Father God, With your never-ending love and goodness, you offer us so many opportunities in life to use our gifts and talents. Blessings you have generously and graciously given. And it is in your almighty, sovereign strength alone that all our efforts are executed and made possible. However, many times we are guilty of taking too much credit, assuming control of our outcomes, and then struggling to slow down in our striving. Forgive us for not sufficiently stopping to acknowledge you as our true source of strength and power. We are thankful for the work and plans you place before us, but we can become consumed, tired, and long for refills of rest. Help us release to you whatever is behind us and all that is in front of us. Fortify our confidence that you will be exalted, that you will be lifted up, and that your will will be done. Help us to rest in these truths. Help us to truly rest with you. Help us rest in you. Lord, you are trustworthy, and we trust you. In Your Son’s Powerful Name, Amen.
