“you surround them with your favor as with a shield.” Psalm 5:12b
[Every day we live in your favor as your
dearly beloved children,
deeply cared for,
and delighted in.
You are enthused to meet with us each morning as we awake– are we as enthused to meet with you?
You are pleased when we come to you in prayer,
you are delighted when we bring our problems to you,
you are glad when we intentionally walk with you through the day.
Your favor surrounds us, covers us, protects us, guides us, provides for us. “As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is flawless. He is a shield for all who take refuge in him” (Ps. 18:30).
You–our Heavenly Father, our Shepherd Jesus, our Faithful Holy Spirit–are fully, truly, absolutely worthy of worship, obedience, exaltation and love.
So, I bow before you this morning, I give myself to you anew. I pledge my obedience to love and praise you for what you will bring today, no matter how it may appear to me. May you be glorified in my life today.]
