Father, I long to be with You. Take me where You are. Surely Your presence is in this place and I knew it not. Increase my awareness, Lord. Magnify my faith. Glorify Yourself through me in this life You have given me. Be high and lifted up, Jesus. Let the truth of Your teaching change me from the inside-out. Let the love You have shown me draw me to Yourself in power and humility. There is no other that I want to serve besides You. Take me down off the throne of my own heart so that You can reign supreme. Light up the shadows of self-deception that linger within me so that all darkness is vanquished by the power of my inheritance in Christ. You have given me much more than I can even fathom. You have taken me to places that I don’t deserve. Lord, show me where to step next. Enable me to honor You no matter what adversity I face. May the goal of my life be to point others to You, to the direction of heaven. Under the Word of 1 Corinthians 15:49 and the authority of Christ, I pray.
Just as we have borne the image of the man of dust,
we shall also bear the image of the man of heaven.
1 Corinthians 15:49, ESV
