Abba Father, My Lord and my God, I recognise You for who You are and worship and adore You; not as man but via my spirit by which I am connected to You. Your Word tells me that they who worship You must do so in spirit and in truth. As usual, I place myself before You and ask for forgiveness of all my sins, whether they be of thought, word or deed and ask for Your leading for the day ahead. Today, I focus on predestination. Your Word tells me that who You foreknew You predestinated. I am not reading this prayer by coincidence. I have not reached this point by accident but it is because You knew me before I physically came into being and have called me to Your marvellous light. As David requested in Psalm 17 that You keep him as the apple of Your eye and hide him in the shadow of Your wings I do the same. Your Word also says if I seek to stay, rest, inhabit Your secret place, I will remain in Your shadow. In Your shadow there is protection; fullness of joy; strength; peace; relieving of all anxiety; good health; assurance; and so much more. I take comfort in Your Words that have been provided for me to live sheltered by You. In that same vein, continue to lead me. Assist me as I begin to seek the treasures of darkness and wealth stored in secret places, as mentioned in the Book of Isaiah. Father, I pray that I am able to continually discern Your voice, so I may remain in the path set out for me.
For those whom He foreknew (and loved and chose beforehand), He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son (and ultimately share in His complete sanctification), so that He would be the firstborn (the most beloved and honoured) among many believers.Romans 8:28 (AMP)
And those whom He predestined, He also called; and those whom He called, He also justified (declared free of the guilt of sin); and those whom He justified, He also glorified (raising them to a heavenly dignity).Romans 8:30 (AMP)
but we speak God’s wisdom in a mystery, the wisdom once hidden (from man, but now revealed to us by God, that wisdom) which God predestined before the ages to our glory (to lift us into the glory of His presence).1 Corinthians 2:7 (AMP)
He predestined and lovingly planned for us to be adopted to Himself as (His own) children through Jesus Christ, in accordance with the kind intention and good pleasure of His will—Ephesians 1:5 (AMP)
In Him also we have received an inheritance (a destiny—we were claimed by God as His own), having been predestined (chosen, appointed beforehand) according to the purpose of Him who works everything in agreement with the counsel and design of His will,Ephesians 1:11 (AMP)
To You who is able to keep me from falling and to present me before His glorious presence without fault and with great joy – to You who is the only God, my Saviour, be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Yeshua The Anointed One, my Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen. Jude 1:24-25
