I love to watch people fall in love. Admittedly, I am a bit of a matchmaker and like it even more when I happen to get one right. I love to watch the gradual progression from the stage of indifference to a reluctant date, to an eager second date, to the surprise of, “I want to go on a third date,” and so on all the way to the wedding aisle. It is especially joyful when the couple crosses over from “like” to “love,” but one of them has not realized it yet (even though everyone else can see it all over their faces).
There is just something about being in love. I think this is exactly how Jesus wants us to be with Him. Not only to love Him, but to be in love with Him.
When we truly come to know the depth of His great love for us, we can’t help but love Him in return!
Focus on His love for you today.
"As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you." (John 15:9)
Have you ever forgotten anything? It seems like the older I get, the more often I forget things unless I intentionally choose to remember them. From birthdays, to meetings, to dinners, I have to write things down or input them into my calendar so I remember them.
As Christians, it is so important that we actively choose to remember the promises of God in His Word, or we will forget them.
When we remember what God has said, then we have courage to step out and act in faith.
Meditate on God’s promises for you today.
… be careful that you do not forget the LORD, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. (Deuteronomy 6:12)
Have you ever stopped to think, “Why am I doing everything I’m doing? Is it God’s plan for my life, or is it just what I think I’m supposed to do?
The frustration we often feel during certain seasons of life is due to the fact that we’ve never stopped to ask ourselves these kinds of questions. As a result, we live by default instead of by God’s design.
If we live by default, then we will mechanically go through our lives feeling unsatisfied and uninspired. That is not God’s plan.
When we enter every season of life understanding that it has been carefully designed by God as a vital step on our journey and part of our “all,” we can then live each one with purpose and passion, whether we fully understand God’s plan or not!
And God said, “Let there be lights in the vault of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark the sacred times, and days and years …” (Genesis 1:14)
Where there is no revelation, people cast off restraint; but blessed is the one who heeds wisdom’s instruction. (Proverbs 29:18)
Have you ever dreamed of being a superhero?
I always dreamed of being Wonder Woman. My aspirations of becoming a superhero came to naught, as countless other little girls’ dreams have, but aren’t there days in our lives when we feel like we have to be a superwoman if we’re going to get through it alive?
The “secret” I’m about to reveal won’t eliminate these kinds of days, but it will take the stress out of living through them. The secret is, we don’t have to be superwoman; we just need to be supernatural!
No matter where you are in life, where you’ve come from or what you may have experienced, God has an “all” designed specifically for you so you can become a force – supernaturally empowered by the Holy Spirit – that can change your world!
… if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you. (Romans 8:11)
