VERSE OF THE DAY
Ezra came up from Babylon. He was a teacher well versed in the Law of Moses, which the Lord, the God of Israel, had given. The king had granted him everything he asked, for the hand of the Lord his God was on him.
Reference – THE BOOK OF EZRA : Chapter 7 Verse 6 (NIV)
Abba Father, thank you for another blessed day in our lives.Thank you for keeping us safe in your care, under your mighty wings. Lord help us to live our lives honouring you. Help us to stay committed to your call in our lives. Convict us through thy Holy Spirit that we may repent of our sins and choose continually to walk on the path you have set for us, in all obedience, just as Jesus did. May we always remember that you are the Most High, the Alpha and the Omega, the omnipotent ,omnipresent and omniscient God whose favour we should desire the most. We seek your favour Lord and we thank you for your assurance that whoever seeks you will not be put to shame. Those who wait on you shall renew their strength because the Mighty God of Israel is the strength of their heart. In a world stained by prejudices and hypocrisy, lies and deception, the promise that you are always close to anyone who earnestly call upon Your Name gives us courage and hope. Lord, we thank you for all your goodness towards us your people. May we not trust in horses or chariots or in the strength of men, but only in the Mighty Name of Jesus that can deliver us from every trap the enemy has set before us. May your Words be a lamp to our feet. May we always remember that it is better to put trust in the Lord than in man, because you are always faithful and righteous , a strong tower to anyone who run to you for help. Lord, may your favour always rest upon us . Give us wisdom to seek your face first in everything we do. May we humble ourselves in your Sight , under your Mighty Hands ,that you may lift us up at the right moment and we may give you glory. Praise and glory be yours Father, always and forevermore. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
