A Glory Seed Devotional
Need a miracle? Find a mirror…
“Pay attention to this, Job. Stop and consider the wonderful miracles of God!” (Job 37:14 NLT)
If you are a reader of my devotionals then you have read on more than one occasion you are God’s greatest miracle. However, there are times when we feel nothing like a miracle. There are times when we think only a miracle can help us out. The truth is everyday of our lives the miracle of life surrounds us even if we feel abandoned. I believe the first 12 verses of Psalms 139 express this better than I can.
“O LORD, You have examined my heart and know everything about me. You know when I sit down or stand up. You know my thoughts even when I'm far away. You see me when I travel and when I rest at home. You know everything I do. You know what I am going to say even before I say it, LORD. You go before me and follow me. You place Your hand of blessing on my head. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too great for me to understand! I can never escape from Your Spirit! I can never get away from Your presence! If I go up to heaven, You are there; if I go down to the grave, You are there. If I ride the wings of the morning, if I dwell by the farthest oceans, even there Your hand will guide me, and Your strength will support me. I could ask the darkness to hide me and the light around me to become night—but even in darkness I cannot hide from You. To You the night shines as bright as day. Darkness and light are the same to You.” (Psalms 139:1-12 NLT)
The greatest miracle is God still loves us, still guides us, still strengthens us, and gives light to our life in spite of the fact that he has examined our heart and knows everything about us. God loves us just the way we are but he’s not satisfied with the way we are he wants to lead us into perfection.
Grace and PEACE!
He has saved me from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling.
And so I walk in the LORD's presence as I live here on earth!
(Psalms 116:8-9 NLT)
