Daily Windows for the week of Jan. 29-Feb. 4

SUNDAY

What would help you find rest and value in the LORD?

Morning and Midday
Be at rest once more, O my soul,
for the Lord has been good to you.
For you, O Lord, have delivered my soul from death,
my eyes from tears,
my feet from stumbling,
that I may walk before the Lord
in the land of the living. (Psalm 116:7-9)

Evening
O God! Thou has made us for Thyself and our souls are restless, searching, till they find their rest in Thee. (Augustine)

MONDAY

What do you want to surrender today – and what do you want to ask for in exchange?

Morning and Midday
Do not waste time arguing over godless ideas and old wives’ tales. Instead, train yourself to be godly. “Physical training is good, but training for godliness is much better, promising benefits in this life and in the life to come.” This is a trustworthy saying, and everyone should accept it. This is why we work hard and continue to struggle, for our hope is in the living God, who is the Savior of all people and particularly of all believers.  [1 Timothy 4:7-10, New Living Translation]

Evening
The reason some of us are such poor specimens of Christianity is because we have no Almighty Christ. We have Christian attributes and experiences, but there is no abandonment to Jesus Christ.  [Oswald Chambers]

TUESDAY 

What would help you be more aware of God’s presence today?

Morning and Midday
Now what I am commanding you today is not too difficult for you or beyond your reach. It is not up in heaven, so that you have to ask, “Who will ascend into heaven to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?” Nor is it beyond the sea, so that you have to ask, “Who will cross the sea to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?” No, the word is very near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart so you may obey it.  [Deuteronomy 30:11-14]

Evening
Faith is a receiving, or still better, a taking of God’s proffered gifts. We may believe, and come, and commit, and rest, but we will not fully realize all our blessing until we begin to receive and come into the attitude of abiding and taking. [A.B. Simpson]

WEDNESDAY

What reminds you of all the reasons you have to be grateful?

Morning and Midday
I am still confident of this: I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.  [Psalm 27:13-14]

Evening
For all the good things I do have and for all the good things I have had and for all the good things I will have, for what I am, for what I have been, for what I can be, for what I shall be, thank you, God.  [Joan Bel Geddes]

THURSDAY

What is the next step of commitment and action for you to join what God is doing in the world?

Morning and Midday
As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.  [Ephesians 4:1-3, NIV]

Evening
Will God ever ask you to do something you are not able to do? The answer is yes—all the time! It must be that way, for God’s glory and kingdom. If we function according to our ability alone, we get the glory; if we function according to the power of the Spirit within us, God gets the glory. He wants to reveal Himself to a watching world.  [Henry T. Blackaby]

FRIDAY

What nagging and persistent habits or patterns do you need to confess?

Morning and Midday
I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. [Ephesians 1:18]

Evening
There is no other way in which we can gain the victory over the world. We must get above it. We must see it from the side of our great reward. Then it looks like earthly objects after we have gazed upon the sun for a while. We are blind to them. When the Italian fruit-seller finds that he is heir to a ducal palace you cannot tempt him any more with the paltry profits of his trade or the company of his old associates. He is above it all. They who know the hope of their calling and the riches of the glory of their inheritance can well despise the world. It is the poor starving ones who go hungering for the husks of earth. We are born from above and have a drawing to go home. Let us go forth today with our hearts on the homestretch. [A.B. Simpson]

SATURDAY

What areas of need are difficult for you to admit?

Morning and Midday
So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it. [Hebrews 4:16, New Living Translation]

Evening
When your burden becomes too heavy, when life’s ways become too dark, when the heart is too sore, when you are ready to perish, it is not amiss to pray to God to open the heavens, and through a rift in the sky to shine down into your heart some of the light of the Glory World. [B. H. Carroll]
