The Daily Breath of God
Tuesday, September 25 2012
From his abundance we have all received one gracious blessing after another. For the law was given through Moses, but God’s unfailing love and faithfulness came through Jesus Christ. John 1:16, 17 NLTEveryone wants to find their worth along their journey through life. Even the thought of being loved gives emotions of being valued and in some sense important, all of which gives feelings of worth. Yet even here our sin nature brings heartache, complaining and at times a desire for something else. We see it all through daily life, with anger, immorality, divorce and unpleasant words of all kinds. Grace changes all things for it is the love of God given through Jesus Christ so that our worth is no longer found in ourselves but in the very nature of God. His love through his grace brings about a new nature within us that puts to rest the fight we have with ourselves. Today may you celebrate his grace and unfailing love for you by allowing yourself the freedom of rest with your emotions about you. You are dearly loved and living in that love is very freeing. In fact, his grace will give you emotions of joy, kindness and encouragement for yourself and for those you meet today.
