But know that the LORD has set apart for Himself him who is godly; The LORD will hear when I call to Him. (Psalms 4:3 NKJV)
God is faithful to those who strive toward Godliness….sometimes, even when we are not so faithful. He loves us and finds ways to bless us! We can all learn a lot from a God like ours, the one and only true God.
Prayer- Lord, let me be faithful to appreciate you and your special treatment of us. Praise your Holy Name!
And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him. (1 John 4:16 KJV)
I am comforted in the presence of God. No matter what happens, I feel secure there!
Perhaps Billy Graham said it best:
God Loves You!
Never question God’s great love, for it is as unchangeable a part of God as is His holiness. Were it not for the love of God, none of us would ever have a chance in the future life. But God is love! And His love for us is everlasting.
The promises of God’s love and forgiveness are as real, as sure, as positive, as human words can make them. But, like describing the ocean, its total beauty cannot be understood until it is actually seen. It is the same with God’s love. Until you actually possess true peace with God, no one can describe its wonders to you.
Yes, almighty God, I have felt the consolation of Your love!
Long enough, GOD — you’ve ignored me long enough. I’ve looked at the back of your head long enough. Long enough I’ve carried this ton of trouble, lived with a stomach full of pain. Long enough my arrogant enemies have looked down their noses at me.
Take a good look at me, GOD, my God; I want to look life in the eye, So no enemy can get the best of me or laugh when I fall on my face.
I’ve thrown myself headlong into your arms— I’m celebrating your rescue. I’m singing at the top of my lungs, I’m so full of answered prayers. (Psalm 13:1-6 MSG)
I find myself feeling the way the Psalmist does in this passage on occasion. It is NOT appropriate for me to feel sorry for myself and to exhibit these negative thoughts. God has blessed me beyond anything I deserve! I have found that He is absolutely faithful…sometimes, even when I am not!
Prayer: LORD…Help me to keep my attitude
Right. Thank you for loving me and intervening in my life. I love you for that!
http://bible.com/1/php1.9-10 And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment; That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ;
http://bible.com/114/heb12.2 looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
Christ was more than happy to come to our spiritual rescue! He loves us!
http://bible.com/114/jhn13.34-35 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
Kindness is a virtue that is misunderstood. It should be of the heart and not just well-intentioned action.
If we love one another to the point where we demonstrate kindness, without thinking, without any conscious intention, then we are of the same nature as Christ! He loved us so much, He gave His life for us…freely!
The kindness that we have simply does not measure up.
