Thoughts on Today's Verse...

While there are many things for which we can praise God, one of the most significant is his faithfulness to do what he has planned and promised. We praise God because "in perfect faithfulness [he] has done marvelous things, things planned long ago" for our blessing, salvation, and eternal future! While many of us are big dreamers and schemers, only God can accomplish the marvelous plans he alone can make!

My Prayer...

Amazing and awesome God, thank you for planning a world full of variety and beauty. Thank you for your excellent, creative, redemptive, and loving work in our lives. Thank you for having a plan of salvation for us before the world's creation. Please help us as we seek to be more diligent and disciplined in our plans to honor you and bring you glory. In Jesus' name, we praise you. Amen.
