And again, “I will put my trust in him.” And again he says, “Here am I, and the children God has given me.” Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might break the power of him who holds the power of death—that is, the devil—and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death.
We can live in fear and doubt, or walk in strength and courage. We can run scared and hide from the demons that chase us, or face them down and say, “You are nothing, mean nothing, and have no power over me”.
We can say we want to be more like Jesus, or each day we can work and strive to be more like him in thought, action, and deed.
Amazingly God loves us either way, He still loves us when we waver, when we get scared, and when we run and hide. Lovingly He waits for us as our patient and nurturing Father-Mother. God is awesome. He is good. He is life, truth, love and is the Father of all mankind, and creator of all life. Thank Him today for your blessings, and then go be a blessing to others. I love you all.
Father, Your son Jesus was sent by You to show us the way to You, to salvation, to eternal peace, love, joy, and happiness. Jesus is the wayshower to the truth that we are spiritual beings in Your likeness here to have a human experiences to prove that we are worthy of bigger and better responsibilities in Your Kingdom— and that within You there is no such thing as sin, sickness, disease, or death.
I want to forgive to be forgiven, love to be loved, respect to be respected, show grace and mercy to receive them both, and be led so that I may lead. I know that daily You lead, forgive, love, and respect me— and each day You show me grace and mercy, even when I know that I don’t deserve it, or struggle with accepting it. Help me Father to give freely to others what You give freely to me.
I look for Your beacon of light and I promise to follow obediently the path You place before me. Even if I sidestep from time-to-time, I will realign. Humbly I say thank You. I love You. Amen.
