{ Day 183 }

I have not departed from your laws, for you yourself have taught me. How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth! I gain understanding from your precepts; therefore I hate every wrong path. Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path. —Psalm 119:102-105

David refused to live with less than the very highest God would give him in his day. He never let himself feel disqualified by his weaknesses, but he contended mightily for the release of God's power during his generation. He caught a glimpse of God's zeal for His people and became convinced that the Lord would release His power for the benefit of the entire nation of Israel. In David's generation, God's power was often expressed in military feats. Therefore, entering into all that God would give his generation translated into military conquest of enemies. The principle today is the same, though not expressed in military terms. But like David, we must refuse to draw back until we experience God's full power for our generation. When we get caught up in the glorious emotions that burn within God's heart as David did, we begin to see the tremendous, unprecedented blessing and power God has planned for this hour in history. We lose our ability to settle for same ol', same ol'. We burn like torches with strong vision as our fuel.

{ PRAYER STARTER }

God, what is Your plan for my generation? What are You doing in my world today? Reveal to me the path I am to take to be a part of Your great plan.

We become people who contend for the power of
God available to our generation.
