“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God” (Ephesians 2:8)
In the summer of 1990, I married a United States citizen and came to live in the United States. However, I discovered quickly that life here is totally different from life in the Philippines.
One of my adjustments was to receiving enormous amounts of mail. This “junk mail” fascinated me. A common eye-catcher was notices including the word FREE. Offers of free things were made in television advertisements and other mass media, too. But I found that these gifts all have one common characteristic: they are cheap, token items.
However, there is one free thing I know that is not cheap. It is our salvation in and through God. It is free, but it is not cheap because the blood and sacrifice of Jesus Christ purchased our salvation. God’s salvation is free to all people, regardless of race, age, background, culture, or language. Whoever we are, God’s salvation is available to each of us.
Loving God, thank you for the salvation you give us. Help us to be living testimonies of your grace to others. Amen.
When you understand that life is a test, you realize that nothing is insignificant in your life.
If God called us to a task, He will then qualify us for the job.
“He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?” (Micah 6:8)
I had not seen her in 40 years, since eighth grade. During the class reunion I took her aside. “In grade school,” I told her when we were alone, “we were not very kind to you. I need to ask your forgiveness for the part I played in treating you so unfairly.” “I have always wondered what I did wrong,” she said. “It has affected me emotionally since then.” “I’m sorry,” I repeated. “I can’t erase what was done, but you have been on my mind for many years. I have needed to ask your forgiveness.”
Thoughtless words spoken by children had affected her sense of self over the years. I will never forget the look in her eyes as we talked. I don’t believe that I actively treated her unfairly, but I did nothing to stop the unfriendly treatment. I find myself thinking of her when I witness injustices today. If I stand by and do nothing to stop the wrong, I am a participant.
The prophet Micah told us to act justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with God. In fact, if I do not act justly and love mercy, how can I even bear to be in God’s presence?
O God, move us to act and speak for justice and compassion. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
“God never said that the journey would be easy, but He did say that the arrival would be worthwhile”
“For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.” (Matthew 7:8)
Who do you look for when you need help, when you need the answer to an important question? Do you ask God first?
In 1 Chronicles 14:10, King David did ask God first. In view of the attack of Philistine warriors, he could have supposed God would command them to fight them, but to take out the guesswork of the situation, he asked: “Shall I go up against the Philistines?” And the Lord told him: “Go up; for I will deliver them into thine hand.”
In the face of a difficult situation, we could leave room to doubt and get carried away with speculations, trying to find solutions on our own. However, we shouldn’t forget that sooner or later, we’ll need to come to God and find the light at the end of the tunnel, the light that will bring us the peace and safety He promises to His children.
If you’re overcome with doubt, come before the Lord and discover what exactly what He wants you to do. Don’t make decisions on your own and then ask God to bless your plans. Come before Him and tell him: “Lord, what are your plans for me?” your plans are already blessed, and if you follow them through, victory is guaranteed.
Lord, make me humble so I can come before you and listen carefully, so I can know what you expect from me in any circumstance. Help me trust, not in my own judgment, but in Your wisdom, mercy and love; help me trust Your will for me. Amen
He who kneels before God can stand before anyone
Nobody is too broken for the grace of Jesus
“In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you” (1 Thessalonians 5:18)
We can be more successful and truly find God’s peace if we center each day on the hope of the Lord and the blessings the Lord provides in our lives: our health, the love of our family and friends, our home, our gifts, a simple hike, or a favorite sporting event. It is difficult not to feel the joy when we focus on our blessings. Take some time today to do that.
The Lord has blessed us, so let’s rejoice and be happy.
Dear Lord, thank you for the blessings in my life, especially the ones I often overlook. Help me focus on your blessings and be glad in them. Amen.
“Nothing can stop God’s plan for your life” (Isaiah 14:27)
