The LORD GOD Declares, “If you do not obey Me…. and if you despise My statute…you shall be defeated by your enemies. Those who hate you shall reign over you… I will break the pride of your power”
Well Beloved Abba, Father, You are an awesome God. You are most Holy. You deserve nothing less than my complete devotion and total obedience. Forgive me for all the times I have been lukewarm toward You. I know I tend to take You for granted. O how wretched I am! How can I not get excited remembering all that You have done for me? How can I fathom the love You have for me? I am an adopted child of You with the right to call You Father and Your love raises me closer to Your heart. But Your love does not give me the liberty to be disrespectful and disobedient to You. I fearfully understand that You will be my adversary If I do not follow your commands with diligence and holiness of my body and heart. Have mercy on me, Abba. You know how weak I am. When my strength fails, for the flesh is weak do not forsake me but set me again upon the path that will win Your favor. Clear I of my manifold guilt, O Lord, bring healing to my soul that has sinned against thee. Help me not to lose that sense of awesome wonder when I think of Your goodness and love. Please help me regain the zeal, the thrust, and the fire I once possessed for You. Help me to keep that fire burning this time, never to lose it again. Let Your Spirit renew in my heart. I place my being in your hands and pray for forgiveness in Jesus’ name, amen.
