Psalm 33:8-9

Let all the earth fear the Lord. Let all the inhabitants of the world revere him. For he said, “Let it be,” and it was! He gave a command, and there it stood.

Dear Heavenly Father,

Forgive us when we fail to recognize and fear the power of your word. How amazing it would have been to watch you create the world. Whereas when you spoke, something came into existence. Your word is powerful, creative, and lasting; you gave it to us in the holy Scripture. There you have recorded your will and plan of salvation for mankind; your plan was already in place when man fell into sin. Your Son would take on human flesh, live a perfect life and die an innocent death for us. You promised his coming throughout the Old Testament to Adam, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and all the judges, kings, and prophets. It all pointed to Jesus, and when he came, he fulfilled your promise to restore us to you by doing what you said. He was beaten for our iniquities, and his hands and feet were pierced on the cross for our sins; our punishment was on him. Jesus gave up his life to defeat sin, death, and the devil for us. In your salvational plan, you showed the world your love and mercy.

Lord, your words are powerful and creative, so we pray that your Holy Spirit will create a new heart in us to believe the words you have given us. Trusting that our sins are forgiven, we are placed back into fellowship with you. Father, we ask that you would please give us openings to share this good news of your salvational plan with those who may or may not know you; so they will also revere you knowing your love and mercy, trusting in your Son to save them from all their sins. Thank you, Lord. Amen.

We respect things with a destructive force: water, wind, fire, etc. But how much more should we appreciate the one who created everything we have out of nothing? When we had nothing, we were condemned to hell; he established his plan of salvation to save us all.
