This morning I praise you, Lord, for what will come today: the unknown, the unplanned, the interruptions, the painful and the pleasant. You, Lord God, are the good Savior, my Shield, my Strength, my Stronghold (Ps. 18:2b). You are all I need for today. It is a certainty that you will do what is best in your faithfulness, in your goodness, in your wisdom, in your love, in your righteousness, in your grace, in your power.
I praise you for the privilege of being weak—there is so much out of my control (99.9%), while all is within yours. You know what you are doing, you have a plan, you are moving all to a conclusion, bringing it down to a point from which all will expand into eternity, filling the universe with good, righteous, godly and gracious acts, events and beings. No one can stop you, no one can thwart you.
I praise you for your Word and for the wonder of meditating on it, having it trickle down into my being, bring cleansing, insight, transformation and joy. You are the great Wonder yourself, always having more to reveal to us of your Glorious and Gracious character.
I praise you now for what you will show today, do today, provide today. May I give you glory all through today, Lord, by choosing to obey what I know to be true, trusting you, praising you in and for all things, delighting in my weaknesses, rejoicing in your strength, exalting in your righteousness, wisdom and power.
I bow before you in worship, I rise up to walk with you in obedience, in godly fear, desiring to bring you glory before the seen and unseen hosts. Amen.
