Heavenly Father, may we take a few moments in your holy presence, relishing your perfect love and nature. May we delight in it. May we enjoy and use the special talents you give us to express what it is like being close to your heart and resting between your powerful shoulders. I ask in the name and authority of Jesus, who split the veil to give us direct access to your throne, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“For since the message declared by angels proved to be reliable, and every transgression or disobedience received a just retribution, how shall we escape if we neglect such a great salvation? It was declared at first by the Lord, and it was attested to us by those who heard, while God also bore witness by signs and wonders and various miracles and by gifts of the Holy Spirit distributed according to his will.” (Hebrews 2: 2-4 ESV)
