New day greetings, precious family!!! It is a day filled with too many blessings to count for us, but certainly because we are blessed by our Lord, it is good to reflect upon thanksgiving and give thanks to Jesus from whom all blessings flow!!! He is everything that is right, good, wise, love and powerful and He lives in us through our faith in His sacrifice on the cross that has rescued us as His children from the wages of sin brought upon us by the enemy of this world – Satan!!! Have you been rescued by Jesus as your Savior??? If not, just pray and talk to Him like a friend and tell Him you recognize your need to be rescued from sin’s wages because everybody falls short of living perfect as He is perfect!!! That is our ticket to heaven and forever life in the presence of the King of Glory when this life is done!!! Wooohooo!!! How blessed are we and how awesome that through faith we have His powerful Spirit living in our hearts to lead us and empower us to live a new life in Him – no longer slaves to sin, but empowered to walk in newness of life in Him!!! Much better, thank you Jesus!!! 🙂
Given new life, each one of us as our Father’s kids have a life story to tell – one of our old life and how we came to have new life and what a difference that makes in our lives!!! That story is powerful to making a difference in the lives of others around us wherever we are!!! Do you know what your story is??? It is good to ponder it in a manner that we can explain it to others because not only does it equip us to help others, but the Apostle Paul says this about it:
“I always thank my God as I remember you in my prayers, because I hear about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints. I pray that you may be active in sharing your faith, so that you will have a full understanding of every good thing we have in Christ.”
Not only does our sharing of our faith help others, but it gives to us an understanding of every good thing we have Christ!!! It blesses us to remember what Christ has done for us and helps us understand the blessing of our new life from what our old lives of living in the old sinful nature were like!!! It also inspires us to continue to look to Christ to transform us and continue to grow us in good ways!!! Through our faith, Jesus sees us as holy, without accusation and without blemish and in Him there is no condemnation!!! It is good to remember this and share that!!! Doing so, blessed the Apostle Paul as he wrote:
“Your love has give me great joy and encouragement, because you, brother, have refreshed the hearts of the saints.”
Philemon 1:4-7 NIV
Reminding each other in life of the blessings we have in Christ through our life stories shared is refreshing news in the world today!!! How has our Father worked in your life that you can share to encourage someone around you today, dear one??? In what way do you desire the help of Jesus to write your story ongoing???
This is His promise to us:
“For I know the plans that I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. …you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”
Jeremiah 29:11-13 NIV
Taking the time in life to ponder before the Lord and ask Him about how to tell our past story and how to write our future story is a good focus to reflect on!!! Seeking Jesus in it, invites the divine revelation for our continued legacy of making a difference in carrying out our purpose in life!!! What legacy does He have for you, beloved of His??? Where is He leading you??? Oh, it’s gonna be an exciting divine adventure where He leads and that just gets me all excited about every step of life ahead!!! Going for Jesus and sharing Him through my life as I go for however Father can use it to bless others is what I love to do!!! Glad we get to journey life together with Him!!! That just refreshes my heart always and makes me smile!!! Love to you wherever you are today!!! Seek and tell your divine story God has written and will continue to write upon your life as it is valuable as this song says here!!!
