Today Reminder – 05 May 2017

A reminder for today
Since we are receiving a Kingdom that is unshakable, let us be thankful and please God by worshiping him with holy fear and awe. For our God is a devouring fire. (Hebrews 12:28-29)

It is Friday and it is almost weekend. I listened to the testimony of Paul Young the author of “The Shack”. He speaks about grace of a day or rather grace for a day. He says that each day we should live in that day’s grace. We should embrace the grace we receive each day and live it to the fullest. The fact that I woke this morning is by grace and the love of God. We easily forget the amazing gift that we have called “life”. Jesus spoke about this in a sense in Matthew 6. "So don't worry about these things, saying, 'What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?' These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.
So don't worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today's trouble is enough for today.” 

Above all, we are receiving a kingdom that is unshakable in eternity with the Lord. So let us forget about the past and all our troubles and let us focus on God. God is a devouring fire and I must admit I love that verse. We are worshipping an awesome God and we must never forget whom He is. Paul says we must worship Him with holy fear and awe. When He says fear, he talks about God’s judgement over sin. The awe part is easy, because God leaves me in awe every day. The fear part is not so easy, because we are under constant attacks from the enemy and at days, it can be very slippery. However, fortunately, we have Jesus and He is our strength so that we can overcome these attacks. Jesus is our hope and our life, He is the way and in Him, we find shelter from darkness, as he becomes the light that guides us in the Holy Spirit. You are and will always remain in my prayers and I continue to ask God to strengthen you and keep you from stumbling. 

Lord, I pray that you lead us through this day and let us see your glory as we worship you. We are in awe of your wonder and we desire more of you and less of us. Fill us with your Holy Spirit and let us shine like the morning star. In Jesus name. 

Have an awesome day, dear friend of Jesus.
