[Written in my personal worship journal a number of years ago]
As I face the unknowns of this coming day, I praise you, Lord Jesus, for what you will lead me through, for what you will allow and disallow. I praise you that I can rest in you, in your wonderful, marvelous, majestic and mighty Character, sparkling in holiness, shining in purity, glowing in love, radiating forgiveness.
You are perfect, wise, absolute, gracious and righteous. You are trustable, loving, firm and good. You are the One and Only to be exalted and worshiped. In you there is no evil, no fault, no wrong, no error. In you there is only goodness, righteousness, purity and holiness.
Therefore, to you belongs praise, to you belongs trust, to you belongs obedience. I bow before you now, surrendering myself and my desires to you in worship, I lay them on the altar of your love, and ask that you will do what you desire with each one. Fulfill what is good, deny what is not.
Guide me in joining you in what you are doing. One way I can do this is by “boasting in my weakness” (2 Cor. 12:9) so that the power of Christ can come upon me. Another way is by offering the sacrifice of thanksgiving in and for whatever comes (Ps. 50:23), keeping up the shield of faith.
I give you glory and honor, Lord, praise and exaltation for what you are doing in all the uncertainty and uncomfortable situations before me, for how you will use them for your glory, for how you will defeat the powers of Satan and carry us on into the glory of your coming return.
Help me to rest in these Truths and in your goodness. I thank you for the continued unsettledness within, flowing from the uncertainties without, for this reminds me further that my trust must be in you, not in outcomes.
May I have “clean hands and a pure heart” throughout this day, and thereby give you glory before all those around me. Praise be to you in all. Amen.
