Abba Father, I come before Your throne, giving You glory, honour and praise. I ask for forgiveness from sins of thought, word or deed and give You thanks, beforehand, of what I am to receive. You are the God of breakthroughs and I come empty and ready to be filled.
This week, I choose to approach Your Word as a little child. You tell us we are to come as little children; not as though we know everything but as if naive. Only when we do that, are we able to receive new things within Your Word, Every time we turn the pages of the Manual for Life, there are new blessings to receive and new information to be read and consumed in a different way. Keep my heart in a teachable state. Help me to approach You humbly and ready to learn, so that when I pick up Your Word I receive all that I am, and there is, to receive: not with preconceived ideas but as one who is ready to squeeze every bit of blessing, wisdom, knowledge and understanding out of what there is to be obtained. My aim is to inherit Your Kingdom and be a good steward, so help me to seek You and will find it.
But those who wait for the Lord (who expect, look for, and hope in Him) will gain new strength and renew their power; They will lift up their wings (and rise up close to God) like eagles (rising toward the sun); They will run and not become weary, They will walk and not grow tired.Isaiah 40:31 (AMPC)
But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in and acknowledge and cleave to Me to stumble and sin (that is, who entices him or hinders him in right conduct or thought), it would be better (more expedient and profitable or advantageous) for him to have a great millstone fastened around his neck and to be sunk in the depth of the sea.Matthew 18:6 (AMPC)
“Then the King will say to those on His right, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father (you favored of God, appointed to eternal salvation), inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.Matthew 25:34 (AMPC)
Give, and it will be given to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure—pressed down, shaken together, and running over (with no space left for more). For with the standard of measurement you use (when you do good to others), it will be measured to you in return.”Luke 6:38 (AMPC)
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
