Grandchildren are being born to friends and acquaintances pretty often these days. What a gift! I’ve never known anyone who wasn’t thoroughly besotted with these little lumps of love. We could not have known what that would be like until the gift was handed to our children who in turn allow us to share that precious gift. I will always be so thankful for the five grandchildren I have so far. And I will never turn down another gift should one come along in the future.
Oh beloved, God wants you to know that this day is a gift from Him. You might have been dreading the alarm clock and you might have hoped the day would be delayed. Even so, this day is a gift! God has gifted this day to you because you have purpose and calling today. It is a day ordained for you. There are many other gifts God gives to you as well. The gift of forgiveness – you don’t have to forgive on your own ability. He gives forgiveness to you and you can share it with others as a precious gift. All the gifts of God are yours for the taking! Your destiny is not to live a less than poverty stricken spiritual life. At the cross Christ secured every spiritual blessing necessary for you to have a triumphant life. The gift of time alone with the Lord, the gift of prayer, the gift of wisdom, power and love. All these are so precious to the Lord and He willingly shares them with you. His Presence is such a gift. This gift is indwelling us as we are filled with His Holy Spirit. The gift of joy in the midst of heartache, peace in the midst of storms, love in the midst of rejection, power in the midst of weakness – amazing gifts of grace! No longer are you expected to make things happen for yourself – the anointing, appointing and calling are all gifts.
God loves you and He’s for you! It’s time to lay down the burden of feeling like God left you out in the gift giving department. It’s time to quit believing the lie that you aren’t worthy of His gifts. It’s time to loose the bonds of treachery that God forgot you in certain areas. You are breathing and your heart is beating because this day is a gift to live in the Light of His Glory and Grace!
Lamentations 3:22-23 It is because of the Lord’s lovingkindnesses that we are not consumed, because His [tender] compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great and beyond measure is Your faithfulness. AMP
Romans 5:16 And the result of God’s gracious gift is very different from the result of that one man’s sin. For Adam’s sin led to condemnation, but God’s free gift leads to our being made right with God, even though we are guilty of many sins.
James 1:17 Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow.
I Corinthians 1:7 Therefore you do not lack any spiritual gift as you eagerly wait for our Lord Jesus Christ to be revealed.
