The Daily Breath of God
Friday, August 29 2014
To whom will you compare me? Or who is my equal?" says the Holy One. Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. Isaiah 40:25,28It is an amazing journey we are all on, when we think that the mention of God has to do with some kind of religion. As if he is some vague thought or hope, or even some kind of distant probability. In this condition we make up our own rules as to what we think is tolerable and fun. But what we experience even with our own rules is condemnation, guilt, irritations and a view of ourselves that is less than good. But the grace that is found is Jesus the Christ changes everything. God is not some kind of vague thought, hope or distant probability, he is the Lord and we know him instead of believing in the distant probability. In fact we discover his grace and experience his presence. We begin to enjoy him and are invited to call him Father. Here in his presence we find a love that overwhelms us with joy, patience, kindness, goodness and faithfulness. On this new day may his grace overwhelm you, so that you know afresh his love for you on this day. The one you call Father has no one to be compared to and if he had a refrigerator, your picture would be on it. So enjoy his love for you without condemnation. Delight yourself in him and the desires of your heart will be given to you for your joy and the blessing to others.
