YOU ARE MAKING WAY

Daily Prayer for August 23rd, 2020    

Good Sunday morning, God—thank you! 🙂

You are doing something brand-new. I can see it! In all sorts of ways as you continue to provide water for the sun-kissed earth. Your word says that you are making way for me. Please, help keep me alert, and in the present. You said to fear not, that you are with me—we who are custom-made to praise you. I desire to cheer you on, God; worship you all day long! In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Isaiah 43:16-21 The Message

16-21 This is what God says,
the God who builds a road right through the ocean,
who carves a path through pounding waves,
The God who summons horses and chariots and armies—
they lie down and then can’t get up;
they’re snuffed out like so many candles:
“Forget about what’s happened;
don’t keep going over old history.
Be alert, be present. I’m about to do something brand-new.
It’s bursting out! Don’t you see it?
There it is! I’m making a road through the desert,
rivers in the badlands.
Wild animals will say ‘Thank you!’
—the coyotes and the buzzards—
Because I provided water in the desert,
rivers through the sun-baked earth,
Drinking water for the people I chose,
the people I made especially for myself,
a people custom-made to praise me.

Joshua 1:9 ESV

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

Isaiah 41:10 ESV

10 fear not, for I am with you;
be not dismayed, for I am your God;
I will strengthen you, I will help you,
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Jeremiah 29:11 ESV

11 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.

1 John 4:18 ESV

18 There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.

Matthew 11:28 ESV

28 Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
