QUICK DEVOTIONAL: Read the words in blue.

DELIGHT in who Jesus is: John 11:1-57 The Passion Translation. “Where did you bury him? Then tears streamed down Jesus’ face.” (John 11:34-35)

DELIGHT in declaring the Good News message: “Lord, I believe you are the Son of God who has come into the world for us.” (John 11:27)

DELIGHT in Jesus’ empathy, trustworthiness and power in all the challenges of your life!
He saw death as “another opportunity to see who I am, so you will learn to trust in Me.” (John 11:15) Jesus’ resurrection of his beloved friend Lazarus is a glorious turning point for these witnesses – and for us all because Jesus said, “anyone who clings to Me in faith, even though he dies, will live forever.” (John 11:25)

REFLECT on the proportion of your fellow Australians who do not yet have a personal relationship with God.

Jesus said “If you believe you will see God unveil His power…” (John 11:40)

ASK YOURSELF:

  • Do you believe in Christ’s unveiled power available to us in Australia in this generation?
  • Do you believe Jesus’ power can be unveiled through you?

DELIGHT in the powerful truth that Your Father has positioned Australia as His messenger to the world! God has commissioned us to be messengers of reconciliation. Read 2 Corinthians 5:11-21.

RESEARCH & DISCERN: Australia’s message. Seek God’s revelation of your nation’s message to the world. Explore prophetic words about your nation www.australianpropheticcouncil.com.au. Share key prophetic words with us.

DESTINY BLESSING: Jesus has made us priests in His kingdom (1 Peter 2:5,9; Revelation 1:5-6). We are equipped to overflow God’s blessing to others (Deuteronomy 10:8; Numbers 6:22-27).

PRAYER:

  • DELIGHT in your Father and declare your life message.
    Father, like Jesus we gaze into heaven and pour upon You our thanksgiving. Almighty, Omnipotent and gracious God we adore You! In You we live and move and have our being. We are Your offspring, Father.
  • Invite Jesus into your friends’ DESTINY.
    Jesus, my Lord and Saviour, I continue to pray for my listed friends who have not received You and are facing eternal death. I also have on my heart many other family members, friends and colleagues. Lord, have mercy on their souls! Usher them into new life in You and to their DESTINY in the family of God. I pray in Jesus’ name, Amen.
  • Invite Jesus to transform the DESTINY of your region.
    Father, the DESTINY of our nation hangs in the balance. I hear the cries of grief from those who will hesitate and miss their window of opportunity to respond to you as the Beloved. (Song of Songs 5:6) Send your Spirit to convict us of our need for repentance and sustained fervent intimacy with You. Raise and equip us as your Church to carry the gospel truth that Jesus has died – so that the people of our nation do not need to perish! All are invited to the marriage feast of the Lamb but so few enter! We cry out Lord for our land, environment, laws, our systems, our mindsets, our will to be resurrected to life in Jesus. (2 Chronicles 7:14). May Australia be given audience to speak words of life to the nations – words that are triumphant over death. (Acts 17:28)!

    From Judy McCabe, Toowoomba, Queensland
    Thank-you for the “40 Days of Delight” daily devotional. From the early hours 14-03-15
    My prayer, scripture reading, for the people of this city, this nation, this world is appreciation of the Mystery ( the Gentiles should be fellow heirs).
    “ For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
    from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that He would grant you,
    according to the riches of His glory,
    to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man,
    that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you,
    being rooted and grounded in love,
    may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and height-
    to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge;
    that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
    Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think,
    according to the power that works in us,
    to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.”
    Ephesians 3:14-21

    God’s richest blessings to you Sue, your family and to the Body of Christ,
    Your spiritual sister in Christ,
    Judy McCabe, Toowoomba, Queensland
