I want to increase my “wonder level” when it comes to how I view my God. TobyMac sings of a change of posture in his song “Edge of My Seat.” Lean in to Scripture with me this week. Let’s sit on the edge of our seat in anticipation and appreciation for all the Lord will do and has done.
Explore Psalm 40 with me this week and see where it connects in the New Testament.
On this week’s episode I discuss:

This Week’s Challenge
Study Psalm 40 this week. Interact with God’s Word. Restate these verses in your own words. Add your prayers back to God in what you are writing. Follow the cross reference to Hebrews 10 and see the wondrous act of our Savior as the final sacrifice for our sin. May our posture be that of wondrous expectation, and may God meet us there.
