Word Wednesday is posted every Wednesday. Each week I post a scripture that I've read that week that has spoken to me in a fresh way. I believe that if we read God's Word every day, He will give us at least one scripture every week that will impact us. My hope is to see others comment and share a scripture that they have read.
Right now, I'm in the Psalms, which is great stuff for a worship leader. I've read several really cool verses, but the scripture that has stuck out to me the most this week is:
Psalm 67:1-2 ESV
1. May God be gracious to us and bless us and make his face to shine upon us, Selah
2. that your way may be known on earth, your saving power among all nations.
This is a prayer for God's kindness and blessing in our life, which I've prayed too many times to count, but this one is different than what I usually pray. In verse 2 it shows the reason and motive for the prayer. "That your way may be known on earth". Wow! This scripture has given me a new way to pray. Even as God blesses my life, I should want it for God's glory and not my own. That's really easy to say, but not so easy to pray.
What's your Word?
