“Which my lips uttered and my mouth spoke when I was in distress. I shall offer to You burnt offerings of fat beasts, with the smoke of rams; I shall make an offering of bulls with male goats.” (Psalm 66:14-15)
Through all that comes, the Lord desires that we learn to be people who praise Him in spite of circumstances. Offer yourself to the Lord and go where He will send you. Do not hold back and do not be conditional in your offerings. The Lord will create in you a clean and new heart that will worship and praise Him in all circumstances. Come as you are and bow to the Creator of all things.
Lord I am conditional in my life. I react depending upon the circumstances. Guide me away from being conditional to simply living the life You have given me knowing that only in You is there hope and a future. Renew in me a heart that longs after You and the things You would have me do. Lead me in Your ways always that I may become sanctified as You have called me to be.
Lord Jesus You have come to lead the way in righteousness. Guide me through all of the obstacles that will come my way knowing that You will lead me to where I need to be. In creating me to be like You help me see all of the obstacles that are to be overcome that I may understand more fully as I pass through this life in preparation for all that is to come. Amen.
