Devotional ~ The Thief And Life

The enemy wants to destroy man. Jesus wants to bring abundant life to man. His love for us is more than we can ever imagine or begin to understand. He died for us! Even before we were born, Jesus took our sins upon His shoulders. The enemy comes to kill and destroy, Jesus came to bring life. Who do you want in your life?

Father, may we have ears to hear Your voice speaking to us, and eyes to see the truth before us. May we put our trust in You, and seek You daily. May we share with others Your love for them and honor and glorify You in all that we do. In Jesus name amen.

Devotional ~ His Wonderful Works

I have always had a fascination with clouds. There is something about looking to the sky and seeing the many different types of clouds that God fills the skies with and the array of colors that He splashes across His canvas. The background in the above photo is one of many photos that I’ve taken so that I can learn how to paint a sky. If you are going to learn, might as well learn from the Master. (At least that is how I see it for me. 😉 ) The way He splashes the colors across the sky, the many types of clouds that He paints, oh it is so amazing.

Imagine being on a mountain top watching a sunrise or a sunset, God’s Country that’s what I call it. It’s as though you can reach out and touch the sky. Touch His masterpiece. God’s works, where to begin? His love? His thoughts toward us? There are no words in man’s vocabulary that can begin to describe the depth of His love, of His thoughts toward us.

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

John 3:16

His thoughts definitely: More than can be numbered.

Father, I praise You and thank You for Your love toward us. You could have turned away from us. Instead You had planned for mankind’s failure. Thank You for the precious gift of life, that we don’t deserve, and yet You offer to us, through Your Son, Jesus. Thank You Jesus for teaching us obedience, teaching us how to love, by showing us how much You love the Father by honoring and obeying Him. May we follow in Your footsteps. In Jesus name amen.
