“For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name” (Ephesians 3:14-15)

The source of our being is God.  Such a simple thought, which is so profound, is revealed.  We often act as though we are our own beings when we are really creatures created by the One who created all things.  We all ought to bend the knee and humble ourselves before the One through whom all things exist.  Come then and live into the hope and promise He alone can and does give.

Lord, I act as though I am my own person.  Yes, You have given me the ability to think this way, but this cannot be all that I am.   Lead me in the right direction so that I would look to You for all things.  In You alone is the source of life.  In You alone is all meaning.  Guide me, Lord, in the right way of thinking and being.  Guide me to live life as You have created it to be lived.

Lord Jesus, You have come so that we may have life and have it abundantly.  Guide me in the way You have established by grace in order that I may walk humbly with You and live into the life that You have created for me to live.  In the way You alone know I need to walk, help me follow You so that I would continue as the Father’s new creation, becoming what You have planned from the beginning.  Amen.
