Jesus, by your blood and Holy Spirit please cleanse my conscience of all dead works. Thank you.
Then he brought him outside and said, "Look now toward heaven, and count the stars if you are able to number them." And he said to him, "So shall your descendants be." And he believed in the LORD, and he accounted it to him for righteousness. (Genesis 15:5-6)
Father, bring us to that righteousness that comes from believing your word to us. Thank you.
A word received: Come into my arms.
