– Ephesians 4:2-3 ESV
Precious Heavenly and Holy Father… The only one good… The only one worthy…
At some point in my walk… In my transformation Lord, my eyes have been blinded making it hard for me to see myself as I truly am. As I’ve become less like who I was and more of who I desire to be my sight has become skewed, and I’ve forgotten who has made the visible change in me…
Lord, it’s only because of You! By your grace and through Your power alone has this change occurred in me. And I completely believe that if You removed Your hand from my life I would immediately fall back into my old ways.
Father, please forgive me for thinking higher of myself than I ought. Forgive me for looking down on my fallen brothers and sisters, as well as the unbeliever with judgmental eyes. Never should my thoughts be “how could you”, because next time it could so easily be me.
Oh precious Holy Spirit… Let the love of Christ consume my heart… Let it consume my mind… Ignite a fire that burns so bright and so big that it wouldn’t be consumed by Satan’s tactics.
We are all sinners… Even the saved… Not until we reach the other side will we ever be able to be called anything else. As a Christian I may be saved by grace, but my heart and flesh is still very much filled with the desire to sin. Change my desires, Lord. May they become fueled by Your Spirit. Stir my heart. Convict my soul. Keep my eyes open to who You are and my person humbled to who I am. May I never forget that I am where I am only because You are where You are.
Your Sovereign hand has performed every good deed my hands have touched. There is nothing I have that You need, but Lord I am thankful for the opportunity to take part in Your perfect plan of redemption and restoration for a lost and dying world… And Jesus, that opportunity I have been given is one that You died to give each and every person who so ever will.
One drop of Your blood is more than enough to cleanse the dirtiest sinner’s heart. Not one person is a lost cause… No matter how wicked, no matter how broken, no matter how damaged… You walked that long and painful road so that no one would perish but that all would come to repentance and experience an eternal life in the presence of our Heavenly Father.
May my eyes always seek to see the people of this world through Your eyes and may Your love for them fuel my actions and reactions. And may You always receive every single ounce of glory. For its in Jesus name and because of His sacrifice pray, amen.
