The Daily Breath of God
Thursday, December 22 2011
The LORD merely spoke, and the heavens were created. He breathed the word, and all the stars were born. He assigned the sea its boundaries and locked the oceans in vast reservoirs. Psalm 33:6,7 NLTWhen we were children, at least for most of us, our parents protected us, provided for us and cared for us. It was here we learned the beginnings of trust, hope and love. No matter how rich or poor we were, we never thought about it, we just relaxed through the day and when we went home from school or play, we knew that food, shelter and love would be there. Somewhere along the journey we learned about stress, anxiety and peer pressure, none of which we enjoy. The grace that is found in Jesus the Christ gives us the freedom to relax, enjoy and have expressions of thanksgiving, for we know the Lord is in the details. When we are living overwhelmed by grace, worry leaves the room as well as attitudes that are less than refreshing. Grace does much more than save us for heaven, it sets our heart and mind free to experience and enjoy the love of God through the details of our journey. On this new day that has never been, may you enjoy living right smack dab in the middle of his grace. You will enjoy the relaxing freedom of his presence; know the whisper of his voice and the joy of his salvation that calls you son or daughter. A smile is appropriate and your emotions and thoughts will be renewed.
