And God is able to make all grace [every favor and earthly blessing] come in abundance to you, so that you may always [under all circumstances, regardless of the need] have complete sufficiency in everything [being completely self-sufficient in Him], and have an abundance for every good work and act of charity. (2 Corinthians 9:8, AMP)
‘I have made it back from my vacation in Minnesota. It was so good to see my family and now it’s time for me to get back to writing. Unfortunately, I did not have the time I needed to create new devotionals for you this week. But I am working on a series that I think you will enjoy. I’m looking forward to starting this new series with you next Monday.
The series will be on the Greatest Commandment that has been given to us.
Jesus replied, ” ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ “
I am looking forward to exploring this passage of Scripture with you. I look forward to what God has for us in the upcoming study. I really want to dive in deep and find out what it means to love God with all my heart, soul, and mind. I encourage you to come with me on this journey. Let’s learn what has kept us from fully loving God! Let’s learn how to love God with all our heart, soul, and mind.
Through this upcoming study, I’m praying we get excited about the Lord. I’m praying that our thoughts about God are transformed. I’m praying our hearts will be tenderized and learn how to love God better. I’m praying that our lives will be changed as we study what it means to love God. May God do a new thing in us and may we become a conduit of His grace to all those we come in contact with.
Please take time to pray about this upcoming study. Ask God where you are holding back on your relationship with Him. Ask the Lord what needs to change in your life, so that you can fully love Him. May we take a look at our distractions and be willing to lay them down at the foot of the cross.
I will be taking time to study this week, so that I can start this series right. In the meantime, I will be posting some of my favorite devotionals over the last 4 years. I pray that you enjoy each one and that you are greatly encouraged by the Lord!
Dear Father God, please watch over my faithful readers. Please encourage them daily! May they place their hope in You and may You renew their strength. Please make it possible for them to soar on wings like eagles this week. May they run and not grow weary, may they walk and not be faint (Isaiah 40:31). Oh Lord, please refresh each one in Your special way and may they be used by You this week. May they be a conduit through which Your grace freely flows! And may the light of Your Son’s sacrifice shine brightly through their words and their actions! In Jesus name, Amen!
Longing to be a Conduit of God’s Grace,
