But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully. 2 Corinthians 9:6 KJV https://bible.com/verse-of-the-day/2co.9.6/77051
God still loves us. Even if we haven’t accepted Him as our Savior yet, He still loves us. When we have finally accepted Him as our Savior and Lord…His love surrounds us and binds us to Him for eternity. That is how awesome our God is!
Even though we may not feel like being loved, God loves us. When we are depressed about something in our lives or we just wake up feeling down…God still loves us. Our feelings and our outlook on our lives don’t have any impact on His love toward us because He loved us long before we were even born.
Don’t think of your life as if it doesn’t have any meaning because I have those days too. Think about your life as if it was a new life every morning. God gives each of us another day to live and be useful to Him, so when you wake up thank Him for the day and whatever comes in that day. He may use your outlook on life to bring someone to know Jesus as their Savior, even if you don’t get a chance to witness to them. They may see His work in your life and decide that He is needed in their life as well.
who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: Colossians 1:13 KJV https://bible.com/verse-of-the-day/col.1.13/67114
God’s love for you began before He created anything. His love for you is everlasting and deeper than you will know until you are in His Presence. Many times it seems that we take His love for granted and all of His blessings and mercy too but He still pours them into our lives even when we don’t acknowledge them. Why do we act this way toward the One Who loves us most in all of creation? Because, even though we may belong to Him and claim Him as our Savior, we are still flawed human beings.
Your life is precious to God and He holds you in His hand because He knows what His plans are for you. He will never leave you or forsake you even if you forget about Him from time to time. Have you considered that He holds the entire universe together but He also knows how many hairs are on your head? I’m not speaking of one or two people, I am talking about every person on the planet! Even those who don’t know Him as their Savior. God is our Savior and our Redeemer and our Creator. Doesn’t He deserve to be praised and thanked for waking us up every morning?
Thank God for your day and for all of the blessings that you have because if you truly think about it…everything that you have is a gift and a blessing sent to you from God.
The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined. Isaiah 9:2 KJV https://bible.com/bible/1/isa.9.2.KJV
Therefore thus will I do unto thee, O Israel: and because I will do this unto thee, prepare to meet thy God, O Israel. For, lo, he that formeth the mountains, and createth the wind, and declareth unto man what is his thought, that maketh the morning darkness, and treadeth upon the high places of the earth, The LORD, The God of hosts, is his name. Amos 4:12-13 KJV https://bible.com/bible/1/amo.4.12-13.KJV
The Lord is coming soon. I pray that everyone who reads this blog will be ready when He does blow the Trumpet and call His Bride home.
Most of us wake up and just get up, if possible, and make coffee to start the day. We don’t wake up and thank God Who gave you the breath during the night to see this morning. We don’t thank God for the strength and the health that He gives us each day to do whatever we do. God gives each of us a number of days and years to live on this Earth and He gives us the strength to serve Him every day if we will live our lives doing that. So…why don’t we?
I wake up and try to remember to thank Him for allowing me to have one more day to serve Him. There are some days that I forget to thank Him but I usually get around to it before the day is too far gone. My point is that He gave His Son to pay the penalty for our sins so we could be useful and able to be His servants while we have the time to do so. Therefore, why can’t we thank Him every day for the blessings that will come on that day? The blessings may not be financial or healing but they could be a friend dropping by or the way your dog or cat makes you laugh. Some blessings aren’t easy to see but many times you will realize a blessing after it has happened and you will recognize it because it could only come from God.
Thank God for all of the little things and the big ones and your health and your family because you wouldn’t have them if it weren’t for His pleasure in giving them to you.
The LORD bless thee, and keep thee: The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace. Numbers 6:24-26 KJV https://bible.com/bible/1/num.6.24-26.KJV
Our lives are filled with times of pride and times of loss. Which one is worse or better doesn’t matter because our pride causes many problems in our lives because it is the chief sin from which all others spring. It was because of pride that Satan rebelled against God and was cast out. It was because of pride that Cain’s offering was rejected because he was showing what he had done and not offering a sacrifice to atone for his own sins.
It is pride that brings so many families to a point of splitting apart and it also causes many churches to split as well. There are many other problems in our world that are caused by pride and many times they become bigger than they should. But…what are we to do? Truly, we are supposed to “love the Lord with all of our heart, mind, soul and our strength and to love our neighbors as ourselves“. But do we really do this? Jesus was explaining the parable of the good Samaritan when He said this, so should we do this too?
We should but many times in our lives we don’t. God loves us deeply because He gave His Son for our sins so that we could come to Him whenever we needed Him. He already knows what we need but He does like to hear our prayers about those things anyway. We should pray to Him not only for the things that we need but also for just praising Him for His goodness and His love for us too. Make sure that you tell God how much He means to you because He does like to hear it. He knows your heart and more about you than you know yourself, but like any father, He still likes to hear from His children.
There may not be many more years until Jesus comes to take the church home so make sure that you know Him as your Savior…but most of all make sure that He knows you too!
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. James 1:17 KJV https://bible.com/verse-of-the-day/jas.1.17/58410
