Moved By His Love

Moved By His Love

2 Corinthians 5:14 The Message

Christ’s love has moved me to such extremes. His love has the first and
last word in everything we do.

How has God’s love changed your behavior? The longer we follow Him and the
closer we walk with Him, the more we change.

He reveals areas in our lives that hold us back and are hurtful to others.
The change always brings greater freedom.

When we allow Him to lead us, we will begin to curb angry responses, be
kinder, more tolerant of others, love more, and serve in a greater
capacity. The changes will benefit our lives and relationships in powerful
ways.

Father, lead me in Your love. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

God Will Clothe You

God Will Clothe You

Matthew 6:30 New King James

Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow
is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little
faith?

God will look after your needs; He will clothe you. He knows exactly what
you need. We need different clothes in the different seasons, but I believe
God provides more than material clothing.

In a battle, we need armor, in a boxing ring we need gloves, and in this
life, we need different things at different times.

Perhaps, in this season of life, you need wisdom or patience. Maybe you
need peace or the ability to understand. Whatever it is you need, God will
provide.

Ask Him. Expect Him to provide – not in a haughty, “You owe me” mentality.
Have an expectation of faith.

Father, I will trust You to clothe me in the appropriate apparel I need. In
Jesus’ name. Amen.

Experience the Kingdom of God

Experience the Kingdom of God

John 3:3 Amplified Bible

Jesus answered him, I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, that unless a
person is born again (anew, from above), he cannot ever see (know, be
acquainted with, and experience) the kingdom of God.

People often think about Heaven when the kingdom of God is mentioned, but
the kingdom of God is far more than just Heaven.

True believers are born again – spiritually alive in Christ. We live in a
natural world, but we are supernatural beings.

God’s ways are very different than the world’s ways. The best way to
understand His way is to see through your spiritual eyes. See what God
sees. Think how He thinks. If this seems difficult, ask for His help.

The more you see and think in the spirit, the easier it gets.

Father, I want to see and think like You. Help me to live more in the
spirit. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Will You Answer The Call?

Will You Answer The Call?

Isaiah 6:8 New King James

Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: “Whom shall I send, and who
will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.”

If God wants to send you, will you go? If He wants you to speak, will you
speak? What if He wants you to do something? Will you do it?

Most believers want to please God, yet some don’t listen. Are you afraid of
what God wants to tell you? Some are. Don’t be afraid. Trust Him and know
that He won’t lead you astray.

Follow His leading. Listen to what He says and do what you know to do as
you wait upon further instruction.

Father, I will do what you want me to do. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
