God, You Are Fulfilling Your Purpose for Me! (Prayer Journal 188)

Father, in Jesus' name, I need You to minister to my soul. I realize that I am nothing without You and can do nothing apart from You. I am because You are the great I AM! You are my creator, sustainer, and my redeemer. You are my very life. I am of infinite value and great worth because You created me in Your image and redeemed me by the precious blood of Christ.

Jesus it is mind blowing to think that You the image of the invisible God came to the earth in the image of sinful humanity. You were tempted in every manner such as us, yet You never sinned. Thus, You are able to help us when we are tempted. Through Your death You destroyed the one, satan, who has the power of death. You were raised to life from the dead and will never die again. You are the Resurrection and the Life! You have brought life and immortality to light through the gospel. Thank You for the forgiveness of sins through Your death and new life by Your resurrection.

You have purchased me at a high price by Your blood. In light of Your matchless mercies, help me to give all that I am and have to You without reservation, hesitation, and compromise. My life is completely wrapped up in You. For I am crucified with Christ nevertheless I live. Yet not I but Christ lives in me that this life that I now live in the flesh I live by faith in You, the Son of God, who loved me and gave Yourself up for me.

God, I am so glad that You do not demand

perfection from me as You are fulfilling Your purpose for me. You are patient with me as You give me the desire and help to yield myself to You while You conform me to the image of Christ. I am thankful for the ways that You allow others to see You and their need for You even through my imperfections. For You are perfect in all of Your ways. I am so thankful for Your mercy and grace to me. Forgive me for the times when I act like I do not need You as I want to take credit for my spiritual growth. It is truly what Your Spirit is producing in and through me for Your glory.

Forgive me for the times when I think that You and Your grace are not enough for me. You are more than enough. You are everything that I have ever needed, need now, and will ever need. Help me to bring my insecurities and weaknesses to You so that You may be my stability and strength. In the areas where I have sinned greatly or believe that I am doing worse than others, help me to see myself how You see me in Christ. My identity is found in You, Jesus, not in my performance or how I compare with others.

Bring me to the place where I do not care what people think about me, do not fear what people can do to me, nor live to please them. Make me a man who fears the Lord and lives to please and give You glory in everything. I am accepted and approved by You. In Christ I am Your dearly loved son who You delight in. You have loved me with an everlasting love that nothing shall ever separate me from. Help me to live out of the overflow of an intimate union with You.

Help me to not shrink back in fear but to live by faith. Lord, dare I say it once again, 'I need You!' Help me to daily surrender to the Lordship of Jesus, to yield to the Holy Spirit, to walk in obedience to Your Word, and to submit to Your will. I need You to breakthrough in my heart and soul. Move me from duty to devotion to You. May the overflow of my intimacy with You spill over into my marriage, family, work, and ministry as You use me to represent You in the Church and in the world. In Jesus' name, Amen!!!
