Below, I have written another devotional prayer that begins with “God, You are…”. This one focuses on God’s intentional concern for each of us as individuals. Praise Him with me:
And when Jesus came to the place, He looked up and said to him, “Zaccheus, hurry and come down, for today I must stay at your house.” Luke 19:5
God, You are Intentional. Just as you sent Noah a rainbow in the sky, and just as You sent Elijah bread in the mouths of ravens, You sweetly send Your love to me. Likewise, just as You waited by the well for the woman, and just as You called for the blind man to come, You also presented Yourself to me. Thank You, O God, for Your pursuing love. You guide me like a Shepherd through Your word, allowing me to graze on just what I need for each circumstance. And then, You send me reminders throughout the day letting me know that You are always with me. Yes, Your peaceful presence makes me smile; Your absolute action makes me laugh. I am awed that You are intimately acquainted with all my ways; and I am overwhelmed by Your alluring kindness. So, I will watch expectantly for You, O God. Your intentional love has become my inexpressible joy. Yes, my soul delights that You call me by name, and that I am Yours.
