«God, make a fresh start in me, shape a Genesis week from the chaos of my life.» (Psalm 51:10, MSG)
——- —- —- —-
God spoke the world into existence, and he spoke you into your mother’s womb. Even now, he can speak into the chaos of your life to bring it shape and form.
This is a Genesis event (Psalm 51:10, MSG) – where God speaks into the void and the darkness of your life, creating a fresh start for you.
God can create something from nothing; he can take a heart that is broken, impure, or failed and create a heart that is whole, pure, and purposeful. God loves you and wants to pour his grace into your life. He wants to see you pure, and he wants to see you succeed – so much so that he takes an active role in creating your new heart and bringing order to the chaos of your life.
Your job is to submit to his sovereignty, humble yourself before him, and ask for his help.
Lord, speak a Genesis moment into our hearts, into our lives, into the circumstances we now face. We acknowledge that «everything that we have – right thinking and right living, a clean slate and a fresh start – comes from God by way of Jesus Christ.» (1 Cor. 1:30, MSG)
Renew in us a steadfast spirit (Psalms 51:10, NIV), no longer chaotic or moved by events, circumstances, or feelings, no longer «… shaped by things and feelings, instead of by God.» (Colossians 3:5, MSG)
Give us a life shaped by you. Give us your spirit, flowing through us like a river of living water.
· Where you see chaos, let God speak into your life, creating a new, God-generated life. Pray, «God, make a fresh start in me, shape a Genesis week from the chaos of my life.» (Psalm 51:10, MSG)
· Steadfast spirit – How would your life be different if you were led and powered by a steadfast spirit? Pray, Oh God, «… renew a steadfast spirit within me. (Psalms 51:10, NIV)
· Shaped by Christ – Fit «every loose thought and emotion and impulse into the structure of life shaped by Christ.» (2 Corinthians 10:5, MSG)
· Where? – Where do you need a Genesis-event spoken into your life today?
