Good morning Lord! This is the day You have made! We shall rejoice and be glad in it! Awesome and full of majesty and wonder You are. We're exhilarated in Your presence!
We can count on You! So we greet the morning with joy no matter what the day holds. We bow before You and worship You! You created this world and all the planets in the universe. You arranged for everything to work together. You made all things good. You designed man and woman in all our intricacies. You created us to live together in love and harmony and righteousness.
Lord, You put the generational play in motion. Only problem is You left the enemy to roam the earth like a roaring lion seeking whom he might devour [1 Peter 5:7-9]; he is not underfed these days. But then You also sent Your Son Jesus to be our Savior, to give us strength against the enemy. You even gave us Yourself to live in us, yes, to dwell within us; so we have Your power in us. Father, in all the scenes of this life play, You are the director, the screen writer Who gave us the script ~ Your Word. Those who follow the script become the victorious ones. You did not leave us to be the beast’s fodder.
Jesus, You agreed from the time before time began to rescue us, to allow Your blood to be sacrificed for us, to cleanse the original sin from our nature, our souls, our bodies. Once forgiven and shriven of sin by You, we exist in a new paradigm shift where freedom opens heaven’s doors to us. The absolution You provided is more than our humble minds are capable of understanding; yet as we choose to believe and invite You to come live in our hearts, be the Lord of our lives, we are free as the running colt, the newly released calf or frolicking bear cubs ~ interesting the pictures in my mind are all recently birthed creatures.
That’s the joy we have as we are born again into Jesus’ kingdom, freed from our old sin nature, blessed with a fearless new life. Yes, fearless because we now know the truth. God, our Father, loves us more than we can know, loves us as sons and daughters. Thus He protects us and teaches us, and provides joy unspeakable!
Because of this, the enemy’s conniving schemes, his plans for our destruction, are not able to cause us worry, because we know our God is in control. He calls us to do our part ~ and He will reveal to us what that is, and He will support us in any undertaking He calls us to perform. So, my friends, worry not about anything. Trust in our mighty Creator God with all your heart, and receive the peace of the Savior everyday.
