I am at a place in my life where I must start making choices toward my future. Should I go to a local university? Should I travel across the country to attend a christian university? Should I take a break from school for a year? What sort of job would I like to pursue?
I can honestly say that I don’t know any of the answers to these questions, but God does. I have been looking to myself and to others in my life for answers and guidance, when my Father has been standing right beside me all along waiting to whisper the answers in my ear.
I encourage you today to make the important choices in your life with Jesus. He knows what is best for you and He knows what will bring you the utmost joy.
Jesus, I come to You for direction. The decisions I’m making right now are shaping such a crucial part of my life. I cling to Your guidance, Lord. The world offers all kinds of advice, but I look to Your voice and seek solely Your plan. Set my feet on the path that You have for me. I lift every decision weighing on me before Your throne. Lead me clearly that I might know exactly which way to go, for Your Spirit is not one of confusion but of peace.
Today, let Jesus be your Valentine. Tell Him how much you love Him, thank Him for all He has done for you, and allow Him to shower you with blessings and sweet intimacy.
You are worthy of it all. For from You are all things, and to You are all things. You deserve the glory.
Isn’t it crazy to think that EVERYTHING can be traced back to God? There are so many things I enjoy, but I rarely thank, acknowledge or give glory to the One who truly gave it to me. I even find myself praying for things like perseverance and focus to pass an exam, but later forget to give glory to God for His help.
Today, thank God for all He has placed in your life. Thank Him for blessing you with the job that paid for the computer or iPad you are reading this from. Thank Him for the opportunities that led you to meet the wonderful people in your life. All that you have belongs to God, give Him the glory!
When Enoch was 65, his son Methuselah was born. After the birth of Methuselah, Enoch lived another 300 years in close fellowship with God, and he had other sons and daughters. Enoch lived 365 years in all. He enjoyed a close relationship with God throughout his life. Then he suddenly disappeared because God took him.
- Genesis 5:21-24
Isn’t it so easy to just skim through the long assembly line of Adam’s descendants? I am so glad that I read about Enoch. Enoch spent his life in constant fellowship with God. Enoch knew what God truly longed for: companionship with His children. Enoch was so pleasing to God, He took him from the earth to spend eternity with Him. God allowed Enoch to skip the pain and suffering of death so that he could be even closer to Him. Wow, what a loving God we serve!
"You said You’d be there for me, but it seems whenever I needed You most, Your footprints I did not see."
"My precious child, I did what I promised to do -
When you see just one set of footprints, the opposite thing is true. While you were carrying everything else, It was then that I carried you.”
