Response to His Love

Some ideas are given in today’s devotional of ways to respond to God’s love. Also, receive the positive affirmation from the song “Love Lifted Me” by Alan Jackson.

This Day With God - A Spiritual Journey

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these. – Mark 12:30-31

The post “Everlasting Love” is about the song written by Moses to remind the people of all the blessings they receive when they praise the ONE true God but are cursed when they worship idols. God’s everlasting love nurtures, extends a hand, and keeps us going in a positive direction.

Some ideas for responding to God’s love are to take in the lessons of His Word, share them with others, and worship with songs like Love Lifted Me by Alan Jackson. Our mood is always lifted to new heights by the positive affirmation God gives us through His Son.

Next Leg of the Relay Team

When you read the Bible, you discover what faith is and then it has an opportunity to grow. Then as you do something for the glory of God by faith, in the words of Billy Graham you start turning the world upside down because your heart is right side up.

Step Ahead

Our faith initiates
 Action toward
 Accomplishment 
 With help from the Lord 
 
 
 There is peace in the Lord
 Knowing we belong
 On the relay team
 And nothing can go wrong
 
 
 Freed from what entangles
 To run with endurance
 Our leg of the race
 To make a difference
 
 
 Working to build  
 Our faith stronger 
 And stronger to run 
 Longer and longer
 
 
 To be recorded
 Generations to come
 Running the good race
 Until it is won

The Plan to Be Blessed Again

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. – Proverbs 3:5-6

The post “Remnant” explains that even during the judgment of Israel, God limited the power of other nations over them. They had been disobedient but He preserves a remnant because the ultimate plan was to bless Israel again so they could rise up to be the great nation it was intended to be.

It’s the same for each of us as individual. We all have days or even longer periods of time when things seem to destroy what we have worked so hard for. We feel as though bad things are happening and it’s not always our fault but because the world is a broken place.

We must constantly remember that it is in trusting God that we gain the wisdom to know how to handle these feelings and what to do next. We must continue to have faith in the Lord who has the power to do it, the strength to keep us going, the peace to help us remain calm, and the joy that pulls us toward our eternal destination.

Trusting in God’s plan for Us is an attribute of the Christian soul that is fed with good thoughts and affirmation from songs like “Who You Are To Me” by Chris Tomlin featuring Lady A. Who is God to you? Is He with you throughout your day? Is He in a piece of art, a sunset, in the eye of a child, or perhaps in a song!
