Lord, You stand by Your promises so that I might stand ON those promises

Jesus, You are “the centerpiece of everything [I believe], faithful in everything Your Father gave You to do.” Help me to fix my thoughts on You, so that I’ll not forget Your constant presence and involvement in everything I do.
You, Father, are the Master Builder of this house called by my name. You have taken up residence in my heart and You have set Your Son in charge of this house. Help me to keep a firm grip on the bold confidence I have in You as my heart serves as the place where You dwell.
Guide me down YOUR road. Help me to watch my step. Protect me from any “evil unbelief lying around that could trip [me] up and throw [me] off course, diverting [me] from You, the living God. As long as it is still Your Today, help us to keep each other on our toes so sin doesn’t slow down our reflexes. If we can only keep our grip on the sure thing we started out with, we’re in this with You, Jesus, for the long haul.”
You have said, “You keep in perfect peace the one whose mind is steadfast, because she trusts in You.” (Isaiah 26:3). Draw me to an even deeper trust in You as the things that would steal my peace increase. Help my mind to be steadfast in its focus on YOU. Keep me in Your Word and in Your will. Amen.
