Greetings to you in the wonderful name of Jesus Christ – THE Risen Saviour! What a lovely winter’s morning, obviously it is a day that was designed and created by the Lord for us to experience and enjoy and give energetic thanksgiving for. Today I will be praying for you, asking Father God to manifest himself to you as – the lifter of your head, your strong and mighty tower, your tender shepherd, your refuge, your living water, your bread of life … whatever you personally need to make it through the day.
On this day I choose to accept two promises from Scripture. First, “For the Lord is a sun and a shield; the Lord bestows favour and honour; no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless.” – Psalm 84:11 and “His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.” 2 Peter 1:3.
It seems that on this Thursday morning I needed to remind myself and in the process that God doesn’t hold out on us and that He has given us everything we need for life…and I think he constantly updates that supply list according to our ever-changing life circumstances. This morning I need to remember that there is healing available for body, soul, spirit, and thoughts. There forgiveness is there for us today to experience for ourselves and to pass on. There is a cleansing available for the stains of guilt and shame and fear and doubt. There is ‘living hope’ in abundance being provided. There is, also, a generous supply of divine favour to give out.
I suppose I could go on to prove my point but whatever I need…and whatever you need today – He has already made it available to us through Jesus Christ…delivered to me and you through a cross. It is this truth that keeps me focused, that gives me expectancy, and that gives purpose in each day.
Just a little something to ponder…may you be blessed!
