“You made the earth by Your power; You founded the world by Your wisdom and stretched out the heavens by Your understanding.
When You thunder, the waters in the heavens roar; You make clouds rise from the ends of the earth. You send lightning with the rain and bring out the wind from Your storehouses.”
“You are the Maker of all things, including the people of Your inheritance – the Lord Almighty is Your name.”
Father, You are the One. The Only. You are forever my Creator and Savior. And no one and no thing can stand against You. No power, ruler, or authority. Nothing in heaven, on the earth or below it. What You purpose will come to pass.
“The Lord reigns!” “Let the nations tremble.” Father, I believe one day soon, You will reign on earth. Nothing will be able to stand against You. And the nations will tremble.
Your people looked for You to deliver them out of the hand of Babylon. And You delivered. But You had an even greater deliverance in mind. “For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people.”
When You walked this earth and sacrificed Yourself on the cross, that bought salvation and offered it to all. And now, the world waits for “the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Christ Jesus.”
Father, You purified me with Your blood. You gave me Your Word to teach me how to live. Help me live as Yours. Amen
