We’ve been discussing the season of preparation. What things we should and shouldn’t do as we get ready for God’s use. Going through the book Thirty Days of Devotion, we’ve discovered that we should revere God, and we shouldn’t hold onto fear – worry, panic, or dread – and we shouldn’t hold up personal agendas, politics, or social issues as important as God, Himself, and our relationships with Him.
Today’s article is about the most important thing we need to realize and concentrate upon as we prepare for whatever lies ahead. One of the essential truths that we need to nail into the wall and focus on.
Oh, how He loves us!
Oh, how He carries us!
Oh, how He blesses us!
Delights in us! Like the daddy of a toddler taking first steps, our Heavenly Abba opens His hands to us. Our attempts and desire for Him spreads a smile across His face.
And I have to tell you, as I’m reading through this article (for maybe the 8th or 9th time!) tears are running down my face again as I remember the stories I shared.
Oh, my friend, your Father loves you! Never doubt that. No matter how you’re hurting, or have let Him down, or what you’re facing. He adores you! When you feel His silence you still hold His interest and enjoy His presence! And He shows you His love in the details of your daily day.
Your turn: Have you noticed? Have you seen such details as only our amazing God can offer. Can you tell us about them?
Even if you don’t feel comfortable chiming in your thoughts, please let me know you’re joining us for our 30-day challenge and I’ll add you to my prayer list. I hope the Lord has blessed you so far!
Tomorrow marks our halfway point. We will be completing our 15th devotion, analyzing the article entitled, “Beauty from Ashes” from the book, Thirty Days of Devotion. It’s available for only 99¢ from Amazon, so I hope you’ll pick up your copy and join us for the second half of the month.
