1 Samuel 2.35
I'll make his position secure and he'll do his work freely in the service of my anointed one.
this is the whole point of our lives! this is the whole point of following you - our security comes from obeying you, our freedom is for us to work in your service. thank you Jesus for giving us such clear direction, for stirring in our hearts exactly what you want to happen and how you want things to be. thank you lord that we can fully rely on you to live out this amazing life, this beautiful life that is so not from our external circumstances but from the posture of our inner man - a posture of obedience, of humility, knowing full well that we are only who we are because of you, and that everything from our security to our freedom is for your purposes, for serving you. wow, lord. thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
