💚 Daily Verse: All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ. Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure. So we praise God for the glorious grace he has poured out on us who belong to his dear Son.
☆ Ephesians 1:3-6 NLT
❤ Let's Talk About It: I just love this last excerpt from our Love of God devotions this month. It has been amazing filling up on God's love and I just think it's beautiful that this last scripture both begins and ends in a call for praise.
There is none more worthy than God for our praise; not shows, movies, actors, athletes, no one compares to our God.
The paradox of our faith is that we must choose salvation, however Paul clearly states that before we were ever given the opportunity to choose to accept the Gospel message of Christ, God chose us.
Let that sink in...
GOD CHOSE YOU, FRIEND! With all our faults and natural tendencies and inclinations, God would still choose to use people like you and I to exact His plan.
If thats doesn't get you excited, you may want to check yourself for a pulse.😉
Let's end our study of God's love with praise for who He is.
God is love!
🧡 Prayer: Dear God, you alone deserve my praise and worship. Lord, forgive me if I have ever placed an idol over you. Seek them out and show them to me, if I have any idols in my life. Thank you, Holy Spirit for revealing these things to me so that I may correct myself and seek to live a holy life. Lord, there is none like you. I am in awe of your magnificence and mighty power. Thank you for choosing me. I am nothing without you and grateful for your unfailing love and unending mercy. I pray Your will be done, Father, on earth as it is in Heaven. I love you Jesus and in your name I pray, amen.
