In the timeless paradise of my God and King, I set my hope. Let my soul magnify and exalt You, God of my heart. Let my mouth forever praise You, King of my spirit. Reign in me and over me as I yield to the sovereignty of Your powerful grace. Have Your way as You protect me from the path of selfish desire that only leads to destruction. Make me Yours. Keep me, Jesus. Hold me closer than ever before. As the darkness encroaches, may fear not shut the eyes of my soul against the flicker of faith’s light. As the storm rages, may doubt not knock down the peace gifted to me from Christ. For You have called me by Your Name. You have set me on a rock. You have empowered me as a warrior for the Kingdom of heaven. Equip me, Lord God, to live in that identity. Help me to embrace my image-bearing potential regardless of how other people see me. I am a child of God. Under the Word of 1 John 3:1 and the authority of Christ Jesus, I pray.
See what an incredible quality of love the Father
has shown to us, that we would [be permitted to]
be named and called and counted the children of God!
And so we are! For this reason the world does not know us,
because it did not know Him.
1 John 3:1, AMP
