Father, we worship and praise You for the greatness, power, splendour, glory, and majesty are Yours alone. May You be greatly honoured for You are Head over all things and Judge of all men. Thank You for all You have done to redeem my life and for bringing me into Your everlasting kingdom. May I never become too familiar with Who it was that hung on the cross for love of me, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
“Thine, O LORD, is
the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is
in the heaven and in the earth is thine
; thine is
the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all.”
Source: Verse of the
day for 1 Chronicles 29:11
Heavenly Father thank You for the opportunity for us to once again examine our hearts during this lovely time of Advent, and the faith in Christ Jesus that we confess.
Keep our hearts aglow with love for Jesus and help to wonder more and more about amazing the grace that You have shown towards sinful man, in sending Your only begotten Son to come to earth, as a tiny human baby - so that He could bear the punishment for the sins of the whole world on His holy shoulders.
It never ceases to amaze us that Christ Jesus should set aside His heavenly glory and be conceived of the Holy Spirit by the virgin Mary, birthed into the human family as the promised Seed of the woman and be worshipped as a tiny baby in a humble stable at Bethlehem, by simple shepherds and singing angels alike.
It was Love incarnate that visited the earth so many years ago and that same love that saved us from our sins and came to dwell within the hearts of all that trust in Jesus as Saviour. Heavenly Father, accept our grateful sacrifice of praise – and may we come to know You more and love You better in the days that lie ahead, in Jesus name we pray,
“O LORD God of Abraham, Isaac, and of Israel, our fathers, keep this for ever in the imagination of the thoughts of the heart of thy people, and prepare their heart unto thee:”
