Thank You for Your word God. Thank You it contains lessons, teaching, inspiration, correction, edification, encouragement and everything we need to learn what you have for us. Thank You for the interpreter of Your word for each of us through the Holy Spirit and giving me the desire to seek all Your truth and promises.
I must remember that we minister through our lives, we don't save through our lives. We all have to recharge. I pray that you are doing so in the strength of the Lord, and that you are resting in the sanctuary of His presence.
We all have a past. We all have things that held us up, stopped us in our tracks and we all need to be forgiven... Give it all to Jesus and know that He already gave it to you, and that was always the plan.
"This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life. God didn't go to all the trouble of sending his Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was. He came to help, to put the world right again. Anyone who trusts in him is acquitted; anyone who refuses to trust him has long since been under the death sentence without knowing it. And why? Because of that person's failure to believe in the one-of-a-kind Son of God when introduced to him." ~John 3:16 (The Message)
If you are needing strength, know that you can GO TO GOD DIRECTLY FOR THAT STRENGTH. I pray that they will find the amazing strength, courage and power so graciously given by our mighty God.
We have the greatest opportunities every day to shine the Jesus light for those around us. I believe we do that by staying in His word, understanding that we ARE LOVED GREATER than we will ever know, seeing GOD all around us AND KEEPING OUR EYES and HEARTS on the things that are important to God.
.... and the greatest of these is love, LOVE, LOVE!
"But for right now, until that completeness, we have three things to do to lead us toward that consummation: Trust steadily in God, hope unswervingly, love extravagantly. And the best of the three is love." ~1 Corinthians 13:13 (The Message)
All we have to do is pay attention to the things around us to see God at work through others, through our circumstances and through our responses. Thank You Father for being here for us, and giving us all of You, may we honor You by giving all of us to You. Faith, Lord, yes, that is all we need... just a little will do, as you are mighty to save, perfect to love and amazing to ponder. Thank You. Thank You!
