Join me in reading through the Bible in One Year! We will follow a reading plan together and go beyond just reading the Bible, to studying it. We will post about the passage and learn from each other as we grow in our walk with the Lord.
Join me in the pursuit of discernment!
2 Lord, I have heard of your fame; I stand in awe of your deeds, Lord. Repeat them in our day, in our time make them known; in wrath remember mercy.
I don't know about you, but I've prayed this prayer. In my life, it has been a prayer of resignation. "Ok, God, I get it. This has to happen, and I'm not excited about it, but I know you. I know your works and I stand in awe of them. Do it again! Remember your mercy and show your awesomeness in my life."
Matthew Henry states in his commentary that this prayer is an act of devotion. I agree. Sometimes prayer, when its the last thing you want to do, must be the first thing you do. Be devoted to God, keep praying. And call upon His mercy, which is far greater than anything we can do.
