Romans 14:12 So then each of us shall give account of himself to God.
Father, thank you for holding us accountable. For caring enough to pursue us with your love. For loving us enough Father to take time and provide comfort to provide a shoulder to cry and lean on in times of trouble. Thank you for wiping tears amid it all. Thank you, Father, for another glorious and righteous day Lord. May we see you in all we do and our walk and talk be pleasing to you. In Jesus name. Amen.
Maybe like me, you thought you had it all figured out. You thought you knew based upon what your parents told you and your friends were doing or saying, this is the way I should go. GO to school, get the job, marry, have kids, retire. Yet, but God. Only God had a different purposeful plan for your life. A plan to give you much more than that daily grind. He had a plan to enlarge and increase your territory beyond your wildest imagination. His all-encompassing love for you has wrapped itself so tightly around you that others are looking and wondering what has happened. Others are marveling at how you continue to go day by day with a smile on your face. Touching and agreeing and believing that, yes that is indeed the way. You yourself are amazed and astounded at the transformation power of who He is calling you to be in the land. Who he is cultivating you to be as he prepares you for His next. However, the joy that overwhelms you is real! So real that it is contagious to those that know you. It is contagious to those that want to get to know you more intimately. Yet, your relationship with God continues to hold you enthralled as a hostage because of His foundation of love. His love saints. God’s awesome and magnificent love. Stand in it, walk in it, run in it, jump in it, leap in it, His knowing love for you, His child, His son, His beloved daughter.
Father, we thank you Lord for your love. We praise you Father with all we have. We thank you for the accountability you place in and on us to do your will here in the land. We worship you and magnify you, Father. Thank you for holding us accountable for living a purposeful life. In Jesus name. Amen.
