In our society and our human nature it is easy to get so self-absorbed and to think only about me, myself and I. And sadly if we are honest we can bring this sort of thinking into our walk with God. But I believe God is a big picture God and He wants His people to think and see beyond their own lives.
I love what Paul says in Galatians 2:20; “I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”
In this two part devotional split over two days, my prayer is for us to focus in on what God is doing and what He wants to do beyond our own lives.
For today, take time to pray and intercede for your city as you listen and pray out the words of this song.
God has a specific plan and purpose for your city, take some time to hear His heart and ask Him how you can partner with Him to see His plan unfold.
“Work to see that the city where I sent you as exiles enjoys peace and prosperity. Pray to the LORD for it. For as it prospers you will prosper.” - Jeremiah 29:7
