1. I WORSHIP GOD Because He Is My Creator
Lord, I worship You as the Creator of heaven and earth. All things made by You and
everything You created is good. I praise You for all our beautiful creation. You
placed the earth on its foundation so that it can never be moved (Psalm 104:5). Your
right hand stretched out the Heavens (Isaiah 48:13). Thank You that You have
blessed us with light and dark, sun and rain, food and water, land and sea, trees and
flowers, days and seasons."The heavens are Yours, the earth also is Yours; the
world and all its fullness, You have founded them" (Psalm 89:11).
-When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars,
which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man
that you care for him? You made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and
crowned him with glory and honor. You made him ruler over the works of your hands;
you put everything under his feet" (Psalm 8:3-6 NIV). I know that "both men and
women come from God their Creator" (1 Corinthians 11 :12 TLB). "How many are
your works, O LORD! In wisdom you have made them all; the earth is full of your
creatures" (Psalm 104:24 NIV).
O Lord, thank You that You created me and gave me life. "You formed my inward
parts; You covered me in my mother's womb" (Psalm 139:13). I praise You, "for I
am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are Your works, and that my soul
knows very well" (Psalm 139:14). I praise You for every breath I take and thank You
that I was created for good things. Help me to be renewed in the image of You, my
Creator (Colossians 3:10 NIV). I know You made me to be so much more than I am
now and that You will help me become all You created me to be.
I praise You for the people You have created, each one unique and valuable and
carrying in their spiritual DNA a purpose that is distinctive and priceless as well. I am
grateful for the potential for good that You have placed within each one. Help me to
value others as Your creation and see them the way You do. Thank You, Jesus, that
You are "the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation" (Colossians
“You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power; for You created all
things, and by Your will they exist and were created” (Revelation 4:11). I worship You
as my Creator and I praise You for all that You have created.
2. I WORSHIP GOD Because He is My Heavenly Father
Heavenly Father, I worship You this day. I am so grateful that You are not a distant or
remote Father, but a close and loving one. You are closer to me than an earthly
father ever could be. Your love for me is unconditional and everlasting. I know that
no father on earth is perfect, but You are. Thank You that as my Father, You care
about what happens to me. You provide for me, teach me, plan for my future, supply
all my needs, and because You love me You will never let me get away with
disobedience to Your rules. Thank You that "You have given me the heritage of
those who fear Your name; and I have inherited great and eternal riches from You
(Psalm 61:5)."LORD, you alone are my inheritance, my cup of blessing You guard all
that is mine. The land You have given me is a pleasant Iand. What a wonderful
inheritance!" (Psalm 16:5-6 NLT).
Lord, help me to forgive my earthly father for anything he did or did not do. Show me
if there is anything I have not forgiven that I am ne: seeing. I don't want my lack of
forgiveness to stand in the way of my intimate relationship with You. As Your child, I
long to make You proud. Help me to always do what is pleasing in Your sight. I want
to be separate from all that would keep me separated from You (2 Corinthians
6:17-18). Thank You that I have been predestined to be adopted. as Your child
through Jesus because it gives You pleasure and it is Your will for my life
(Ephesians 1:5). I praise and honor You as my Father God and give thanks always
for all things, especially Your Father's love (Ephesians 5:20).
Therefore do not be like them. For your Father knows the things you have need of
before you ask Him. In this manner, therefore, pray: Our Father in heaven, hallowed
be Your name.
