1 Peter 2:9 “But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.” (NIV)
Father – You created me for yourself – to be your special, chosen person. My purpose in life is to declare your praises. May my thoughts, words and actions do this as I remind myself of all you have done for me and then share those insights with others. Guide the meditation of my heart so that the words I speak and the things I do will honor and praise you. I love you, Lord. Use me today to bring you pleasure.
Child – You do please me when you recognize all that I have done for you. You are mine. You are chosen. You are my beloved child. I delight in you. I choose to live in you and walk with you throughout the gift of today.
We will meet many others today who also need to know that I love them. Be ready to share my love and encouragement with them as you cross paths. No encounter is a coincidence. Each is meant to bring me praise by the words of life you speak or the prayers you lift up for others.
Especially encourage and bless your “family” whether they be family by blood or family by association. I will give you eyes to see their needs. Trust Me to supply all that is required for you to bless others in each situation. Remember, you are not alone!
