Portents: Word Ambassadors: Prayers and Poetry



                        Portents
           

Portents in the heavens

speak His words

                        earth’s ground
           
                        nature rises in obedience

                        watch, listen, discern,

                        time does not arrive

                        un-announced.

Reflections: Signs: Word Ambassadors: Prayers and Poetry



Reflection Questions


1.     Think of a personal situation that caught you completely off guard but when you began to process you began to see a pattern. What would have helped you to prepare ahead of time had you the ability to perceive or receive warnings.

2.     Even in situations when a warning could not have been given ahead, how did the Lord’s words carry you through because of previous challenges you had faced with Him?

Share: What word of hope would you give to someone who has been given a difficult “sign”?

Signs: Word Ambassadors: Prayers and Poetry


Reading: Acts 2:19

“And I will show portents in the heaven above and signs on the earth below, blood, and fire, and smoky mist.”

How often do we look up: literally and figuratively?

How often do we pause to recalibrate with family, friends, work, God?

How often do we ask the Spirit to search out our heart motives and winnow out any false attitudes or goals that have crept in?

How often are we caught by surprise when caught in a personal upheaval?

Scientists have learned to track hurricanes, measure earthquakes, monitor volcanoes. They give as much warning as humanly possible when danger lurks, and yet, still, too often we ignore warnings. We become so confident over the storms that fizzle out that we stop watching and listening.

The Lord does not come unannounced.

We may be too absorbed to look and listen and watch and pray; but His signs for change will be spoken, whether words of warning or words of preparation. He will speak into our lives through our bodies, our souls, and our minds.

In nature His creation speaks. We watch sunrises and sunsets, cloud formations, wind and rain, to gauge our external environment and sometimes we listen. Sometimes His word is a quiet personal one to one message, as when He sent Ananias to heal Saul’s vision. Sometimes His word is worldwide as in the flood.

The Lord does not come unannounced.

Lord, please give us eyes to see, words to share, and hearts to trust and obey.


Psalm of Worship: Genesis 1:19

“And there was evening, and there was morning, the fourth day.”

Worthy: Word Ambassadors: Prayers and Poetry

         
           Worthy

           
We measure by

age, influence,

status, riches, as to

whom we consider

approved to deserve

supplications.

Worthy measured by

awe, heart humility

Spirit’s breathe

working through

all servants

slaves and free.

Words poured out in abundance.
