Father God, thank you that you are sovereign over all. We thank you that you love us so much and lavish us with your blessings. We pray that we continually seek your will, for we know the true blessings on this earth is a relationship with you. Please forgive us when we seek the created instead of the reator. For you alone are all we need and desire.
Your Word tells us “But blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in him. He will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.” (Jer. 17:7-8) Lord, we pray that our relationship will and always be what is described here. That no matter what trial or situation we face, our faith and trust is so rooted in you that even in the droughts of life we are green and bearing fruit. Help us to always remember that the blessings bestowed upon us are always meant to glorify You alone and not for own comforts.
Lord, thank you that you meet all our needs according to the riches of your glory in Christ Jesus. (Phil 4:19) Thank you for blessing us and keeping us close to you, that Your face shines on us and that you are gracious to us. (Num. 6:24-25) Thank you that you love us so much that you tell us no when our request don’t align with Your sovereign will. Most of all, thank you for the blessing of Jesus that restores us back to you, that we are not left in our filth but are now seen as holy, righteous children, forever redeemed. We love you so much! In Jesus name, Amen.
