* * * * * * * * * * * *

from Acts 17:24-28 (NKJV–Bible Gateway)

Father God, you made the world and everything in it, and you are the Lord of Heaven and Earth. You do not dwell in temples made with hands. Nor do you need anything from us in order to exist, since you are the one who has given US life, breath, and all things. You have made, from one blood, every nation of mankind who dwells on Earth—no matter in what times, what localities, or what types of houses. It has always been your hope that we would (individually or in groups) seek you, reach for you, and find you. Truly, you are not far from any of us, for in you we live, and move, and have our being. We are your actual offspring.

from Psalm 91:1-2 (NKJV–Bible Gateway)

[We know that] those who dwell in the secret place of the Most High, live under your shadow (covering and protection). Therefore, we can say, Almighty God, that you are our refuge and our fortress, and we know that we can fully trust in and abide in you—the Great I Am—the God who was, who is, and who is to come.

from Colossians 2:6-10 (NKJV–Bible Gateway)

We have believed in and received you—the Lord Jesus Christ—in all your fullness, so now we choose to walk in you. We choose to daily become more rooted and grounded in you, establishing ourselves deeply in the faith you have given us, and abounding in it with thanksgiving. We are aware that there are those around us who would dearly love to cheat us out of your inheritance (through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men and to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ), because even THEY know that we are living in the fullness of the eternal and everlasting, all-powerful God. We understand that we are complete in you, Lord, and that you alone are the head of ALL principality and power. Because of that, we will remain alert, trusting in your Word and guided by Holy Spirit, and will not fall into their traps.

from Ephesians 1:22-23 (NKJV–Bible Gateway)

We understand, Father, that you have put all things under the feet of Jesus—our Sacrificed Lamb—and have made Him the head over ALL things, to the Church (which is His body) the fullness of Him who fills all in all.

from 1 John 2:28-29 (NKJV–Bible Gateway)

At this time, we are still earthly beings, but when you appear to us (whether in the Spirit, or when you return to us physically), we are able to stand in confidence, and not shame. We know that you are righteous, and that we also walk in that same righteousness, because we are born of you [and in you we live, move, and have our being].

Amen!
