Lenten Devotional - Day 1

Read:

Psalm 69


Think:

Have you ever felt alone? Have you ever felt like David in verses 1-3? The crazy thing about anxiety and depression is that even as Christians it takes near death or rock bottom for us to call out, “Save me, O God!”


We live in a culture of self-care and self-reliance. We, as American, post-modern, Christians, will seek every other solution, advice, or self-help—all of which are viable and useful in ways—before crying out to God. Our pride lets everything fall apart before we fall to our knees in prayer.


It is not weakness to admit you need God to intervene. It is strength. It’s not shameful to call upon the Lord first. It is wisdom and freedom. So, with humble honesty, what kind of strength do you need from God right now? What will it take for you to be more zealous and passionate for your relationship with Christ?


Pray:

God, I need you. I need you in every way and every day. Ignite in me not only a need, but an unquenchable desire for you. Set a passionate zeal in my bones for your name. Let me wake every day and step into my community (home, work, or neighborhood) on a mission to see others come to know the one who “takes care of me, whose mercy is so plentiful.”


Apply:

Flood your environment with visual and audio reminders of who your God truly is (i.e., listen to worship music, write scripture on your walls, get in the Word, etc.). As you take your first step into any building, pray that God would make you bold and brazen in HIS Name
