“The Lord lifts up the humble; He casts the wicked down to the ground. Sing to the Lord with thanksgiving; sing praises on the harp to our God,” (Psalm 147:6-7)
Do not be proud or boastful. You are whom the Lord made you to be. Come as you are and know that He will transform you and make of you what He has always intended. The proud and wicked will be cast down, but the humble will be lifted up to be with Him always. Know that in the Lord is true life found. In Him alone is there hope and meaning. Come, rejoice and be glad.
Lord, lift up my spirit to walk with You now and always. Guide me according to Your goodness to see that in You is the hope for all people. Lead me away from the arrogance of the proud that I may walk humbly with You at all times. Teach me the everlasting way of life that I may live according to Your purposes. Help me learn to praise and always to give thanks for Your goodness and mercy.
Lord Jesus, You have come to lead the way into everlasting life. Guide me according to Your goodness that I would walk in Your footsteps. Help me now and always to see that in You is the hope for every person. You have given the words of everlasting life. Lead me through the truth You have revealed to learn how to live the godly life You offer in grace. May I now and always praise You for Your goodness and mercy. Amen.
