Be encouraged in your purpose today. God has given you permission to shine in this world and to use the gifts He has given you to bring glory to His name and Kingdom.
Acknowledge the gifts you have been given and thank God for His everlasting and unconditional love towards you and ask Him for renewed strength and grace to keep pursuing His will for you everyday.
Remember, you are loved with an everlasting love by an everlasting God. With your hand in His you can do anything.
When someone who loves you goes to great lengths to give you a special gift, you show your love to them by treasuring that gift.
First you have to receive it, then you appreciate it, make use of it, you value it highly, and you are grateful for it. Show your love to God by taking delight and giving thanks for the gifts He has given you! Take delight in Jesus!
You can “love God back” by treasuring Jesus over absolutely everything else. First, we receive Him, meaning we take Him as our Saviour. We ask Him to forgive our sins and take charge of our life. We enter into a spiritual relationship with Him.
Through our devotion to our faith we seek to grow in appreciation of Him. This means recognizing how much you need Him, and how perfectly He loves you.
Without Jesus, we are lost. Only He has the wisdom to guide you in life. He is the only one who is truly worthy of our love and devotion. As Jesus takes hold of your heart, your love for Him grows and grows. And then your gratitude begins welling up in your heart for God. Everyday live your life, think your thoughts as Jesus asks you to and you will always be on track to showing God just how much you love Him.
