Adonai // Lord, Master
As we enter into a time of prayer and meditation, take a moment to quiet your soul. The Psalmist invites us to be still and know that He is God. Be still. Take a deep breath. Clear your mind and ask the Lord to protect your thoughts.
Pray the following prayer:
Adonai, Lord of my life, I might not have much but what I do have is a heart that beats for You. Stir up a hunger in my soul to sit in Your presence, and to taste and see that You are indeed good. Come, Holy Spirit.
Adonai is the Hebrew word for lord, or master. It was often used in reference to, rulers, masters, and kings. Scripture teaches us that God is the sole ruler and master of our lives; yet we often live with a divided heart, entertaining multiple masters.
24“No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money."
God is not interested in sharing the affections of your heart. He gave all of His Son so that we could call Him master, and in return He desires all of us.
"Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship"
Our Heavenly Father desires to provide for His children. He does not want us to be parched in the desert but instead eagerly provides refreshment.
Our response to God being our Adonai, or master, is to offer ourselves as a living sacrifice back to God
Allowing something, or someone, to be master or ruler over ourselves requires submission. If we are to honestly live forth from a place of recognizing God as our Adonai then we must take up the posture of total submission, yielding to His ways and His rule.
End your time by praying the following prayer:
May the peace of the Lord Christ go with me: wherever He may send me.
May He guide me through the wilderness: protect me through the storm.
May He bring me home rejoicing at the wonders He has shown.
