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.
The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it,
The world and all who dwell in it.
For He founded it upon the seas
And established it upon the waters. (Psalm 24:1-2)
God sits enthroned above the circle of the earth,
And its inhabitants are like grasshoppers.
He stretches out the heavens like a curtain
And spreads them out like a tent to dwell in.
He reduces rulers to nothing
And makes the judges of this world meaningless. (Isaiah 40:22-23)
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
I will give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His lovingkindness endures forever. (Psalm 118:1)
Many came to hear Jesus and to be healed of their diseases, and those who were tormented by evil spirits were healed. (Luke 6:18)
I LISTEN TO YOUR WORDS OF TRUTH
Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but through faith in Christ Jesus, I have believed in Christ Jesus, that I may be justified through faith in Christ and not by the works of the law; for by the works of the law, no flesh will be justified. (Galatians 2:16)
MY RESPONSE TO YOU, LORD
I will not lay up for myself treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal. But I will lay up for myself treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where my treasure is, there my heart will be also. (Matthew 6:19-21; Luke 12:34)
He who is generous will be blessed, for he shares his food with the poor. (Proverbs 22:9)
Lord, I thank You for Your goodness and lovingkindness and for the authority of Jesus Christ Your Son. I thank You that I have been made acceptable in Your sight through faith in Christ, and I ask that I would lay up lasting treasure in heaven by being generous to others.
