Genesis 49:8-12 (KJV)
8 Judah, thou art he whom thy brethren shall praise: thy hand shall be in the neck of thine enemies; thy father’s children shall bow down before thee.
9 Judah is a lion’s whelp: from the prey, my son, thou art gone up: he stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion; who shall rouse him up?
10 The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.
11 Binding his foal unto the vine, and his ass’s colt unto the choice vine; he washed his garments in wine, and his clothes in the blood of grapes:
12 His eyes shall be red with wine, and his teeth white with milk.
Oh Lord, it is a blessing to know You. Thank You for allowing me to have another chance in life and for my sins to be forgiven. It is through Your blood that my whole life has been changed and I am eternally grateful. Where I had no way to overcome sin, You gave me power to resist the temptations of the evil. It is because of Your strength in my life that I have found freedom from my addictions. You have surely done great things in my life. All the praise and glory to Your holy Name, Jesus. Thank You dear God for breaking the chains of bondage in my life and for raising me up into Your light. Surely, Your power to save is amazing and has taken a sinner like me and transformed me to live like You. It is Your holiness that I now see and I can never have enough time with You in Your Words, the Bible, and in prayer. It is Your counsel and guidance that I need to be happy. There is joy found in Your hands, oh Lord. It is my desire to have less of me and more of You, every day of my life. Take every evil thought captive and replace those thoughts with things that are holy. May Your holiness reside upon me, that others may see Your good works and desire to follow You also. Allow Your love to fall down upon all people I encounter. I pray that they experience the same joy that You have given to me and also desire to have the joy You give in their life also. I know that only roads that lead to You, Jesus, is for salvation, while all others lead to destruction. I love You Lord. Amen.
Every follower of Jesus also does what He says, while giving Him praise and worship. The Lord Jesus is the center of their lives.
