Daily devotional: Peace and accomplishments are from God

Scripture
Lord, you establish peace for us; all that we have accomplished you have done for us.
Isaiah 26:12 NIV

Observation
Peace comes from the Lord! And we have a lot less to do with our accomplishments than we might think. The Lord gives, and the Lord takes away. He is the One who is accomplishing things for us and through us.

Application
Acknowledge the One who provides for the accomplishments I get to be involved with. Do not get caught up in pride but remain humble and thankful. Give thanks to God my Savior!

Prayer
Lord, thank you for this new day. Thank you for the rest and the peace you have established for me. What amazing gifts these are. And thank you for accomplishing things for me and through me. I am grateful to be a part of what You are doing, and I acknowledge You as responsible for each success. I also acknowledge Your sovereignty when You discipline me for my benefit. I pray that I would be teachable and malleable each time to learn and grow from Your discipline. Thank you for treating me as Your son. You are awesome and worthy of all praise! I love you!
