Dear Lord, When I truly reflect on Who You are, my Lord and my God, and that You left Your heavenly throne of splendour and came to earth to suffer a life of humiliation and death - and all for love of me, how can it be? Thank You, my Father, for sending Jesus to be my Saviour. Thank You, Jesus, for dying for my sin and for the gift of eternal life. Thank You, Lord Jesus, my Saviour and Lord, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, Your plan of redemption is staggering, and I worship and praise You for Your goodness and grace to the children of men. Thank You that You sent the Lord Jesus to be born into the human race so that by faith in Him, we may be transferred from the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of Your dear Son. Thank You for revealing Your plans and purposes through the holy Scriptures, and for purposing that the eternal Son should be born as the perfect Man - to die and rise again for my sake. As I watch for the any-day return of Jesus, keep me focussed on You, so that I may live and work to Your praise and glory. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that Jesus is the Living Water in Whom are the words of eternal life and Who satisfies the thirsty. Thank You that I am part of His Bride. I long for that day when Christ returns to take us to be with Himself into heaven. I pray that the many souls who are lost in sin and facing a lost eternity without God and without hope, would come and drink of the living water and be saved through faith in Him. Maranatha! Come, Lord Jesus! In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the truth of Your unchanging and unchangeable Word. May I study to show myself approved unto God, and not be swayed by any wind of doctrine that covertly takes away or adds to Your Word of truth. Guide me into all truth, I pray, through the power of Your indwelling Holy Spirit. Enable me to share the truth in love and to challenge those that have deviated from Your Word for another gospel. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, as I reflect on Psalm 138 where You say, "I have exulted My Word above My Name," I start to understand how important these two warnings in Revelation 22 are. May I personally never add to or take away from Your Word and give me discernment to reject any teaching or organisation that adds to or takes away from the Bible. Thank You for Your Word that is so precious to You and to me. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
Dear Lord Jesus, as I anticipate Your soon return, I glorify Your name for Your precious reassurances that Your Word is faithful and true and that You have promised to return one day soon to take us to live with Yourself forever, where all tears will be wiped away and all our sadness will be turned into joy. Praise Your name for this blessed assurance, AMEN.
