He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ.” Philippians 1:6
God created us. He knows our strengths and weakness. He’s able to see what we can't see in ourselves. He sees through the layers of our sin. And He cares for the hearts that have been humbled for Him. He has a plan to help us remember we are worthy of forgiveness and capable of nurturing His love.
It’s hard to imagine the depth of God’s love... How can He love through the shame of our sin? We must remember none of us are deserving of His love. But we have been given the gift of His GRACE. We have all had failures in our lives and felt unworthy. But God sees through the weakness. He opens our hearts for Jesus and reminds us why we must faithfully TRUST.
No matter where we have been, God invites us to come before His presence and receive what He provides. We must never underestimate the power of the Father! He has given us the ability to recognize how very much we are loved.
We are a work in progress! God is preparing us for great things! He knows where we are going and He knows where we have been. He WILL lift us high so we can see glimpses of His glory and see how He’s working for the good. God will use us to do amazing things. He will show us how to serve Him with a grateful heart of praise and He really WILL restore us.
Dear God, Thank you for Your loving presence. You speak Your truth and allow us to hear what will heal us. Thank you for seeing through the layers of our lives and removing the shame of our pain. We know why we need the power of Your greatness. Cover us with Your precious love and help us remember; we ARE deserving of mercy and grace. Thank you, Lord. You humble our hearts to BELIEVE what it means to be grateful. Amen
