I am the Lord, your Holy One. Isaiah 43:15
In the Bible, we read about Jehoshaphat, the king of Judah, a righteous man who walked uprightly before God. God’s presence was always with him and helped him defeat his enemies every time they attacked his kingdom. God gave him victory after victory in his lifetime. Yes, to see victory everyday in your life, surrender yourself to God and lead a righteous living. He would accept your submission and enable you to live a holy life. Our God “Jehovah Mekkadesh”, is the Lord who sanctifies you! Bible says, “But as he who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, since it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy” (1 Peter 1:15-16).
He is the One who chased after you with unconditional love, washed you with His blood and transferred you for His kingdom. This God will surely help you to lead a righteous life. The One who said, “I am the Lord, your Holy One” (Isaiah 43:15) will cleanse you with His word every day and prepare you as a beautiful bride! Yes, it is God, who makes us holy.
A Prayer for Today
O Lord who sanctifies me, forgive me from all of my iniquities, wash me with Your blood and give me a new life. From today onwards, help me to walk uprightly and receive Your abundant blessings. Help me to receive the cleansing waters from Your word every day. Let me reflect the nature of ‘new creation.’ Help me to walk like You on this earth, magnifying Your name. In Jesus’ precious name I pray, Amen.
