VERSE OF THE DAY
He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
Will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress,
My God, in whom I trust!”
Reference – THE BOOK OF PSALMS : Chapter 91 Verses 1,2 ( NASB )
Abba Father, as we come into your presence today, we give you all praise, glory, honor and majesty. Abba ,today we are celebrating the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ ; we praise you for all the great things you have done for us. Abba, thank you for your love. Blessed be the name of the Lord. Worthy is the lamb that was slain. We give you praise and glory. Hallelujah. Abba Father, thank you for all your love, protection and providence in our lives. Lord ,this world teaches us to be lovers of self and we are often mislead to believe that a fulfilling life is the result of our own abilities . Abba ,help us understand that if the Lord doesn’t build the house, then the workers labour in vain. Lord, teach us through your Holy Spirit that ,when we seek your kingdom and righteousness, the meaning and purpose of every thing that we undertake has an eternal perspective ; our work is for the King , for the glory of His Name . Lord, help us to understand that as humans we are not perfect and it’s okay to feel imperfect or sad. Father, may we never forget that we are inscribed on the palm of your hands . Abba, help us to recognize that fulfillment in life comes when we receive from the One who is perfect, from you who is the source of every good thing. Abba, we are the safest, happiest , most joyful and peaceful under the shadow of your wings. Abba, you are our shelter and refuge . The Lord is my Shepherd and i shall not want . May we put our trust only in you Lord. Abba, help us to understand that we are sinful by nature and our flesh is weak, but the spirit is willing and there is salvation in the Name of Jesus. Help us to understand that your grace is sufficient for us, that your power is made perfect in our weakness. Abba, help us to follow your ways always, for they are just and righteous. Lord, be our ever present help in trouble, our fortress against all the weapons of the enemy . Dear Father , please forgive us our pride and arrogance, our indifference and apathy, our negligence and ungrateful nature. Help us understand that the best decision we could ever make is to trust in your love, care and manifold wisdom. Abba ,cover us with your wings and protect us from the evil one. Holy Spirit, please guide us . Bless us lord and help us. We give you all praise and glory, now and forever . In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
