Thank you, Heavenly Father, for not only giving the command to be holy but that You have given me a way to fulfill that command. “But as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, because it is written, “Be holy, for I am holy.“‘ 1 Peter 1:15-16
You have set me apart and made me holy because of my relationship with Jesus Christ, Who covered the gap between You, Heavenly Father, and me, a sinful human. I appreciate the fact that Your holiness purifies me and shows me how to continually be separated from all that is unholy.
Develop in me the connection between Your Holiness and my wholeness in life. Give me the courage to live a life that is different from the ways of the world and realize that the way I live in private and in public has an influence on what people think of the God I profess to serve.
Show me any hindrances that keep You from being able to develop Your Holiness in and through me, and enable me to reject whatever is not the best for me. May I experience the truth of Psalm 29:2 “Give unto the Lord the glory due to His name; Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.”
I bring these requests to You, my Father in Heaven, in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
