    Man is dead in his trespasses and sins. He lies at the bottom of the ocean unable to move or live. Man cries out to God who resides in the highest of places in his state of death. God hears mans prayer and gives life.

  4. Isaac Jones says:

    God is everywhere; He is even in the deep. God hears our prayers no matter where we are. God is Holy and is always in a temple by nature of His great Holiness.

  5. Isaac Jones says:

    I will pray knowing I am dead and my “righteousness” is dead without Christ.

  6. Adam H says:

    Even in our times of darkness, God is there for us. His grace is all we need and will be there for us when we are overwhelmed.

  7. Patrick Shen says:

    Jesus on the cross is the only true firmness that we can stand on. He is our rescuer.

  8. Patrick Shen says:

    We are helpless. We are slaves to circumstance.

  9. Patrick Shen says:

    God is my rescuer. I can put my hope in him.

  10. Patrick Shen says:

    I will remember and give thanks and rest.

  11. Patrick Shen says:

    Thank you lord for your goodness to me. I thank you for all that you did this week with my meetings with Colin and just over encouragement you’ve been. Ultimately though, I do not worship the gift but the giver. I bow my knee to you and I hold all these gifts back up to you with open hands. I will live in all that you have called me to . Thank you for your grace and peace.
