Shining in Favor
Take a moment to refresh, refocus, and refine your faith.
God Who Created the Heavens and Stretched Them Over the Earth, how can I fathom the privilege of being in your house, of dedicating my life to your service? You lavish favor on me even when I least deserve it. You protect and vindicate me against attempts to blemish my character. You preserve me through troubles and encourage me in the face of every challenge. You find enjoyment in my company and illuminate me like a lantern glowing with the light of your own Holy Spirit. May I live righteously according to your blessed calling. May I shine bright for you along whatever path you lead me. Amen.
Isaiah 42:1, 6
Here is my servant, whom I uphold, my chosen, in whom my soul delights; I have put my spirit upon him; he will bring forth justice to the nations. . . . I am the Lord; I have called you in righteousness; I have taken you by the hand and kept you; I have given you as a covenant to the people, a light to the nations,
