Saturated

May God’s peace mark your day in every way.

May the Lord show you places in your life where you’ve let your guard down, let your thoughts wander, and let your peace slip away.

May Jesus help you shore up your life once again.

May you listen more closely to His voice and turn a deaf ear to the enemy.

May you refuse thoughts and indulgences that only weaken you.

Engage in all of the things that are good for your soul.

Jesus loves you and He wants what’s best for you.

Have a peace-saturated day today!

He Remembers His Children

O God, remember us and bless us,

bless the families of Israel and Aaron.

And let God bless all who fear God—

bless the small, bless the great.

Oh, let God enlarge your families—

giving growth to you, growth to your children.

May you be blessed by God,

by God, who made heaven and earth.

The heaven of heavens is for God,

but he put us in charge of the earth.

Psalm 115:19-21

This past weekend was Mother’s Day. I would like to say that I hope you had a beautiful day, whether you spent it with your mother or you are a mother. People who have been given the joyful experience of parenthood understand a love that is indescribable. It is unexplainable. It exists without conditions. If you have had grandchildren, you know it at a deeper level.

I used to think that I could love my children more than God loves me. I used to think I could forgive other people more than Jesus would forgive me.

However, there is no comparison. He is the creator of love, which is infinite and perfect.

It doesn’t matter how old we get. God still considers us his child. There is nothing we can do to make him love us more or less. There is nothing that we have done that causes him not to forgive us. He is love, and we are his. He sacrificed everything so that we might believe in the love he is and has for each one of us.

Thank you, Jesus, for loving us without conditions or expectations. We don’t have to impress you or provide something to receive what you offered at the cross. We praise you for your perfect love, one that stretches far and wide with no limits. In Jesus name, Amen.

Our Father’s Love

Have you ever limit the power of God? Do you ever wonder how much more he is ready to give you if only you were to ask?

Today, I was humbled and reminded of just how small I tend to make my heavenly Father. How do I live in the limitation of my gifts instead of the abundance and fullness of Christ? Where did I learn that my struggles or my sinful nature disassociate me from an ALL-KNOWING God, who loves me more than I can take in?

Jesus said, “If you then, evil (sinful by nature) as you are, know how to give good and advantageous gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven [perfect as he is] give what is good and advantageous to those who keep on asking him.” Matthew 7:11 Amp

If I love my children enough to bless them when I am able, even at the cost of disappointment, how could I not believe that my Father in heaven wouldn’t love me in the same way, but with more?

I hope that we all can see the truth about our Father’s love for us. He says to ask, and we will receive, seek and we will find, He waits for us to come to Him. He loves us that much.

Father, thank you for loving me despite my sinful nature. I have the desire to follow after you, to learn from you. However, sometimes I fail to remember how close you are. Forgive me when I doubt. Bless me with a deeper understanding of who you are and teach me about the abundant life you desire for me to have in you.

Baring His Beauty,

What Does The Job

There is potential in your hand that you are not even aware of.

Just like Moses in Exodus 4, Moses had a rod in his hand that he was unaware of the potential and power it carried.

Moses had to “throw it down” and obey God, in order to see what it could do.

At first he ran, frightened by it.

But once he realized the power it held and the honor that it was to know that God’s Rod is what did the job, and he got to handle it, that built his faith and courage to use it!

That is the same today with the Word Of God.

The Word is our Rod!

Nothing is more reliable in any situation than God’s Word.

Do you have a “Red Sea” that needs parting?

How about a “need” to spring forth from a rock?

Or maybe quite simply the “answer” to keeping your enemies at bay?

Whatever it is…..

Start “throwing down” and “lifting up” your Rod and see what God can do.

Remember …

it is God’s Rod That Does The Job!

Thank You, Heavenly Father for the privilege it is to carry “Your Rod” and to proclaim and release it over every situation that arises in my life and in the lives of others. Help me to have a reverential fear and awe that the power I have the privilege to carry and speak is not something to take lightly. Give me the boldness and belief that Your Word and Spirit is what started it all and it is what does the job. I just get to be the one to hold it and declare it so.

The Theory Of Everything

Pioneering Scientist Stephen Hawking passes away at age 75.

This is on my newsfeed today.

One of his most quotable quotes.

On humanity: “We are just an advanced breed of monkeys on a minor planet of a very average star. But we can understand the Universe. That makes us something very special” – Interview in Der Spiegel, October 1988

He was considered. a groundbreaking scientist.

Today he meets the Creator who can answer ALL his earth shattering questions and bring him up to turbo speed on where our intelligence comes from that what makes us ALL very special and unique. 

Mark 8:36

For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?”

This my friends could possibly explain the theory of everything. 

God, open the eyes of the seekers to see you, their ears to hear you, and their hearts to receive you. 

 In Jesus name,
