“Praise the Lord, for the Lord is good; sing praises to His name, for it is lovely. For the Lord has chosen Jacob for Himself, Israel for His own possession.” (Psalm 135:3-4)
Do you see the Lord? Do you see Him in what He has made? Do you know His presence in all you do? Look and see. Open your ears and hear. Know that the Lord has made this creation for His own purpose and you are a part of His purpose. Be guided by the goodness of the Lord and walk in His grace and mercy. Taste and see that the Lord is good. Draw close to Him and He will draw close to you.
Lord, You are around me all the time. Your creation speaks of Your glory. Unstop my ears and open my eyes that I may hear and see. Guide me into the salvation You have prepared in the sight of all people. Keep me on the path of righteousness for Your name’s sake that I may dwell with You now and forever. Through these things, bring me to the place of praise and thanksgiving.
Lord Jesus, You have accomplished salvation for all those who believe. Help me to walk humbly with You this day, doing those things which are pleasing in the Father’s sight. Lift up my countenance that I may now and always live according to Your purposes. May I see and hear this day Your presence, power, and purpose. May I lift up praise and thanksgiving in all I do today. Amen.
