MORNING PRAYERS, Friday, July 10, 2020 - WORD(S) OF THE DAY: WE SERVE AN AWESOME GOD
Father God, help me to show love and mercy toward others in the same way You show it to me. Amen
“For you, O Lord, are good and forgiving, abounding in steadfast love to all who call upon you.." Psalm 86:5
“Lord help me to love with open arms the way You love me.” Have you ever thought about how awesome and wonderful our God is in how He watches out for us, provides a way for us, and blesses us even when we are undeserving of it? He is what I call a "Nevertheless God." In spite of all the times when we have run off on our own doing it our way, when we find ourselves in that bad place and cry out, "Lord, Help," He's there. We are not always deserving of His help but nevertheless, because He is merciful and just, He's there. Think about the people who you have upset, hurt, or disappointed over your life. Some were forgiving and when you called, they were there. Others to this day still will not take your call, or they see you out and go in a different direction. They just cannot bring themselves to forgive you, no matter how much you apologize. The Israelites were constantly complaining and whining and just out of the will of God, but when they cried out for His help, He was there. That is the kind of God we serve.. His love is higher than any mountain and runs deeper than any valley. It's not a surface kind of love that is there depending on how He feels that day. No, He is all in, through thick and thin. I'm grateful for that. My prayer is, "Lord, help me to love my neighbor without conditions, the same way You love me."
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.." John 3:16
