What manner of love is this that we should be called children of God?

What manner of love is this that we should be called children of God?

Lord, I wish I could understand the depth of Your love, but I find it impossible. Your love is without measure. Thank You for the safety, the provision, the healing of Your love.

Thank You for going before me into all of my tomorrows. You lift me up when I struggle to stand. You carry me with Your strength when I’m too weak to go on. You shelter me in the shadow of Your wing and lift up Your banner of war against my enemy. I praise You for Your love.

I ask that You strengthen and encourage those who are struggling today. Life is hard. Overwhelming. And burdened with tremendous responsibilities and sorrows. But You Lord are our God. You are our Strength. Our Joy. Our Peace.

I ask that You reveal Yourself as our Peace to those who are distraught with despair. Call them to come and rest in You — to be still, cease striving, and know that You are God.

Yes, Lord, You are God and we belong to You. What a blessed thought. Thank You Lord.

In Jesus’ Name I pray,

Amen
