Intense Devotion...


I forgot to post today! Sorry, it was a true day of rest.

I did just read something wonderful in Isaiah 9:7 "the Lord's intense devotion for His people will accomplish this." The passage is referring to His devotion to His people Israel and the promises He made them (but we were grafted in when Christ came to save us all). The accomplishing of "this" is His ultimate rule and reign over all peoples, nations, and tongues(Daniel 7:14). The part that stuck me was the word "intense". The Lord is intensely in love with his people and desires to see the fulfillment of His will for all humanity. Be encouraged that when you feel like life may be monotonous, meaningless or without is not! The creator of all things has intense devotion for His children and will accomplish His plan to have all earthly things under His rule and authority.

SO WHAT? If God can manage the redemption of man and the destruction of all evil, He can help you in sorting out the light and momentary trials we face today.

2Corinthians 4:17-18 For our momentary, light suffering is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison because we are not looking at what can be seen but at what cannot be seen. For what can be seen is temporary, but what cannot be seen is eternal.

For His Glory,

Like a student with a project due, I find the size of the Bible overwhelming & I never know where to begin but your insights into small parts of the bible are really helpful to me. It's like a big inspirational OH! to start or end of my day. Keep doing what you're doing because people are benefitting.
