I missed posting yesterday as I was in the hospital for a minor but debilitating operation. Home now n getting better.
“Those who trust in the LORD are like Mount Zion, which cannot be shaken but endures forever” (Ps. 125:1).
I praise you, LORD, Yahweh, the great I AM, that you make us unshakable as we rest in the truth of who you are. You are the unchangeable One, the Almighty One, the Undefeated One, the Eternal One, the All-seeing One, the Righteous One, the Holy One, the Loving One.
You are ever at work, you are aware of all, you are constantly, consistently, compassionately arranging the events that come into my life. You are able to take our mistakes and sins and somehow use them for good: chastening, correcting, counseling, changing us with them.
Praise you for the certainty of your work in my life today, for the certainty of your protection, presence and provision in each step, each moment, each interaction. I praise you for your going before me and preparing each event and relationship. I praise you, LORD, for you are worthy of trust.
“As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the LORD surrounds his people both now and forevermore” (Ps. 125:2).
You, Heavenly Father, are far more stable than any mountain—you are always there, surrounding us with your love, grace and protection. Nothing can move you, remove you or shake you; you are sure, unchangeable, solid, reliable, and trustable. Your faithfulness has no end, your wisdom no bottom, your goodness no top, your power no measure.
You are worthy of praise for your great character: full-orbed, multifaceted, sparkling in purity, shining in goodness, balanced in integrity, perfect in fullness. You are faithful in your love, in your goodness, in your protection, in your wisdom, in your presence, in your power. We can rest in you, on you, by you, with you. To you belongs all praise and honor.
Prayer: “Today help me to exalt you in my responses, glorify you in my motives, lift up your name in my speech, please you in my actions. Help me to remember that no matter what my circumstances, your character is worthy of worship. Amen.”
