He holds success in store for the upright, he is a shield to those whose walk is blameless, for he guards the course of the just and protects the way of his faithful ones (Proverbs 2:7-8 NIV).
Lord, we thank you that our success comes only by your hand and not from our own striving. We were created by you and all our talents are gifts from you. We are grateful that anything we would call successful is an example of your gracious and merciful love.
You protect us from the evil one, he cannot separate us from your love. You keep us on the straight path even when we begin to stray from you. You protect our going out and coming in. Thank you, you are faithful even when are faithless. The power of your Holy Spirit and the depth of your love knows no bounds. Thank you, Lord, that you hold us with “your righteous right hand.” We give this day to you with very grateful hearts. Amen!
