Verse of the Day
Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. Ephesians 1:4 (NLT)
Dearest loving Father in heaven, today I choose to obey You. I let go of trying to reason it all out in my mind and choose to trust You. Thank You for Your faithfulness and for rewarding my obedience. Thank You for Your Word that builds faith in my heart and refreshes my soul. I choose to put action behind my faith today. I choose to give life to my faith so that You can accomplish Your will in me. Thank You for helping me and holding me in Your victorious right hand. I choose to trust You even when things don’t make sense, even when things seem beyond my control. I release my cares to You knowing that You work all things together for my good. Thank You for thinking good thoughts about me. Help me to focus on Your higher thoughts today. Empower me to obey Your Word so that I can live as an overcomer in every area of life.
Lord, thank You for the gift of peace which is strength. Today, I choose to release any strife or contention in my heart. I ask You to fill me with Your peace so that I can be an instrument of peace everywhere I go. Father, You know how often I am weary and heavy burdened. You know I need rest. You promised if I came to You that You would give me the rest I need. I come Lord Jesus, I come to You with all my burdens. Please give me rest to my soul. I thank You for the sacrifice of Your Son, my savior, Jesus Christ. I thank You that You know who I am, You know my weaknesses and still love me. I especially thank You for promising to take care of my every need with Your mercy and grace. Thank You for the gift of hope. I receive it by faith today. Thank You for lifting me up into heavenly places with You.
Father, I come now to worship You. Help me sense Your presence. Draw me close to You I pray. Forgive my weakness, fill me with strength, and continually remind me of Your great mercy. Though I am not worthy, I am love, and therefore, I am saved. Thank you for adopting me as your child! Thank you for the incredible privilege of calling you “Father”! Help me, gracious God, to live as a member of your family. May I faithfully obey your will, seeking always to honor you as my Father. May I embrace my sisters and brothers in your family, caring for them and sharing life with them. Help our family to be slow to judge others and quick to judge ourselves. Help us to produce the fruits of the spirit that will draw people to You and not away. Help us to lead others by Your love and do this as a humble servant of our Lord and Savior. In the marvelous name of our savior and Lord Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen
