Thank You Lord! Thank You for making a way for ALL OF US. Thank You for calling us according to Your purposes. Thank You for revealing Your glory to us. Thank You for extending to us the privilege of worshiping and receiving Your wonderful promises. You promised salvation and Jesus was sent. You promised Holy Spirit and He is here. I pray we embrace the fulfillment of Your promise and the faithfulness of Your word, and are empowered to walk out the purposes You've already set before us. We praise You and thank You for Your Love, in Jesus Name amen!
