My Monday Prayer: Important!
-Roy Lessin and Marina Bromley, Meeting in the Meadow
“You were made for another world” -C.S. Lewis
You are important-
God knows you and He wants you to know Him.
Your heart is a home where He wants to dwell.
You were formed by God as His unique creation.
You are not a surprise or an accident. Your arrival into this world was not an act of fate. God brought you here for His glory, with His plan, and to fulfill His purpose for your life.
Who you are in Christ is
When you received God’s Son you entered into God’s greatest joy. You are now God’s child, heir of the King, adopted and chosen by Him. You are God’s somebody. You are salt. Light. Christ’s ambassador. A servant in His kingdom. You are a witness and a testimony. You are a blessing and will be blessed. So many lives are enriched because you are Christ's and Christ is yours.
Christ’s life in you is
Your hands extend His blessing, your heart gives forth His love, your words speak comfort and hope.
Your countenance draws others to God’s light.
You bring bread and carry living water to those who hunger and thirst. When
you are reduced it brings increase. Bending low, lifts you up. You pray and God listens. You refresh others and you are refreshed. You are His vessel, pouring forth the riches of His grace through Christ who lives in you.
Having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved (Ephesians 1:5,6 NKJV).
My Monday Prayer
Thank You, Lord, for choosing me long before I knew You. Thank You for creating me with a purpose and equipping me as You see fit. Be at work in me today, and continue to let me see Your hands and feet at work around me as I pursue Your will. May You be glorified in this humble life I live on earth. I look forward to spending eternity in Your presence. In Jesus’ name, amen.
