Monday Devotional – June 6 2022

Replaced by Rocks

Jesus responded, “Listen to me. If my followers were silenced, the very stones would break forth with praises!”’ Luke 19:40


'With my whole heart, with my whole life, and with my innermost being, I bow in wonder and love before you, the holy God! Yahweh, you are my soul’s celebration. How could I ever forget the miracles of kindness you’ve done for me? You kissed my heart with forgiveness, in spite of all I’ve done. You’ve healed me inside and out from every disease. You’ve rescued me from hell and saved my life. You’ve crowned me with love and mercy. You satisfy my every desire with good things. You’ve supercharged my life so that I soar again like a flying eagle in the sky! You’re a God who makes things right, giving justice to the defenseless.' Psalms 103:1-6


In Luke 19, Jesus enters Jerusalem to a celebratory crowd. With disgust, the Pharisees asked Jesus to stop them from worship. Jesus responded with the popular bible quote “if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out.” This week I want us to reflect on this thought “Are we being replaced by rocks?” Am I giving God my best worship? I am challenged and stirred by these thoughts.

In the post “God in your mundane” I reflected on how God longs to be removed from our cute little box on the shelf to being involved in all aspects of our lives. In the busyness of life, (as my friend would jokingly say,  “when life be life-ing”) is my perspective: “this is worship!”? Do I pause to reflect on God’s goodness and love and then allow that to spring forth a beautiful posture of gratitude? Am I walking through “Complain Commons” instead of Worship Woods? 

The response to these questions are quite personal. Allow the Holy Spirit to stir your heart to repent. Let’s face it, we all can do more. But what is the “more” God requires of you this week?

Song of the Week:

Journal Prompt: 

Am I giving God my best worship?

Are rocks worshipping in my place?


Soul… Bless the Lord! May everything in me, bless God! He has done so much for me. Jesus, help me to never skimp on my praise. Let me see every moment as an opportunity to worship. I pray that my life becomes a consistent worship session with you. Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight. Amen


I will bless the Lord at all times, His praise will continually be in my mouth. Rocks will have no need to cry out in my place.


Have a great week!
