DAY TWO: AN UPPER ROOM POSTURE
“These all with one mind were continually devoting themselves to prayer.”
(ACTS 1: 14)
ADORATION: YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL TO BEHOLD
“Your eyes will see the King in His beauty…” (ISAIAH 33:17)
“But we all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory…” (2 CORINTHIANS 3:18)
“But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to myriads of angels, to the general assembly of the firstborn who are enrolled in Heaven, and to God…” (HEBREWS 12: 22-23)
“I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear; But now my eye sees You; Therefore I retract, And I repent in dust and ashes.” (JOB 42: 5-6)
We repent of being absorbed by the worries and pleasures of an earth-bound life, and not continually devoting ourselves to beholding Your transformative and empowering beauty.
We repent of trying to extend Your Kingdom through our own understanding instead of tasting Your glory that would make us witnesses of You.
“Oh, give ear, Shepherd of Israel, You who lead Joseph like a flock; You who are enthroned above the cherubim, shine forth!” (PSALM 80:1)
Father, give our generation the light of the knowledge of You in Christ. Disrupt and refine our routines so that we find the delights of Your upper room again!
Show us Your glory and make us one!
• What does it look like to have an “upper room posture” over the remainder of these 10 Days?
• Am I an “eye-witness” of Jesus in the world, speaking of what I have seen and experienced of Him?
• What parts of my witness to others is focused on opinions “about” Jesus rather than an “eye witness” account?
