Prayer to the LORD, Our Peace

Your love reaches to the heavens and down to us. Your love is everywhere and Your peace emanates from everything You have created. How we wait in expectant hope for how You will manifest yet again in that which human experts say is hopeless so that all will know without doubt that You alone are God. We trust in You and revel in the wonder that You are. In Jesus' name, Amen

Sometimes when the news circulating is dire, it is good to pause and focus on the Lord for He is our Peace.  Simply because of who He is and what He promises, we have nothing to fear. We can contemplate the wonder of the God we are blessed to know and serve and just focus on the blessings of this moment and His presence in our circumstances.  This is worship–eyes on Him, extoling Him in light of who He is and His promises. Worship is our offering to Him–an expression of our trust.  And by it, we are strengthened for the next moment of what is unknown but to all but our Lord. In addition, He responds to our worship with an outpouring of His power into our circumstances beyond what we ever could have imagined. What a mighty God, we serve!  Oh, Lord, we can receive Your peace, for our Peace is who You are! Let us pray.  ~ Elizabeth

Wonderful Savior, magnificent Lord, You reign. As far as the heavens are above the earth stretches Your authority. Nothing is outside Your span of ultimate control. You allow evil to exist and this is anything which chooses to follow self-rule over Yours—pretending that by our choice we can actually have authority over ourselves to lead good lives.

But there is no goodness outside You. And what the enemy means for evil, You do use for ultimate eternal good. You see that which treats us in ways and causes us to have hard experiences which never would have been Your will for us. Your right hand prepares a response and Your infinite compassionate loving heart—while Comforter even now—longs to wipe every tear away.  And this you will do when once our battle and choices here are done and evermore we are in Your presence.

There we will be ever in Your love where there is nothing but Your love. With You finally forever, all that is not of You will have lost its temporary hold and power and have fallen away where it is no more.

Majesty, Majesty, Majesty, You are. How great You are with Your ways beyond our understanding!

We are so thankful to You that You are not leaving us to find our own way out of this exile for You know we cannot. It’s how you created us! You have a rescue plan of restoration and reconciliation to relationship with You so we can receive once again that life for which you created us.

Awesome God, how wonderful You are! There are no words in the languages You have enabled us to develop—based on what we see, know and understand with our human, God-made capacity–to express how thankful we are for You, only You. Majesty, how we love You!  How we adore You!

Your plans are from eternity to eternity and You are never finished using all plots with which the enemy strategizes to destroy in order to bring Your eternal good to Your many children. So thank You, Lord for this day. Thank You for the beauty You have placed in it beyond all the enemy’s schemes. Thank You for the stunningly exquisite work You are constantly about taking what looks to be damaged goods and knitting them into something beautiful.

The tapestry You weave together of all our lives is magnificent beyond description in the eyes of all those who choose to look to You.  Therefore once again today, we rejoice that You are the Master Designer as we wait with childlike giddy anticipation and expectation for the unveiling of each new piece of Your awe-inspiring, intricate perfect design, which with our human sensibilities we cannot possibly imagine.  You surprise us and fill us with great joy!

Personally, I thank You for Your design so far in my life, in the lives of all I love and all those for whom I am blessed to intercede. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Holy, holy, holy are You! Thank You for Your eternal, conquering, infinitely victorious reign!

I am a God-seeker--a Jesus-worshipper--a Holy Spirit follower. I create songs, devotions, prayers, books and Bible studies to give words with which to get to know God more. For you. Its for one-on-One encounter unto transformed, transcendent living. This is not my vocation. I am not professional. I am a real, ordinary person just looking to do what God put me here to do. (You have a unique purpose too.) So I am called to the work. It is not my income source, but my gift to those who find it blessing. Eagles Nest Foundation sponsors all projects for you. The result: pure, clean spiritual nutrition to feed that deep insatiable spiritual hunger which eventually overtakes each of us and galvanizes you to the life God has for you. This life is purposeful. Exceptional. You--yes, you--are called to something greater and more satisfying in His service. So it is hoped you'll try this spiritually dense nutrition and find it to be a personal blessing. However, the goodness of God-following doesn't stop there. He uses those who seek Him to be His love and care (justice, mercy, advocate, kindness) very tangibly in the lives of those around you. Not by your power but by His. His ideas. God ideas. Not just good ideas. To be part of changing the world, if you will let Him. You learn to just follow where He leads. That if you listen, He will teach you to hear His voice and then when you obey His inner promptings you will become His incredible hands and feet in this hard world. These materials will help! They will help you aim your life towards God in a way you never look back. You will not be the same. He will become the River in your desert spaces and you will become a conduit of this same River of refreshing, replenishing Water of Life to others. Find a prayer. Pick a blog post. Read a book. Be led deeper into the Bible. Select a song which resonates and use it and use it again to go close and ever closer to the God who longs to draw you near. Oh, and don't be tempted to think I'm a crazy over-spiritualized loony...My background is financial planning and counseling. Almost 40 years of it. To choose to believe in God is not to leave practicality and reason behind, but to learn that there is that which goes beyond it and includes it, unto true life fulfillment beyond all your dreams for the one who keeps seeking Him. I am a third generation Californian. I am a person to whom family means everything. The only priority higher is God. The foothills of the Sierra Nevada are my home. It is here the 1849-1856 Gold Rush is still glorified. Easy money? Actually only for the few. Even though I was raised in the Church, it took me ten years of doubting God even existed to realize that without Him, no matter how much of this life's "stuff" is accumulated, I actually have nothing. To come to know that all those who chased after gold are dead and all those who still chase stuff will be dead. That's when I became a God-seeker. Looking for that more. And Eureka! (This is California's state slogan and means I found it.) I found God...or rather, I discovered He was there and had been there waiting for me to look for Him the whole time. May you discover more of Him for you, greater flourishing life and greater flourishing for all in the world as well. God bless you! ~Elizabeth
