fotolia_133095022_larger

Lord, everything that I am is because of You. Because of who You are I give You glory. Because of who You are I give You praise. You are my mighty King. You are my Deliverer, my Provider, my Way Maker, and my Shelter in times of storm. Because I have believed You and accepted You, You have given me the right to become a child of God.

I am Your child. Thank You for a place to call home.

I am overwhelmed with joy in You, Lord my God! For You have dressed me with the clothing of salvation and draped me in a robe of righteousness. I am like a bridegroom dressed for his wedding or a bride with her jewels. I am clothed with the righteousness of Jesus.

I am because He is.

Jesus Christ has truly set me free. Lord, I want to stay free, and not get tied up again in slavery to the law. I am free. Show me the way. Lead and guide my every step. Help me to do what is pleasing in Your sight and to recognize Your truth and not try to do things based on my own understanding. I want to be found stepping in the ways of Your dear Son, living a Holy and righteous life according to Your will for me.

For all that I have done wrong in my life, when I did not know the way, and sometimes even after I knew the way, I have come into the knowledge that I am not condemned. Thank You heavenly father for not condemning me. For in sin, I was doomed, but in Christ, I have hope.  For Your Word says that now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus. This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun! Thank You Lord that I have new life and I am somebody in Christ Jesus because of who You are.

Your great love found me where I was, in my state of brokenness and nothingness, and You made me brand new. Now, I am able to live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ. He loved me and offered himself as a sacrifice for me, a pleasing aroma to God.

I am because God is. Thank You for being my just Savior. You are my all and all.

This I pray in Jesus’ Name. Not my will but Your will be done. For Your Glory! Amen.
