Insight From Wonders In Focus

Job had heard many “answers” to the problem of his pain, but he wanted to hear from the Lord. When he did, God asked Job a series of questions that revealed His infinite superiority. And His questions pointed to the wonders of creation.

All creation points to God. A key way He speaks to us is through that creation. How refreshing to commune with our Lord as we enjoy His handiwork!

We Won’t Break – Our Daily Bread Devo

(saved from drafts and posting now)

We Won’t Break

That is the title of Our Daily Bread Devotional for today. I respond by saying, ‘Amen.’

Here is an excerpt from the reading:
After Jesus affirms that the greatest treasures are not earthly or temporary, He encourages us to release our anxious thoughts. The Creator and Sustainer of the universe loves and provides for His children, so we don’t have to waste our precious time worrying. God knows our needs and will care for us (Matthew 6:19–32).

Also, I encourage you all to read the devotional from March 1st-especially if you tend to worry about things Christians don’t need to worry about when we trust God. Before bed some thoughts came to my mind, and I had to purposefully remind myself to trust God and go to sleep! 😅

I give thanks to God because I woke up today and after a few seconds, I remembered what I wanted to get done this morning, then I got a burst of energy and hopped right out of bed!

This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it!

Love God

One of Many Favorite Bible Verses

1 Samuel 17:36 one ofmy favorite verses spoken by David. Why do I like this verse so much? I am not sure,  maybe it’s David’s confidence and how he felt so strongly to defend God’s name and work on behalf of the Lord God.

“Your servant has killed both lion and bear; and this uncircumcised Philistine will be like one of them, seeing he has defied the armies of the living God.”

I Samuel 17:36 NKJV

Yes, Going First

This thing of going first is risky at times.

It is going first with risk of what you give not being seen or accepted.

Going first comes with the risk of being vulnerable.

Going first is not easy for some of us.

It requires us to be, what some would say, mature.

Going first is loving first.

Pushing past the hurt of what another person said or did and still choosing to love them. Loving them because you and I, we know it is right and we know it is what Abba requires of us.

From experience I can admit that going first is certainly hard. I thought that the more I went first the easier it would become, but I’m finding out now that is not how it works. So now,  I consider my flesh dying. My flesh, the past of me that is selfish, that only thinks about myself, that cares little about others, that hates other people. Galatians chapter 5 gives a greater description of the flesh and also of the Holy spirit.

Todays devotional talks about going first, loving first. God, Abba, heavenly Father,  Jehovah loved His creation first. He loves us first at all times.

This morning I realized He loves me more than my fiancé does. I see that my fiancé loves me,  but by events I now see that my soon to be husbands love for me is not greater than God’s love for me. God’s love for me is something I can be content in and content with. It is a journey for me to say something like this, because I know how important it is to keep God first in my heart and by my actions.

When I have children, I will have to love them first.

After loving God and after loving my husband – as is taught by the Lord knows who, because I don’t know where or who it came from.
