Abba Father, I come before You giving all glory, honour and praise. As always I offer myself to You and ask to be forgiven of all sins of word, thought or deed; seen or unseen. I thank You for what You have done, are doing and intend to do. Strengthen me for whatever this day has to offer and I, again, give thanks for Your attribute of being an Ever-Present God: You’ll neither leave nor forsake me.
Today, I come before You with my eyes and heart fixed on You. I come before You with a sacrifice of praise. I will praise You with my whole being; spiritually, mentally and physically. There is so much to be thankful for, so I have no alternative but to offer myself up. As I do so, I recognise the times I may refrain from praising You adequately; and those are the occasions when I need to push through even more. However, I recognise those times in the past and I am realistic in knowing there will be times like that in the future. Therefore, I shall lift up my hands and glorify You, because of who You are and knowing You will never change. My circumstances, mind, mood, and so much more, can change, but You never will. No matter what life has to throw at me, You are there to soften the blow or catch me as I fall. Your Word tells me to be anxious for nothing. Therefore, if You have said it I will believe it. No matter what is going on, because of Your power, might and love for me, I need not fear. My hope must not be based on anything less than Your Son Jesus Christ, and His Righteousness. Help me to continually praise You in spirit and in truth.
And now shall my head be lifted up above my enemies round about me; in His tent I will offer sacrifices and shouting of joy; I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the Lord.Psalm 27:5 (KJV)
With a freewill offering I will sacrifice to You; I will give thanks and praise Your name, O Lord, for it is good.Psalm 54:6 (KJV)
[There shall be heard again] the voice of joy and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride, the voices of those who sing as they bring sacrifices of thanksgiving into the house of the Lord, Give praise and thanks to the Lord of hosts, for the Lord is good; for His mercy and kindness and steadfast love endure forever! For I will cause the captivity of the land to be reversed and return to be as it was at first, says the Lord.Jeremiah 33:11 (AMPC)
Through Him, therefore, let us constantly and at all times offer up to God a sacrifice of praise, which is the fruit of lips that thankfully acknowledge and confess and glorify His name.Hebrews 13:15 (KJV)
Meditate on These Things
8 Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy —meditate on these things.
9 The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you.Philippians 4:8-9 (NKJV)
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
