Gracious Heavenly Father, in Jesus’ Name, thank you for the great blessing of salvation which gives me a home in heaven eternally. In John 3:15 Jesus said “that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.”
It has been a huge blessing and complete change for me when You saved me and did for me what You promised Israel in the Old Testament in Ezekiel 36:27a. “I will put My Spirit within you.” The indwelling of the Spirit has allowed me to have the Holy Spirit as my helper, guide in all truth, and a source of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, self control, wisdom, and power.
It is such a joy to see the effect that the power of Your Word has on my life. It has given me instruction on how to be saved and now, if I allow it, it will sanctify, instruct, and direct every phase of my life until I enter Heaven’s doors. Psalm 119:105 “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.”
Thank You that as a child of Yours, I can come to the place where all answers can be found. Hebrews 4:16 “Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and grace to help in time of need.” Direct me to continually incorporate Your Word in all situations and rely on it for all power.
I give thanks and praise for all Your attributes expressed in the Bible. I am specifically grateful for the following characteristics described by Your Names: the Lord my provider, the Lord my healer, the Lord my banner, the Lord my shepherd, the Lord my peace, the Lord my righteousness, and the Lord my sanctifier.
In Jesus’ Name, and from the bottom of my heart, thank you for who You are and for what You do for me. Amen.
