But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. (1 Peter 2:9)
You are an amazing God. Thank you for your love and protection over my life. You chose me and called me out of the midst of my sin to be yours. I am thankful for your mercy and grace. I praise You because You call me your own.
When I am weary or heavily burdened, remind me that I am Yours. If I am lonely or insecure, help me to remember I am uniquely crafted to complete your purposes – and that I am special to You. Then Lord, give me an obedient heart to fulfill your will for my life. Use me to glorify You, and show me the Kingdom work you would have me to do.
Teach me to declare your praises every day. Help me to praise You no matter my circumstance. Show me what it means to live a life of holiness. Sanctify me, that your Son may shine through me always. When I face temptation, remind me that you have set me apart. Give me the courage to make choices that honor You.
In Jesus’ name,
