You will always be above, never beneath. (Deuteronomy 28:13)
Lord, we come to you confessing that we do not always obey your commands. At times, though you have written them for us, we do not even know your commands. And still you love us. Still you sent your Son Jesus to die for us. Still you reach down from heaven to heal and help us.
Therefore, you have removed our sins from us (Psalm 103:12), we claim this mighty promise that we will always be above, never beneath.
To our books we say, “Rise, you books! Be above! Stand at the top of lists! Conquer all categories! Glorify God with your virtue, might, strength, purpose, and truth!”
Thank you, Lord, for breathing life into our books and for placing our books above all others.
Amen and hallelujah!
