There is something special about a newborn and the innocence of a child that is a great blessing from The Lord. There is nothing like a smile of a little baby or the joy a child can bring to the most difficult situations just by their presence. We are God's children and He delights in us. We are so special and precious to God that He looks after us with His love. It is a wonderful thing to be a child of God, and being His child is blessing all in its self. Since we are God’s children no matter what happens in life God will take care of us. There is greatness in you that God Himself has placed in you. It doesn't make a difference what anybody says about you or to you there is greatness in you.
The Scripture reminds us that, you are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. I encourage you today as you go about your daily routine, and when things get a little hectic just remember there is greatness in you. God, who dwell in and walks with you, is greater than anything in the world that tries to come against you. Because you are a child of God, there is no doubt God has put greatness in you. You serve a great and awesome God, and He has given you the power to do great things. Be confident that God is on your side and doing great things in you. You never have to trust in yourself, but trust the greatness that The Lord has put in you.
When you get down on yourself just say to yourself," Greater is He that is in me, than anything or anybody else in the whole world, because God has made me special and I am confident, "It's My Year To Get My Thing From My God!"
Remind me Lord that greater is you that is in me, than anything in this whole world, and once I am reminded of that fact there is nothing that I cannot accomplish. Thank you for being in and with me always. In Jesus Name Amen.
