My heavenly Father, your gifts to your children are endless. You are abundant in mercy to each of us because of your abiding love. Your patience with us is beyond understanding.
We did not earn your love and mercy. It came about by Jesus, who loved us. He was willing to give his life as a ransom for us. We didn’t deserve it, but Jesus gave it anyway.
As children of God, we are in awe of your wonders. How you hung the stars in place and the way you see us. Yet, in the vastness of the universe, your eye is upon us. What a privilege. You watch over us to keep us safe.
Forgive us for not thanking you for what you do; how you protect, provide, and are persistent in your mercy towards us. Thank You!
Could you help us to prioritize life better? Instead, we seek more—success, money, and health, forgetting that all we have is by your provision.
Would you help me turn my eyes, energy, and time toward things lasting for eternity? Please give me the wisdom to share your grace and love to others that they may know you and, in turn, share what you provide to others (II Timothy 2:2).
Lord, teach us more of your mercy to share.
“Now that you belong to Christ, you are true children of … God’s promise” (Galatians 3:29 NLT).
