One of our dearest friends has traveled across the ocean and flew nearly 30 hours to be in America. One of his plans is to visit with us and we are so glad. He brought some lovely gifts with him and blessed us with them last night. His presence is the greatest gift we have this week. What a blessing!
Oh beloved, did you know that God traveled across the universe to give you the greatest gift! His Son went to the cross and paid the price so that you could have unlimited, never ending fellowship with Him! And He did more than just save you. He came to give you magnificent gifts from His Kingdom as well! Everything you may lack has been filled up through Him. Through Christ you now have everything you will ever need and more! No good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly – that is those who have put their trust in Christ and follow Him with their whole heart! God sees your situation and He wants you to know this morning that He is greater than the situation. He is able to give you stamina and grace to stand for the duration. He won’t allow His beloved, and that is who you are, to lack or beg or worry or plead. He’s covered it all. And unlike our dear friend who had to travel all across the ocean to be here, God is within you – you will not fail!
God loves you and He’s for you! Run to His Word this morning and thank Him for the promises found from Genesis to Revelation. Thank Him for Holy Spirit indwelling that seals all the promises and thank Him for forgiveness He gives so rich and free! You aren’t done yet and you aren’t done in – because you are walking in the Light of the World – which is Jesus!
