Accept The Gift
"For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." Romans 6:23
There are a variety of reasons that we get up every day and make our way to work. For some it is because they love what they do, and they could not imagine doing anything else. For some it is the reward that they get in just helping someone along the way.
Seeing Great Things
“For your eyes have seen all the great work of the Lord that he did.” Deuteronomy 11:7 (ESV)
It does not take much thought on our part to see and to know that The Lord has done great things in our lives. When we compare how good we have been to how good The Lord has been to us we should be amazed at His grace, mercy, and kindness towards us. Many times we focus on those things that have not gone well, or those things that we are facing that seem insurmountable, and it can become difficult to get pass those thoughts and visions.
Praying Together Works
"Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven." Matthew 18:19 (ESV)
It becomes necessary at times to do some things alone, and that includes being alone with God. In our alone time with God He is able to talk to us and pour into from His storehouse of goodness and mercy. In our alone time with God He can give us the strength to do whatever it is He will have us to do. Then there are times when we need somebody we can pray with.
Always The Same
“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” Hebrews 13:8 (ESV)
We are living in an ever changing world. It seems that every day something is changing and we have to make the necessary adjustments to meet the changes that are happening around us. Some things change for the better and some for the worse, but each of us should realize that change will happen rather we like it or not.
