Righteous Flourish


Whoever trusts in his riches will fall, but the righteous will flourish like a green leaf. Proverbs 11:28

Heavenly Father, Thank you for never changing.  You are always there.  You have always have been there and always will be.  You never fail, fall short, make a mistake, or do anything that is wrong, ever.  Your ways are all perfect and good.  We love you so much!   Please help us to put all of our trust in you and to remember that our hope in you will never lead to disappointment in the long term, even if we can't see why bad things happen at the time.  You know it all from beginning to end, and you see the complete picture.  We believe Jesus when he said he will never leave or forsake us and nothing can separate us from his love.  Nothing can take us from his grasp and so we rest secure, knowing that everything that happens has a good purpose in the scope of eternity.  Please help us to remember that this life is only temporary and what matters most is that your beautiful, holy name is honored and glorified by those whom you have adopted as your children.  Let us be bright lights in this increasingly dark world so that others can see you are trustworthy and altogether worthy of our praise.  In Jesus' saving, redeeming name, Amen.
