Today, Lord, as I awoke I felt far from you. Thank you for this opportunity to walk by faith, to be reminded that all depends on your unchanging character, not my senses. Although all around me seems barren and brown, the Son of your love is shining into my life.
Praise you, Lord, for your great and gracious presence, whether I sense it or not, whether I feel close to you or not, for in your faithfulness you have promised to never leave or forsake me.
Your plan, your power, your purpose, your persistence are the basis of our salvation, not our feelings or will, actions or obedience. I praise you that you have provided all we need for life and godliness and our part is simply to respond in belief.
To you belongs the glory of having prepared all through the sacrifice of Christ;
to us belongs the privilege of faith and repentance.
To you belongs all honor, glory and worship, for you are the pure, perfect, positive and powerful One who has done all necessary to redeem us;
to us belongs the privilege of being invited into your work.
Praise for your love of partnership, calling us to join you as you move history to a conclusion; help us to join you consistently in your plans great and small, seeing as many as possible enter your Kingdom.
Picture of partnership: God created the seed, we planted it, He brought the flowers!
