May this be a proclamation to the world that Jesus lives. Jesus is Lord and the Savior of mankind. He reigns over the heavens and the earth. Nobody is higher than Jesus, my Lord. I know this for a fact because Jesus has come into my life like a fire. Once I gave Him my heart, my life was forever changed. No matter the sins that had plagued my life for years, He came to me and my heart was cleansed. The Lord did not cast me off but ushered me into His presence. He wanted me to be with Him and I finally listened. It was His great love that brought me to the Lord. He didn’t want me to suffer but be with Him for all eternity. When this happened, all addictions in my life were removed. God broke the chains that had me bound. I was set free in the name of Jesus. There is power is in His Name. He gave me power to fight against temptation through the Holy Spirit. When Jesus died on the cross, He gave us all hope for a new day. 3Instead of having to go to a priest to pray for our sins, He has allowed us all to come to Him personally for forgiveness. His arms of mercy are extended to us all the day long. All Jesus asks is for us to answer His call. 2If you are listening to His counsel and have responded with a glad heart, then God and the angels are rejoicing. I cannot express enough how much I love Jesus. His praises surely are on my lips forevermore.
1“Praise ye the Lord.” If you love God, will you also proclaim the name of Jesus? Sing out in joyous praises, if you are saved. Cry out and tell the Lord how grateful you for His mercy. It is His love that has changed you. My heart is for Jesus. I want all the world to know that He lives. Jesus can do a mighty work in each of our lives if we just let Him. 1“I will praise the Lord with my whole heart.” I will not hold back any part of me. My heart is so thankful. It is an honor to pray to my King. 1“The works of the Lord are great.” Nobody has ever done anything greater than Jesus. His death on the cross is the greatest individual act of anyone that has ever lived. We ought to lift Him up high for His forgiveness and mercy. We would not be who we are today if He had not died for our sins. 1“His work is honourable and glorious: and his righteousness endureth for ever.” I am so grateful to be cleansed by the blood of Jesus. The Lord has given me hope. If we trust in Him always, we will be blessed and experience His amazing love. Aren’t you so grateful for what Jesus has done? I sure am and cannot keep it to myself. Jesus 1“hath made his wonderful works to be remembered: the Lord is gracious and full of compassion.” My heart is moved by His love for me. Thank You Lord.
Let us pray:
Thank You Lord for coming into my life. I am forever changed because of Your great love for me. I am so grateful for Your compassion. You saw my sinful life but never gave up on me. You continuing reached out to me until I finally came around. Thank You for extending my life, that I might repent and be made clean through Your blood. I am so grateful for Your hand of mercy. Thank You for Your forgiveness. Only You could break the chains of addiction in my life. Your love has set me free. Thank You for putting me on the right path. Your counsel has moved me to make better choices. I am a new person because of You. I am so blessed. I want all the world to know that You live. I want them to know that You can move mountains. We can be forgiven because of Your mercy. I praise You Lord. I rejoice in Your mercy. I love You. Amen.
