Good Morning!

Good Morning!

There is a brand new day out there that has never been used! A new day is just waiting for you to get out there and do something great with it!

A new day means a new start, a clean slate, yesterday is done! Today is fresh and new! Never start your new day with the busted up pieces of yesterday! God’s mercies are new every morning! A good idea is to start by praising and thanking God for His beautiful gift! Declare, “This is the day that the Lord has made. I will be glad in it!” Now just keep on making it known that you and God plan on making good use of the awesome opportunity of today!

Never start your new day with the busted up pieces of yesterday!

Too many folks miss today by living in the past, or consumed with the future. Today is when everything happens! Today is the day. Now is the time. Live today. Living the now is what makes you successful and not wasteful of the precious day you have right now! Sure you can learn from your yesterdays, and you can plan for your tomorrows, but it will take up some valuable space in your today, so use it wisely! The secret to a great new year, or life, is simply living life in Christ everyday! When you start your day with God, the walk goes the way it should and accomplishes what is good. You will still encounter life along the way. Defeats, disappointments, disapprovals, rejection, shame, sorrows, setbacks all pop up from time to time. You see, that is why you want to start each day reminding yourself who you are in Christ. The truth is: He is the helper that walks with you, the Spirit of Christ, or Holy Spirit, the Comforter, the One who never leaves you or forsakes you! That is why I walk with Him. He is the answer to all those forces that want to oppose me in my great day! In Him I am an overcomer, more than a conqueror, and full of power to do great things in His name.

Good Morning! God is crazy about you!

A new day in Him offers great experiences and expectations as we walk together. Today becomes more productive, because I learn to cast those cares on Him, because He cares for me (and takes care of me). Today as I walk with Him, we may preach the kingdom, heal the sick, cast out devils, even raise the dead, or we may just enjoy watching the kids play and hear the birds sing. When the day is done, I will thank Him for His gift and what we did with it. I will sleep well, get up, and start yet another exciting new day!

God Loves You!

Rom 8:31-39 God’s Everlasting Love

31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? 33 Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. 34 Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 As it is written:

“For Your sake we are killed all day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.” 

37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. 38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, 39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. NKJV

What a brilliant and powerful view these scriptures portray of God’s intentional love for us. If you are a believer, there are no more comforting words than these. Simply put, God loves you, and there is nothing you can do about it! God does not change, therefore, under no condition will these words not be true. Nothing, not even you, can change the way God loves you. He made you so that He could love you! He made you capable of loving Him back! But, He does not force you to do so.

Romans 5:8

But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. NKJV

What incredible Love! We cannot earn it, we do not deserve it. We can receive it, or reject it, but we can not be separated from it!

Psalms 139:14-16

 14 I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well. 15 My frame was not hidden from You, when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. 16 Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, The days fashioned for me, when as yet there were none of them. NKJV

It sounds a bit like God loves you and has a plan for your life! Oh, I think He said that!

Jeremiah 29:11-12

11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. NKJV

Why does God love you so much? Well, for one thing, you were made in His image! When you are born again, you are born from above. In short, you are His kid! There is a family resemblance that He likes! The other reason and the most important one is that it is His nature; it is who He is! It is not dependent upon you at all.

1 John 4:8 God is Love.

Love is not what God does! Love is who He is! And nothing can separate His love from you. Fortunately, there is nothing you can do about it! God loves you.
