...and the truth shall set me free
I am of worth...
No matter what the lies my generation is made to believe.
I am of value...
Not because of my accomplishments, my beauty or education
I am fulfilled
Completely in Jesus Christ.
All I want, all I desire, who I was made to be is found at the foot of the cross.
The Lord, maker of the universe, eni to te sanma bi eni saw it fit to make me. He is not a maker of worthless things, he desired me that’s why he made me. “The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name” (Isaiah 49 v 1). You were the one who called my name and “…knit me together in my mother’s womb” (Psalm 139 v 13). It was of your doing, you weren’t bored or looking for a pet project. You desired me into existence.
No matter my surroundings or how the world makes me feel, help me to remember “…for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works…” (Psalm 139 v 14) nothing can change that or take that away. I am precious to you father; so precious that you have me “…carved in the palms of your hands and my walls are continually before thee” (Isaiah 49 v 13). This world will fade away and everything it holds. No matter how unstable life is, you are “…my rock and my salvation; my defense; I shall not be greatly moved” (psalm 62 v2).
Now, I seek you Lord and the intentions you have for my life. Let my will be overshadowed by yours. Teach me, minister to me and make me sensitive to the beckoning of the Holy Spirit. Be the “…lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path” (psalm 119 v105). Show me what you desire of me and let me not be lost from you. Help me love the Lord [my] God with all [my] heart, and with all [my] soul, and with all [my] mind (Matthew 22 v37).
“Now unto him that is able to keep [me] from falling, and to present [me] faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy…” (Jude 1 v 24) I commit my life.
