Abba…You gave us many commands.
I believe You did that out of love for us.
You want to bless us and You know what is best for us.
I also believe it is because
You want an active relationship with us.
As we obey You in what You have taught us
about how to walk in Your ways
we are keeping You at the center of all we do.
As we lean on You for what we need
to walk in Your ways
we are interacting with you
in a love relationship.
How honored we are that You should
create a whole universe
as a home for Your people.
You did not have to do that.
You could have created a dull ordinary place.
But no, You wanted something
spectacularly beautiful for us to enjoy.
I wonder how much more beautiful
the new heaven and earth will be.
Abba, may we always honor You
as our Creator and as
the Creator of all there is.
May we love You as You truly
deserve to be loved…
with all of our hearts,
all of our souls,
all of our minds
and all of our strengths.
May we remember
that all we have is really Yours
and that we need to ask You
what YOU want us to do with it!
May we remember that we are here
to love You
and to serve You.
We are honored to be a part
of Your will being accomplished
here on the earth.
May we remain humble,
always remembering that You are our Provider.
May we always give You honor,
keeping in mind that You are our Abba.
May we always respect You,
remembering that You are all Powerful.
May Your Shalom guard our hearts and minds in Messiah,
as we remember always what Yeshua has done for us.
