Daily Devotion Tuesday, June 25

Tuesday, June 25, 2013 – Psalm 123; 1 Samuel 6:1-16; Acts 5:27-42 and Luke 21:37-22:13

Luke 21:37-22:13 – 21:37Every day he was teaching in the temple, and at night he would go out and spend the night on the Mount of Olives, as it was called. 38And all the people would get up early in the morning to listen to him in the temple.

Jesus’ rhythm during his last days and maybe most of his life of ministry seems to have been; teach in the day time and be refreshed in God at night.

My rhythm has been and is morning devotions, 30 minutes of exercise (as I can get it in) and then begins my day. I do not have as good a rhythm for the ending of my day. So, I think I’ll take a hint from my Lord and build in time to spend evening time with God.

Psalm 123 – 1   To you I lift up my eyes,
O you who are enthroned in the heavens!

Yesterday Mackenzie asked me, “Grandpa, why do we close our eyes when we pray?” I told her it was one way of showing respect to God, but that it’s just as appropriate to open our eyes and lift them up to the Lord.

Today, you might just want to open your eyes as you lift them and your prayers unto God.

O Lord, thank you for this day that you did not promise me, yet are giving to me. I give thanks for the quiet time we spend together in the morning, guide me in finding ways to be with you in the evening and throughout the day. Amen.
