Father God, this morning’s verse is about food, but it gives me pause to evaluate my own standing with you. I was made in your image as part of a fallen world, but you made a way through Jesus to establish me as a new creation clothed in the white robes of righteousness. My gratitude wells up, filling my eyes with tears of thanksgiving. I exalt you for your greatness, your faithfulness, your loving kindness and your compassion in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.
“For everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving, for it is made holy by the word of God and prayer.” (1 Timothy 4:4-5 ESV)
