Glory Seed Devotionals, 2015: Year of Promise
Have you ever wondered why the Holy Spirit keeps bringing us back to certain bible passages from time to time? I do. This morning during my devotional time while reading “Grace for the Moment” by Max Lucado the reading for today ended with. “Run to Jesus. Jesus wants you to go to him. He wants to become the most important person in your life, the greatest love you’ll ever know. He wants you to love him so much that there’s no room in your heart and in your life for sin. Invite him to take up residence in your heart.” No sooner had I finished when I found myself reading, “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28, ESV)
As I write these words I am sitting in our living room wearing a heavy sweater because of a dead furnace and thanking God it’s not twenty below zero with a twenty mile hour north wind. I am not real cold it’s more of an inconvenience and frustrating than anything. It’s frustrating because it is supposed to be warm in here not chilly. There are times when life is like that, life like our house is supposed to be warm not chilly but there are days when life does get a little chilly (and sometimes darn-right cold).
Ever have one of those days when it seems like your source of heat is absent? I am sure you have and I am sure at one point while you were shivering you asked Jesus for help and he gave you the Holy Spirit to warm you up. Isn’t it wonderful Jesus knows what you need when you need and he’s always ready to tap you on the shoulder and say, “Remember ________________, and ___________________?”
If your life is a little chilly or darn-right cold right now remember Jesus is waiting for you to ask for help so he can send you the Holy Spirit who will warm you warmer than a cup of hot chocolate (with a marshmallow)!
BE strong in the LORD!
Grace and PEACE, Amen!
