God, I belong in Your presence, help me stay focus on the things above. God keep breaking my heart and make it everything You are about.
“Let the morning bring me word of Your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to You I lift up my soul. Rescue me from my enemies, O Lord, for I hide myself in you. Teach me to do Your will, for You are my God; may your good spirit lead me on level ground. For Your name’s sake, O’ Lord, preserve my life; in your righteousness, bring me out of trouble. In your unfailing love, silence my enemies; destroy all my foes, for I am Your servant” (Psalms 143:8-12).
Great Is your faithfulness my loving Father. Pour showers of mercy and grace on every inch of the life you gave me. God I am praising you, for the wonderful people you have place in my life. God my heart ache for you. God I am waiting here for You, in this place where I draw near. God, I am waiting, for Your name and renown are the only things I utter.
God I am praying that “your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insights, so that [I] may be able to discern what is best, and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ – to the glory and Praise of God” (Philippians 1:9-11).
“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. For he choose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will – to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves. In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that he lavished on us with wisdom and understanding. And he made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ, to be put into effect when the times will have reached their fulfillment – to bring all things in heaven and on earth together under one head, even Christ.
In him we were also chosen , having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity to the purpose of his will, in order that we, who were the first to hope in Christ, might be for the praise of his glory. And you also were included in Christ when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation. Having believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession – the praise of His glory” (Ephesians 1:3-14).
God let your light shine in my heart to give me the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ (2 Corinthians 4:6) . God I have nothing but to offer my heart to You, completely for the glory of Your great name. God I am standing with arms high and heart abandon for your Son Jesus Christ, who gave me life. Forever my God, I will keep walking in the ways of Your laws, for You alone are what I live for. Making Your name known in places long devastated, is my heart desire. God, I will forever keep telling Your Good News to the poor. God you send me to “bind up the broken hearted, to proclaim freedom to the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God. In Your great compassion my God, you have sent me to “comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of the spirit of despair”. God my soul and everything of the life you gave delight greatly in You, my soul rejoices in You. (Isaiah 61). Amazing passage, so blessed for it and the entire bible.
“I will tell of the kindness of the Lord, the deeds for which he is to be praised” (Isaiah 63:7). Our God is, indeed a consuming fire, “a burning holy flame”, “with glory and freedom”. God help us keep our eyes on You. “A mighty fortress is our God”, a sacred refuge is your great name (Christy Nockels, A Mighty Fortress), (The Bible, Hebrews 12:29).
My soul Lord, belongs to you, for the one who gave me life, I am laying my life as a living sacrifice, for the glory of Your great name.
