Your daily goal:
Philippians 3:14 “I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.”
(Monday-Friday, from my morning quiet time, I will write a short thought for that day which I pray God will use to motivate you to ‘GO’ for that day. Your objective is simple…to GO…to GO OUT and share the love of Christ with someone in that day….to GO and bear fruit …to be light to the world.)
Today’s Daily Light
God Not Only ‘Created’ It All….He ‘Sustains’ It All
Genesis 1:1 NIV “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
Hebrews 1:1-3 NIV “In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he made the universe. The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word.”
Colossians 1:13-17 NIV “He (Jesus) is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.”
Hebrews 12:2 NIV “Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith.”
So…here we are…and in our faith in understanding of God’s sovereignty and activity in our life…..we sometimes are like the little kid standing beside the ocean with his little bucket and asking if there is enough water in the ocean to fill his bucket…
Our Great God, who can create the universe, our planet, and you and me…who not only creates but ‘sustains’….who holds all things together by the word of His power. He created ‘all’…including ‘us’, with a total plan in mind…and He is active and involved not only in every little piece of the material universe…He is active and involved in every miniscule piece of our lives.
Father…I ask you..today…at this moment……to manifest the sweetness and assurance of Your steadfast and powerful presence in our hearts and minds…let us feel and know what we have in YOU…that you are creator and sustainer of life. And I pray that when life blows up around us and things seem scary and dark and life reaches out and takes our breath away…that we know that you are our sustainer…you alone are our source and supply. And no matter what befalls us…we are eternally safe in you. You hold the keys over the good, bad, and the ugly…You alone hold the power over life…You who creates and sustains ‘all’ things….we trust you in ‘all’ situations’. You are sovereign and your plan is perfect. We trust YOU as author and finisher of our faith….to perfect us according to YOUR great plan. Amen
