Hi, dear family!!! Wherever you are in life, I want to encourage your heart that our Father’s sovereign rule as the God of the Universe is working His perfect, all loving, victorious plans for you and working good through all things we are experiencing together as a family!!! Everything is being worked out in His perfect timing and I love the words of the Psalmist who describes just one of the many things that He does for us every day with these words:
“To whom will you compare me?
Or who is my equal? says the Holy One.
Lift your eyes and look to the heavens:
Who created all these?
He who brings out the starry host one by one,
and calls them each by name.
Because of His great power and mighty strength,
not one of them is missing.”
This is the same God who became flesh in Jesus, was born into this world as our Savior, whom the Shepherds in the field and the wise men found by following the bright star He put into the sky, the same God that sustained the life and ministry of Jesus’ over the course of His life and made the way for His forever life seated next to Him on His throne in heaven! He is the same one who now lives in each one of our hearts through faith and is leading us individually through our journey through life here today! He has the power to control the stars and He has the power to direct us each in life with His Holy Spirit of light, through His written Word (the Bible) and His big ole’ heart of perfect unfailing love for us! He is not mocked, nor surprised, He is just gently guiding us all along with great Fatherly love as we look to Him with eyes of faith! Did you know that as you go through life helping others to know the Word of God that He says that we as His kids shine like the stars of the Universe?! He says He knows every star by name and not one of them is missing!!! His Word tells us He knows all things about us individually, too – even when we rise and when we sleep, even the hairs on our heads! Wow!!! He has good eyesight, don’t ya think?!!! Because of His love letter to us (the Bible) you can know you are special to our Father and He who began a good work in each of us is continuing it until the day of completion and then He will join us with great reward for all we have done for Him! Even now, each day is graced with His great love for us!!! Oh, our Father – He is the bright Star of all creation and so deserving of our admiration!!! Praise His name with me as we ponder His greatness together!! Here is a Christmas carol for us all to have a listen to here.
Today, our Father still leads wise men who seek Him. He always leads us in triumphal procession in Christ Jesus!!! Let’s us exalt His name together forever!!!
