Loving Father, thank You for the joy and peace that reigns in our hearts as we rest and abide in the Lord Jesus Christ. Keep me abiding in Your love day by day so that Your joy in my life may be full, for in You is the fullness of joy, for which I praise and thank You.
May I also abide in Your Word, for to know Your Word is to know You. Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light unto my path, and Your Word is also the joy and rejoicing of my inner being.
May I also abide in the truth of Who You are, the God of the universe Who cared for me so deeply that He sent His Son to die so that I might be forgiven. Loving Father, words cannot express the joy of knowing You and abiding in You, for You are life and my light, and You are the joy of My salvation. In Jesus' name,
