May the favor of the Lord our God rest on us;
establish the work of our hands for us—
yes, establish the work of our hands.
Do you ever ask God to establish the work of your hands? Many times we get so busy in life that even though we’re people of faith we don’t stop to recognize all our blessings, and to ask God to add His blessings. Sometimes we act like it’s just luck, but it’s not. God loves us and wants to bless us, and He wants to do great things for us, but he also wants us to remember him in the midst of what we do. It is good to pray daily, “Oh God establish the work of my hands”.
When we forget to ask God’s blessing on all we do, and all we want to accomplish in life, we take the grace of God for granted. God’s Mercy is from everlasting to everlasting, but we should never take it for granted. And, who knows how much more God May do for us and through us if we learn to acknowledge Him first in all things, and ask his blessing more often (Prov. 3:5-6).
Today, won’t you take a moment to thank God for the grace He extends to you everyday, and the waves of mercy He brings into your life. You wouldn’t be where you are today if it weren’t for his grace and mercy. And even if you’re not where you want to be, that’s all the more reason to ask God to establish the work of your hands.
Grace and Peace,
Father of all mercy, I thank you for all you have done, and for all you are going to do. Please establish the work of my hands in your kingdom and for your glory. Amen.
