Almighty God, I come before You, the Creator and Sustainer of all people and things; known and unknown; seen and unseen. I ask You for forgiveness of all my sins and look forward to all I am to come across this week. I am aware that because You stand outside of time known to man and have seen and know what test and trials I will come across. Therefore, my trust is in You.
Today, I thank You that it is because of Your Son, Jesus Christ, I am able to break every chain. I am no longer bound by things outside of You. Depression is not my portion. Doubt is not my portion. Pain is not my portion. Sickness is not my portion. Struggle with sin, is not my portion. I hand it all over to You. If I learn to lean on You, all chains will be broken. No matter where I am and no matter my standing or level in life, I know that within Your Kingdom, everyone is equal. The small will be made great and the great will become small: the first will be last and the last will be first. Gone are any inferiority complexes or any reasons that may make me feel puffed up. Neither leave nor forsake me and keep me focused on You.
17 But that was not enough for you (a small thing in your eyes), God. You have also made promises about my future family (spoken about your servant’s house in the distant future). Lord God, you have treated me like a very important (great; exalted) person.1 Chronicles 17:17 (EXP)
But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look at his appearance or at the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”1 Samuel 16:7 (AMP)
22 Jesus replied, “Have faith in God (constantly). 23 I assure you and most solemnly say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be lifted up and thrown into the sea!’ and does not doubt in his heart (in God’s unlimited power), but believes that what he says is going to take place, it will be done for him (in accordance with God’s will). 24 For this reason I am telling you, whatever things you ask for in prayer (in accordance with God’s will), believe (with confident trust) that you have received them, and they will be given to you.Mark 11:22-24 (AMP)
But many who are first will be last, and many who are last will be first.Matthew 19:30 (NIV)
Indeed there are those who are last who will be first, and first who will be last.”Luke 13:30 (NIV)
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
