Glory Seed Devotional’s, 2017: Anticipating and Experiencing God…
God’s Greatest Miracle…
“Because of the privilege and authority God has given me, I give each of you this warning: Don’t think you are better than you really are. Be honest in your evaluation of yourselves, measuring yourselves by the faith God has given us.” (Romans 12:3 NLT)
The Apostle Paul cautions us not to think of ourselves more important than we should think but, on the other hand we should not think of ourselves more unimportant than we should.
When we allow ourselves or we allow others to make us feel unimportant we begin a 3D downhill slide of depression, despair, and disappointment. Unimportance is one of the most powerful forces we face in our daily lives coming from a variety of sources – employers, co-workers, people with whom we share the roadways with, families, our failures, health issues, careers.
I remember while at a Navy facility in Philadelphia of seeing a poster that went something like this: “If you want to see how important you are then stick your hand in a bucket of water and the space left when you pull it out is how important you are.” Wow! I thought (then) how profound. Today however, I think how stupid! Because there are people in my life who are no longer here that had they not been in my life I would have turned out very differently! In fact my parents are so important I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for them.
Here is the most important life/living factor in our lives. God felt us so important he sent is Son into our lives to save us from self-destruction. If you think about the delicate balances in our world and universe you can see there needs to be a delicate balance between importance and un-importance in our lives. Today in your communications with God ask him to help you discover the proper balance of importance and un-importance then ask him to help you achieve that balance.
Individually and corporately WE ARE God’s Greatest Miracles!
“May God be merciful and bless us. May his face smile with favor on us.” **
Grace and PEACE,
