Lord, as we face the uncertainty of the future, the pressures of the unknown, the fears and worries that arise from our souls, it is wonderful to know that you hold our future in your hand. You deal the cards and make sure we get what is good, what will present us with the most opportunity to give you glory, be it pleasant or tough for us.
You are the Loving King, the Good Shepherd, the Wise Counselor, the Good and Great God of all. I praise you that today, this month and in the coming year you will bring what is best.
Guide me, Lord, give me the direction that I need and I thank you now for how you will answer. To you I can give honor and praise long before I see what I desire coming to pass, for you are fully trustable. Truly my soul finds rest in you alone (Psalm 62:1)
So I give you glory for your faithfulness, honor for your wisdom, exaltation for your power, thanksgiving for your goodness, worship for your righteousness and obedience for your love. May you be lifted up, glorified and exalted today in my life, in my motives, thoughts, words and actions, for you are worthy of all honor.
