Father, as I look to You each day, may my eyes be opened to see the beauty all around me.
Cause me to view Your creation with wonder and amazement at Your creativity and generosity in providing it all for me.
Remind me that there is new life waiting to spring forth, both in the earth, as well as in my own soul.
I ask for my heart to be restored daily, that I will be able to be intimate with You, my Savior and my God.
I ask this in Your precious name, Jesus. Amen.
Today’s Bible verse: Micah 6:8 "He shewed thee, O man, what is good: and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?"
Today’s quote: Dr. Charles F. Stanley - "The Holy Spirit is our power source, He indwells every believer in Christ, transforming character, revealing truth, and enabling obedience to God. Our Creator wants us to know Him. Isn't that amazing? He invites us to enjoy an intimate relationship with Him. Every day we have the privilege of opening His Word and speaking with our loving God. He's waiting for you..." (Taken from p. 36 of IN TOUCH magazine, Daily Readings for Devoted Living / Nov. 2015).
Some thoughts today: It's up to us to explore the ability of the Holy Spirit to change us in our walk with God. When we're trapped in some habits, and find it's impossible to stop them, cry out to the Holy Spirit for His help. He will turn your ashes into beauty.
~ Are you going nowhere? accomplishing nothing? God can use an unlikely person to minister to you with God's words of direction, as most likely they'll have "been there, done that," and have gotten the victory.
~ If you visit a church where folks are praising God in the heavenly languages, stick around, as God will show you what is taking place. When eternity invades your heart, nothing else will satisfy you.
