“The LORD has sworn and will not change his mind: ‘You are a priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek’” (Ps. 110:4).
You, Lord Jesus, are, by virtue of your nature as God and by virtue of your vow and promise, our Priest forever. You are utterly, entirely, totally faithful, so you will never change your mind.
“… because Jesus lives forever, he has a permanent priesthood. Therefore he is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them.
“Such a high priest meets our need—one who is holy, blameless, pure, set apart from sinners, exalted above the heavens” (Heb. 7:24-26).
You, Lord Jesus, are the One to be exalted, the Most High, the Everlasting One, the Blameless One, Pure in heart, in motive, in thought, in action.
All you do is good, and all you will is good. You are the Pinnacle of greatness, the Paragon of goodness, the Prince of graciousness. All must bow before such purity, such holiness, such perfection. You are worthy of praise, of trust, of obedience both now and forever more!
Prayer: “We give you glory, Lord God, Yahweh and Adonai. We bow before you and pray that you will help us to exalt you in our thoughts, words and actions. Praise be to you in my life both today and forever and ever! Amen.”
