Psalm 18:50 “He gives his king great victories;”
[You, Lord, give us opportunity to participate in your victories each day, in every temptation, every stress, every desire to grumble–each an opportunity to take up your grace and glorify you with the sacrifice of thanksgiving.
And You help us in each situation, making it possible to deny self and obey Truth, to let go of what is temporary, to hold on to what is eternal and to rise above the frustrations, disappointments and problems of life.
And in so doing you help us fulfill the purpose of our lives: honoring you, revealing you to those around us by our trusting you in every circumstance. You are sufficient, you are powerful and you are loving, fully worthy of our complete obedience.
Without you we are lost in a meaningless random universe. With you there is belonging, worth and meaningful, purposeful work.
With you there is all we need, all we desire, all we could want. Thank you, Lord God, for your counter-conditional, ever flowing agape love. Help us to live in the light of these truths, to revel i n your love, to rejoice in your goodness, to retrain our thinking to match yours. Amen,
