“I shall pay my vows to the Lord, oh may it be in the presence of all His people, in the courts of the Lord’s house, in the midst of you, O Jerusalem. Praise the Lord!” (Psalm 116:18-19)
We are each called to live the life that we have been given. The ultimate purpose is to live in the love relationship that the Lord established by grace. Many are called, but few are they who enter into the relationship. Come into the life to which You have been called and learn to praise the Lord in every circumstance. He alone is worthy of all praise and honor. To Him alone be the glory.
Lord, You know the frailty of my heart. I am one who says one thing and does another. Help me, O Lord, to overcome the difficulties of this world that in all circumstances I would praise You. Cause me to dwell in Your peace no matter the warfare around me. Bring me up to be with You that in this day and every day I may be thankful for all Your benefits, praising You above all things.
Lord Jesus, You knew and know that we need saving. You have paved the way that as many as come in faith and believe, You grant the power to become children of God. Lead me, O Lord, in the way of truth that I would follow You and come into Your presence eternally. Lift my thinking and acting up that I would learn to behave as a child of the Father in all things. Amen.
