Dailies- 2019

Dailies ~in His Word
March 13, 2019

Stop and look around you for a moment. Are you seeing what I see? God has placed you where you are and brought you through what He has brought you through to use you just where you are.
Each person mentioned in the Bible, the Word of God, has been used to further the kingdom, but that is not all.  Each person, good and bad that went through so much, even those who died as evil rotten scoundrels have helped us to become the people we are today just by reading about them.

Sometimes I think, I would love to write a book that influences people to change their lives, to better themselves. You know the kind of life altering story-line that makes you sit up and take notice of your own failures and goals. It makes you think twice about complaining and fills you up with gratitude for what God has done for you. Or maybe it spurs you on to do for others as you would have them do to you?

And just as you want men to do to you, you also do to them likewise. Luke 6:31

When He had said this, He showed them His hands and His side. Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord. So Jesus said to them again, “Peace to you! As the Father has sent Me, I also send you.” And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.” John 20:21-23
Just as with Jesus, coming to earth to die for our sins, He lived as a man for our sakes that we would live our lives for those who He would have us encourage following Him also.
Let’s look around us this week and take stock of whom we come in contact with and get to share the testimony of what God has done in our lives. Let draw near to Him and allow Him to speak through us via the Holy Spirit.

Heavenly Father, use our lives as an instrument of mercy and hope, in Jesus’ name, amen
