Bible reading today:

Jeremiah 49, Psalm 89: 1-18, Proverbs 11, Philippians 3 – 4.

Today’s scripture verse:

Matthew 11: 28-30 Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

Come to God with a teachable spirit, and be eager to learn, and to be changed.  Walking closely with God is a life of continual newness each, and every day.  We must let go of the old ways, and step into a new beginning with Christ Jesus.  Seek the face of God with an open mind, knowing that our journey with Him will involve being transformed by the renewing of our minds.

Romans 12:2, “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.”

We must focus our thoughts on God, and be aware that He is fully attentive to us that love and honor Him.  God sees us with a steady, steadfast view, His attention for us is infinite.  God knows and understands all about us, nothing is hid from Him.  His thoughts embrace each of us in everlasting love. 

Jerimiah 29:11, “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.”

We must give ourselves fully to this amazing adventure of increasing attentiveness from God.  Our joy of being in His loving care will be experienced with amazement while here in this place, but in the world to come this will be magnified to the infinite level, joy unspeakable and full of glory, as spoken in First Corinthians 2:9, “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.” Therefore rejoice in the fact that we are the children of God, the everlasting one, this world has no hold on us and the ruler of this place (Satan) has been defeated and awaits his eternal punishment.  Amen.
