THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS


DAILY DEVOTIONS

HI!

A lady was notified at work that her daughter was very ill at school.
She needed to pick her daughter up; but first, she had to stop by the pharmacy and get some medicine.

She hurried to the pharmacy, and got the medicine.
But, in her excitement, she had locked the keys in her car!

She went back in the pharmacy to see if anyone could help.
The clerk handed her a coat-hanger, and said she might be able to open the car with it.

She went back out to the car, and was trying to get the door open.
But, in her frustration and nervousness, she couldn’t.
She prayed quickly, “Please, Lord, help me get this door open!”

Just then, a man wearing a skull cap drove into the parking lot on a loud motorcycle.
He asked, “May I help ya Ma’am?”

Though she answered, “Yes,” she was wondering, “Lord are you SURE this man will help?”

In a “jiffy,” the man had the door open!
She said, “Thank you so much, you are a very kind gentleman!”

He said, “Why, thank ya, Ma’am – I just got out of jail for auto theft.”

She said, “Thank you, Lord, for sending me a PROFESSIONAL!”

God can make the BEST out of the WORST!

God created all there is, and is the owner of all things, and people.
He is also the Orchestrator of all time and events.

Our Lord Jesus is appointed “Heir” of all things, and is the Ruler of all things.
Hebrews 1:1-3 says,
"1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,
2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;
3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;"

THE Agent of God's mercy and grace is Christ Jesus Himself.
Therefore, if we are "IN" Christ Jesus, having surrendered our lives to Him, He can supply all our need!

Quick prayers, based upon our need, are often our most sincere prayers.
And God answers them according to His mercy, and His "...riches in glory by Christ Jesus" (Philippians 4:19).

Let us remember to acknowledge God's active participation in every part of our everyday life.
May we realize that our Lord, Jesus has access to ALL things, and is certainly interested in supplying our needs.

And when you are facing the WORST, ask God to make it the BEST!

Love ya!
