The song writer said, Lord prepare me to be a sanctuary; pure and holy, tried and true. With thanksgiving I’ll be a living sanctuary for You. Today I approach Your Throne of Grace, asking that I am prepared for the day and times ahead. In the Old Testament, the Tabernacle was built as a Dwelling Place for You. My prayer is that, in the same way, my body is prepared to be a place where You may dwell; may You find it a place where You can and will rest. I lay myself before You in the physical and the spiritual, for the process to take place. Place it within my mind, heart and spirit the true knowledge of You, the God I serve. May I perfectly realise and perceive the full power of the resurrection of Your Son Jesus Christ, Yeshua HaMashiach. Your Word tells me that if You are lifted up from this earth You will draw all man to You. Therefore, I lift You up, I worship, glorify and honour You. I place You above all things. I pray that of all the verdicts I may face, Yours will be the only one that matters. Wherever I fail, may Your Word pull me up as I remember that ALL things are possible via You and what a Mighty God I serve! You will be my first port of call in the morning; the last thing at night. As You reveal things to me, may it be possible for me to understand. As You reveal things to me, may I not be afraid. As You reveal things to me, may I obey. El Elyon, I trust in You.
You will bring them in and plant them on the mountain of your inheritance— the place, Lord, you made for your dwelling, the sanctuary, Lord, your hands established.Exodus 15:17 (NIV)
“Then have them make a sanctuary for me, and I will dwell among them.Exodus 25:8
Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.Proverbs 4:23 (NIV)
Do not fear (anything), for I am with you; Do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, be assured I will help you; I will certainly take hold of you with My righteous right hand (a hand of justice, of power, of victory, of salvation).’Isaiah 41:10 (AMP)
And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself.”John 12:32 (NIV)
And (I pray) that the eyes of your heart (the very centre and core of your being) may be enlightened (flooded with light by the Holy Spirit), so that you will know and cherish the hope (the divine guarantee, the confident expectation) to which He has called you, the riches of His glorious inheritance in the saints (God’s people),Ephesians 1:18 (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
