Heavenly Father, in Jesus’ Name, I come to You this morning to praise and thank You for the encouragement that meditating on Your attributes gives me. When I start the day, it is a great comfort to rest in the fact that You are all-knowing. Psalm 139:3 “You comprehend my path and my lying down, and are acquainted with all my ways.” It is a great blessing to know You do not come and go at will, but are an ever-present God. There is not a time or place You are not near. Jeremiah 23:23 “‘Am I a God near at hand,” says the LORD, “and not a God afar off?‘”
With so much evil, confusion, and heartache all around, it is good to know that You as my Heavenly Father are not limited as man is. You can change and correct anything You desire. You are Almighty God (all-powerful). Jeremiah 32:17 “Ah, Lord GOD! Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and outstretched arm. There is nothing too hard for You.” I thank You that I do not have to be concerned that Your attributes will ever be modified or obsolete. Because You are immutable (unchanging), Your attributes are the same “yesterday, today and forever” (Hebrews 13:8). Malachi 3:6a “For I am the LORD, I do not change.“
Direct me not to be surprised by situations in life and try to be in control of them, since You are in control and are not surprised by any situation. Thank you that I am a born-again child of Yours and thus have access to all these promises. With love, Amen.
