“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Romans 10:13
As I approached the Lord in prayer this morning, my heart was filled with thanksgiving. Just to think that out of the millions of people in this world, God chose me to be one of His own. He knew me before I was born and had a plan and purpose for my life.
He kept His hand upon me and brought me to a place of repentance and gave me a desire to seek after Him. He directed my steps through my teenage years, and no doubt many times kept me from making wrong decisions that would have turned me away from His chosen path. All through my life, He has been there for me.
My heart is filled with praise and thanksgiving today for all the blessings He has poured out. A song we used to sing in church has been going through my mind, with these words: “When the Lord said whosoever, He included me.” I am so glad that He included me.
Prayer: Thank you, Jesus, that you included me and gave me your great salvation. Help me to honour you in everything I do.
