The Lord my God is my Father and Protector. He is the only one who sees me and knows me and will protect me. I am scared quite a lot these days – we live in very challenging times, but His love and power remain the same.
My Father God has made me, saved me from my sinful nature, and has lifted me out of the filth of my sinful life and set me on a rock. The rock is my Saviour, Jesus. I adore Him because of what He has done for me, and the dreadful price He paid to rescue me from sin. He did this because my Father asked Him to. He was obedient even to death, so I will never have to face it, as He had to. Death has lost its sting because of what my Father planned for me.
“Death, where is your sting? Hades, where is your victory?” 1 Corinthians 15:55 WEB
He chose me and lifted me up. My Father God chose me and lifted me up and gave me to Christ as His everlasting portion. What a privilege I have in Him.
“But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.” 1 Peter 2:9 NIV
The privileges go on and on. I lift my hands my arms to you, Father God, for not giving up on me, and for bringing me to this point today, and knowing, because of faith, that I will be safe forever. You are my protector, and whatever happens to me, you will be right there with me. Speak, O Lord, and I will listen.
Then we say, “Speak Lord, for your servant is listening.” 1 Samuel 3:10 NIV
When we pray we address the Lord, our Father, for He alone is our Father, and we revere Him and worship Him. The Father is the head of all things. We thank our Saviour Jesus for what He did for us, as we thank our Mother and Father for what they did and do for us, and we do everything right, in the power of our gracious and loving Holy Spirit.
“Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.” John 14:23 KJV
What precious promises we possess, as children of the Heavenly kingdom….
