We were made to declare God’s praise, to tell of who He is and all He has done.
Our Father, the Great I Am, has created the heavens and the earth, all things seen and unseen. All things were created by Him and for Him and He holds all things together!
He holds us together as well, beloved. He has created us, given us breath and an eternal spirit. He has called us by name and created us for His glory.
“He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.” Colossians 1:15-18 (NKJV)
In Isaiah 43:21, it says He has formed us for Himself so that we may declare His praise upon the earth! We decree that we at FHOP shall do just that! This is our assignment from the Lord and a joy for us to fulfill.
Prayer: Father, we hearken to You, we follow after rightness and justice, we seek and inquire of You, Lord. We look to the Rock from which we were hewn, and to the hole in the quarry from which we were dug. We look to Abraham and to Sarah who bore us; for you called him when he was but one and You blessed him and made him many (Isaiah 51:1-2).
We thank You, Lord, that You will comfort all our waste places; and You will make our wilderness like Eden, and our desert like the garden of the Lord. Joy and gladness will be found in us, thanksgiving and the voice of song and instrument of praise (Isaiah 51:3).
Father, I make a declaration right now for the Father’s House of Prayer. We are Your garden, Lord. Joy and gladness is found in us; our hearts are full of thanksgiving. You will hear our voices lifted up in praise and our instruments in song! We rejoice in your Presence!
