I raise a hallelujah, for this morning that You gave to me. I raise a hallelujah, for the heart You put inside of me…
I had the song from Bethel Music Raise a Hallelujah on my mind and in my heart as I slept last night and as I woke this morning. In fact, I have had this song glued to me since I heard a guest (Setnick Sene His YouTube) sing it past Sunday at Calvary Jupiter. Of course, those of you that know the song know that I changed the lyrics. I did so based on the things that I am grateful for this morning. I mention this to share how a song and offering worship to God has turned my mornings into my favorite part of the day. I pray that I can practice more of this throughout my days with the goal or perfect union with the Holy Spirit until we see Him coming on the clouds…
Psalm 71:20 New International Version (NIV)
20 Though You have made me see troubles,
many and bitter,
You will restore my life again;
from the depths of the earth
You will again bring me up.
Abba, my caring and merciful Father, please hear my prayer. I am so thankful and grateful that You help me to see troubles and bitter things. While I do not enjoy them, I know You are using them to mature our relationship. I pray for wisdom and understanding during these bitter moments so that I can use them for Your glory and not play the victim, which I am so accustomed to doing. Heavenly Father, I pray for a blanket of grace and peace to cloak us, Your children, as we go out into Your glorious day. In Jesus’ name, amen.
