Reading God’s Word: Nehemiah 10, Psalm 88      

Memorizing God’s Word:  2 Corinthians 12:9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”  Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.

Meditating on God’s Word: Nehemiah 10:39b We will not neglect the house of our God.

Praying God’s Word:  Dear Jesus, thank you for the high points of my walk with you. When with great devotion I make promises and commitments to you, just as the Israelites did in Nehemiah.  But forgive me when later I go back on my commitments.  Then as my life goes on, remind me to breathe in your Spirit and breathe out the spiritual toxins which deter me from keeping my promises.  Help my trust in you deepen as I obey; and our relationship continues to grow.  Amen
