His Love

TODAY’S VERSE

“So if you sinful people know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good gifts to those who ask him.”
Matthew 7:11 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Sometimes I get it all backwards. I come to God and ask for something. Then for whatever reason, I have it in my head that I am unworthy of God’s graciousness that I end up doubting whether God would want to do anything good for me. However when I read this passage I realize it’s not about me! It’s about God. God is love and it is His love for me, not my worthiness, that needs to be my focus. And why not, even fathers who fail know what they should have done. And so we try, and as imperfect as we are, we know how to give gifts to our children. Jesus used this as His illustration pointing out that if we, in all of our limitations and sinfulness, know how to do good to our children, how much more will our heavenly Father give good gifts to those who ask Him? God loves you. He loves me and desires to give us what we need. All He wants us to do is ask. Today, rejoice in your heavenly Father’s love for you.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, I thank You for Your love. Forgive me when I let insecurities and lies lead me to a place of unbelief. Help me focus on Your love and rest in the fact that You feel I am intrinsically lovable. Thank You, my dear Father, for Your love.
AMEN

About Ronald

I am a Christian who deeply believes in God and the purposes He has put us on earth for. I started in ministry when I was 20 years old. I have been involved in both evangelism and compassion ministires. I deeply believe in our mission to help those in need. I believe however,that the church has missed our calling. We have not been effective in loving others as we would love ourselves. We have not been using our Spiritual Gifts to make a difference in this world. We have not mobilized to be the salt and light in the world. The goal of this web site is to help those interested to use their Spiritual Gifts in order to fulfill the mission Christ has given us to love the world.
