O God, Lord of Heaven and Earth, You are completely sovereign and self-sufficient, and You don’t need a single thing from me. As David confesses in Psalm 8:3-4, “When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them?”
Yet, You care in ways that are so far beyond my comprehension. You give everyone life, breath, everything. In You, we live and have a significance that no one can take away from us. How dreadful it is when I place other things above You; You deserve to be at the center of my life. Please forgive me when I choose lesser things. Forgive me when I defile my heart with idols that promise temporary pleasure. Salvation is found in no one else but You. My purpose is found entirely in You. By Your Spirit, may I live out of that purpose acknowledging You alone as Lord. Help me adjust my life to Your plan, knowing that in us, You see something worth saving. Amen.
