I DRAW NEAR TO YOU, GOD
Lord, I give thanks for Your greatness, your goodness, and your love, and I now draw near to enjoy your presence.
Who has directed the Spirit of the Lord,
Or instructed Him as His counselor?
Whom did the Lord consult to enlighten Him,
And who taught Him the path of justice?
Who taught Him knowledge
Or showed Him the way of understanding?
Surely the nations are like a drop in a bucket
And are regarded as dust on the scales;
He weighs the islands as though they were fine dust.
Before Him all the nations are as nothing;
They are regarded by Him as less than nothing and worthless.
To whom, then, will I compare God?
Or what likeness will I compare with Him? (Isaiah 40:13-15, 17-18)
Take a moment to consider God’s awesome majesty and thank Him that He loves you and wants an intimate relationship with you.
THANK YOU FOR WHAT YOU HAVE DONE
You are the Lord, the God of our fathers—the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob. This is your name forever, the name by which you are to be remembered from generation to generation. (Exodus 3:15)
God took Abram outside and said, "Look up at the heavens and count the stars if you are able to count them." Then He said to him, "So shall your descendants be." And Abram believed in the Lord, and He credited it to him as righteousness. (Genesis 15:5-6)
I LISTEN TO YOUR WORDS OF TRUTH
I will both lie down in peace and sleep, for You alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety. (Psalm 4:8)
MY RESPONSE TO YOU, LORD
I will be careful not to forget the Lord my God by failing to observe His commandments, His ordinances and His statutes. (Deuteronomy 8:11)
I will abide in Christ, so that when He appears, I may have confidence and not be ashamed before Him at His coming. (1 John 2:28)
Lord, I thank You that You are the God of Abraham and that You are faithful to the promises that he received and believed. I thank You for making me dwell in safety, and I ask that I would be faithful to You and abide in Christ.
