We cannot earn God’s love through striving or good works; it is a gift!
Isn’t it amazing that God simply calls us to delight in Him and out of our relationship with Him we are able to live the full, abundant life He has called us to live?
Proverbs 8:30 says, I was filled with delight day after day, rejoicing always in his presence …
As we spend time in His presence and reflect upon His goodness, we will be filled with PEACE and JOY!
Take some time to simply stop and rest in His presence, love and delight. God adores you simply for who you are.
I have one word on my heart for you today ... “BE”!
We cannot just talk about the needs of others, cry about the needs of others, or sing about the needs of others; we must BE the hands and feet of Jesus and meet the needs of others.
My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth. (1 John 3:18 NKJV)
“Don’t live frozen in the glory of some distant memory or in the promise of some faraway future. Make the most of every moment TODAY.”
Think about that statement ...
We only have this moment right now. The truth is, our past is gone and we are not guaranteed a tomorrow.
Seek to live life awake and fully present, instead of allowing regrets, distractions or even hopes to interfere with what God is calling us to do TODAY.
Ephesians 5:15-17 says, So be careful how you live. Don’t live like fools, but like those who are wise. Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days. Don’t act thoughtlessly, but understand what the Lord wants you to do (NLT).
I want to challenge you to be intentional in the way that you live, realizing that every breath is a gift from God! Delight yourself in the Lord today!
Today, maybe you’re at a crossroads and need to make an important decision.
I want to encourage you that it is not always about seeing everything perfectly, but more about trusting a perfect God absolutely.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths. (Proverbs 3:5-6 NKJV)
The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD, and He delights in his way. (Psalm 37:23 NKJV)
I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye. (Psalm 32:8 NKJV)
God wants to be a part of everything in our lives!
It is mind boggling to me that the God of the universe wants to spend every moment of every day with me.
He is not satisfied with merely having visitation rights every Sunday or Wednesday at a church service or two. He wants to be at the core of who we are and what we’re becoming.
Jesus tells us that ... “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him” (John 14:23 NKJV).
