January 25 – Day 11: Tabernacle Prayers
The Laver was a bowl of water in the Tabernacle where worshippers had to wash. People had to go through cleansing rituals in order to be ready to appear before God. After Jesus came, he removed any barriers that could prevent us from communicating with God. He returned us to a state where we could communicate with God just as Adam did in the garden. (Genesis 7-8, 15-23)
Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ. He loved us and offered himself as a sacrifice for us, a pleasing aroma to God. (Ephesians 5:2)
THE LAVER – CLEANSING AND PREPARING
Today, seek to surrender yourself as a sacrifice to God. More of God in your life, less of yourself. Think about how you can sacrifice a part of your life that makes you less like God.
Today, prepare your heart to receive a message from God. You have been cleansed by the blood of Christ, and you stand clean before God. Ask God about the purpose he is preparing you for.
think about it:
What is holding you back from being more like God?
What can you sacrifice so that you can get closer to God?
What is God preparing you for?
