Reading God’s Word: Hebrews 11:32-12:17, Psalm 136:10-14
Meditating on God’s Word: Hebrews 12:11-13 No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it. Therefore, strengthen your feeble arms and weak knees. “Make level paths for your feet,” so that the lame may not be disabled, but rather healed.
Memorizing God’s Word: Hebrews 10:25 not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
Praying God’s Word: “Lord, forgive me for hating the discipline that you bring. It’s painful at times, and I hate stopping the things that feel good to my body and heart. I’d prefer to just be left to “follow my heart” and to do the things that feel good, and stop doing the things that feel bad. But God thank you for your mercy and your gracious discipline that guides me toward you, that pursues my heart. Train me to be strengthened and to be healed. Amen.”
