Day 6: November 19, 2021
Read: For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. – Psalm 139:13-14
Respond: Creator God, You formed, fashioned, and made me. You know me from the inside out. Because You are perfect in all of Your ways, my soul can rest in how You made me. I am fearfully and wonderfully made by Almighty God. Your Creations are purposeful, so I praise and thank You for giving me a purpose in Your Kingdom. Thank You for teaching and training me to do the work that You created me to do. Thank You that as I give You credit for the successes in my life, You are glorified. It is Your name and renown that is the desire of my heart, Lord. All that I am and all that I have comes from You; it is all sustained by You, and I want it all to glorify You! “Not to me, O Lord, not to me, but to Your name be the glory.”
Read: Your hands have made and fashioned me; give me understanding that I may learn your commandments. – Psalm 119:73
Respond: Thank You for teaching me through Your Word and for guiding me through Your Holy Spirit. Without Your Word and the Helper to show me the way, I am lost. I praise You for being the One who enlightens, establishes, and engages my heart and mind as I read and pray. Your Word is living and active and applicable to my daily life. Your Word is the final say in my life. I praise You that as I surrender my plans, my mind, and my heart to You, that You establish my steps and guide me.
Read: It is good for me that I was afflicted, that I might learn your statutes. – Psalm 119:71
Respond: Thank You that You don’t waste anything in my life. Good and bad, You use the circumstances of my life to teach and grow me. Thank You that when happened, You helped me to learn .
Continually thank the Lord for teaching and guiding You throughout the day. Give Him praise for steering you in the direction He wants you to go according to His will for your life.
