I thank You Lord that You are a God of reconciliation. We are able to reconcile with You in spite of our sins because of the finished work of Christ. Just like the wall around Jerusalem, our relationships get torn down by the enemy. When You see that it’s time to rebuild You give us Your favor for that relationship just like You did with Nehemiah. You have the master plans to our lives Lord. It is when we look to You that we are given the instructions for the next build. I love Your plans for my life. Even the darkest days have ended up with so much grace that I can only be thankful in the end. You didn’t leave me to die in my grief when my brothers died, when my parents disowned me, or when I was faced with bi-lateral cancers, You were there! You are the Builder of my faith, the Lover of my heart, and the Peace in my storms. There is none like You! I worship the very thought of Your name! Thank You Lord that You have given me this day to build my faith, my friendships, my family, and my love for knowing more of You. In Jesus’ name, AMEN.
Because You are always with me, I can look fear in the eye and not be shaken. You strengthen me when I falter. You embolden me when I lack courage. I pray Father that Your righteous right hand always be upon me. Lead me in the way You have for me. You are my helper when I can’t figure our the way. Thank You Father for the precious way You love me. I ask today Lord that You would mold me more and more into the person You made me to be. Let me be less of what the world expects and, more like You every day. Let Your will be done in my life. Equip me Jesus for every battle through the victory that is in Your hand. Remind me that because You have already defeated sin and death, I can stand in that victory when I face trials of every kind. Because of Your selfless act on Golgotha I can come boldly before the mercy seat as a child of the most high God. What can man do to me?! Jesus, I ask that You train me up for the battle to come. In return Lord, let me train up others to be victorious through my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Sin and death have no hold on those that You call free. All glory and honor and worship to You God. In Jesus name, AMEN.
