Good morning, Father!
Thank you for getting me through that awful sickness last night, and for encouraging me to get up and shower early on this morning, washing away all those germs and starting fresh…! Lord, I give you this day, my will, my heart, my hands, my mind. Let me create for YOU today, my Lord! Guide me to the things you would have me to do, even those things that stabilize me and pace me. Let me not be distracted by things that I might think I need to do, that are not part of your agenda. Let me not be moved by mine own eyes, but by your hand, Oh Lord!
1 Peter 5:6-10 ERV
So be humble under God’s powerful hand. Then he will lift you up when the right time comes.
Give all your worries to him, because he cares for you.
Control yourselves and be careful! The devil is your enemy, and he goes around like a roaring lion looking for someone to attack and eat.
Refuse to follow the devil. Stand strong in your faith. You know that your brothers and sisters all over the world are having the same sufferings that you have.
Yes, you will suffer for a short time. But after that, God will make everything right. He will make you strong. He will support you and keep you from falling. He is the God who gives all grace. He chose you to share in his glory in Christ. That glory will continue forever.
All power is his forever. Amen.
Thank you, Lord, I need these words this morning! I look forward to growing in strength, even today. Help me to stay humble and keep my ears and eyes focused on you. Let my heart sing with your praises, and my mind rejoice because you have chosen me, Oh Lord! 😀
