Praying the Scriptures

Daniel 2: 19 – 23
During the night the mystery was revealed to Daniel in a vision.  Then Daniel praised the God of heaven and said:
‘Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever;
Wisdom and power are his.
He changes times and seasons;
He sets up kings and deposes them.
He gives wisdom to the wise
And knowledge to the discerning.
He reveals deep and hidden things;
He knows what lies in darkness,
And light dwells with him.
I thank and praise you, O God of my fathers:
You have made known to me what we asked of you,
You have made known to us the dream of the king.’

When studying the word of God this morning I read my daily reading in Daniel this morning and as I was feeling a downcast and without hope I read these words and it made sense to me.  I redirected my focus and took it off myself and turned it back to the Lord my God.  Reading the first two books of Daniel and seeing that our God revealed to Daniel the Kings dream.  What an awesome God we serve.  In reading the passages I came to the conclusion that I need to stay focused on God and not me.  God will make my paths straight and He will direct my footsteps.  

Praise the Lord with me today and take heart that we can focus our attention on a Higher being, our Lord Jesus Christ.  J

And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 This promise is for you. It is also for your children and for all who are far away. It is for everyone the Lord our God calls to himself.” 40 Peter warned them with many other words. He begged them, “Save yourselves from the evil of today’s people!”
I say we are too caught up in our own little worlds, we believe that we are capable of so much and that when times are difficult then we call on the Lord Jesus.  When nothing happens and we do not receive answered prayers we lose hope and start looking for new ways to get out of the mess we find ourselves in.
In the International Children’s Bible we read that “change your hearts and lives and be baptized,”  the words that stood out for me is “change your hearts and lives.”  I have been thinking about these words.  Something m…
