As we are poised now on the brink of a new week, I thank you, Lord, for what you have in store for us. You, the Star Breather, the Earth Spinner, the Dawn Bringer, the History Ender, are at work in great power, in deep wisdom and in rich love to bring what is best within a broken world.
I praise you now for what you have planned for my life today, knowing that you will guide, direct and protect. I think of all the times in the past when you have protected me in driving, times when I should have had an accident, yet you alerted me or kept me from changing lanes or had others avoid me.
Thank you for keeping us safe recently, when our brakes gave out—twice—and you prevented us from having an accident each time. I praise you for what you are doing every day to protect us, both from our own foolishness and from others’ errors.
Praise be to you, Lord, for your great faithfulness and love, your gracious, undeserved protection and help. “I love you, O Lord, my strength. The Lord is my rock, my fortress, my deliverer.” (Psalm 18:1) May you be glorified and honored in my life, today, Lord Jesus, for you certainly deserve it!
