Oh Lord, I love You and give You everything that I am. What I do in life does not matter unless You are leading me. Therefore, I come to people and lift You up, that You may become more important than myself. It is my desire for people of all walks of life and of all ages to come to know You, Jesus, as their Lord God and Savior. That they will begin seeking You daily through prayer, Bible study, and doing Your will. That their belief may no longer be something they say they have, but it is now who they are from the inside out. Truly, I cannot abide enough in Your presence, for in You alone is there eternal life. It is not through the teachings of this world, but through abiding in You can I discover what my purpose is in life. Truly, only You can lead me into the truth. I am able to escape the darkness and be led into Your glorious life. And Lord, I admit that I am nothing without You. I may have accomplished things, but those things are meaningless unless You had a hand in it. And because You did, I give You the glory and tell others to give You the glory also. I say, “do not lift me up, but lift up the Lord God who saves.” I love You, Jesus. I give You glory and praise. Amen.
John 3:29-31 (KJV)
29 He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of the bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him, rejoiceth greatly because of the bridegroom’s voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled.
30 He must increase, but I must decrease.
31 He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all.
We must decrease while Jesus increases in our life. Then, can people see the Lord God in us and rejoice.
