Psalm 103:20-22

Bless the Lord, you his angels, you strong warriors who obey his word by listening to what he says. Bless the Lord, all his armies, you who minister to him, you who do whatever pleases him. Bless the Lord, everything he has made in all places where he rules. Bless the Lord, O my soul.

Dear Heavenly Father,

Everything in the universe praises Your holy name and who You are by listening to Your words and doing the work You have given them to do. They all serve You out of love. You created us also to serve You, but when we fell into sin, we lost the ability to do that on our own. Now, our human natures want to reject and run from you. For this reason, You sent Your Son to restore us to You. Jesus went to the cross in our place; He suffered the punishment for our every sin and gave up His life to defeat death and the devil for us. All this is a gift from You that restores us, so by the simplicity of faith in Christ—believing and trusting Jesus forgave every one of our sins—we are restored to You. Therefore, by faith, knowing what Jesus has done for us, our souls can also bless You out of love for what You have accomplished by Your salvational plan through Jesus.

Let us praise You today because of the love and mercy You have showered upon us so that others may also know Your love and forgiveness. Please allow us to share the gospel message of Jesus’ complete forgiveness with them so they will know, believe, and trust in Him and be restored to You. Amen.

Know the love God has for you; that He sacrificed His Son to die in your place, and as the perfect sacrifice, he has forgiven every one of your sins that push you away from God. Jesus came for you to bring you to His heavenly Father.
