Good morning Father. Some of us are just beginning another Satisfying Saturday morning. Fow some, it is a day of rest, for others another day of work, and yet others worked last night and will spend the day sleeping. Whatever the case, we thank you for see us through the night. For those of us who are just waking up, we greet You with a hearty, “Good Morning Father! You alone are the Holy One, and You alone are the Lord, You alone are the Most High, Jesus Christ, with the Holy Spirit, in the Glory of God the Father! We commend our spirits in Your Hands because You have redeemed us, O Lord, God of Truth.
We have I taken refuge under Your wing of protection, and we will never be ashamed of that. In Your righteousness, You have delivered us and set us free from all guilt and shame and brought us to sit under the shadow of Your love and grace. You remain our strong rock, a castle to keep us safe; You are our crag and our stronghold. You continually delivery us from the hand of the wicked, and from the clutches of the evildoer and the oppressor. You remain our hope and our confidence ever since we witnessed Your wisdom. We have been sustained by You ever since we came to You; Your have been our strength and our praise will always of of You. I have become a portent to many, but in our eyes You are our refuge and our strength. Today, tomorrow and everyday for the rest of our lives our mouths will be full of Your praise and Your glory all the day long. We are confident that You will never cast us off or forsake us if our strength fails. We are able to look to You for wisdom, peace and joy.
You have called out to us in our darkness to be free, so because of Your grace and power, we are able to walk worthy of your love and bask in the light of your wisdom and peace! We no longer hunger or thirst for anything but Your presence, and the scorching heat of the sun does no longer hinders our journey, because Your Spirit guide us and leads us to “springs of water.” So as we start our day, we thank You for everything that it holds.
We commit to honor You and the calling and trust You have in us. As we go about out tasks today, please continue to guide and direct our steps. Help us to impact those around us in positive way, and in the process, change us! Encourage us and strengthen us so we can reflect Your Kingdom properly. Open the eyes of our understanding so we cam know You, to know Your will and Your ways.
And we thank You so much for Your Word which changes us and penetrates our heart by the power of Your Holy Spirit. We joyfully yield to Your will and ways. Order our steps today, and regardless of our situation or circumstances we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Amen! ~Nickolas Hiemstra
