2 Corinthians 1:3-4 “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.” (NIV)

Child – You are blessed to be a blessing; comforted to be a comforter; loved to be a lover.

My character and fruit are given to you by my Spirit within you. These enable you to be my heart, mouth, hands and feet to those in your path. I have given you eyes to see needs in their lives. Pray and lift up their burdens to Me. I am the only One who can relieve them, change them, or make them bearable for the appointed time.

You are my channel of love and presence to those who know Me, but also to those who don’t know they need Me yet. Yield yourself to Me each day as a living sacrifice. That is your part. Mine is to fill you so full of Me that I overflow to touch those you will meet.

Remember I am the God of all things, from creation to “chance meetings.” Walk with Me confident in the fact that as you give your moments to Me, I will use them to bless you and others as I bring glory to Myself.

Don’t worry ahead of time about “what” you are to do. Just listen and obey as I lead. Then you will fulfill my plan for you today and will be successful. Success as I define it is a joyful obedience to Me within the ensuing adventure of daily life.

Your question should be “What’s next, Abba?” And remember to hang on as we go loving, living and blessing!

Seeing Correctly

2 Timothy 2:15 “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.” (NIV)

Child – Today you face choices. I tell you in my Word that you have been chosen. You are righteous in my sight – loved, special and pleasing to Me. But you must choose to see yourself as I see you. One of the enemy’s greatest ploys is to draw you into careless beliefs and self-talk that belittles and puts you down. As you focus on your imperfections instead of remembering how I see you, you become a victim and not a victor.

Get your eyes off what you think about yourself and choose to believe you are who I say you are. Only then can you walk in triumphant victory. I am the actual transformer, but you must continually present yourself to Me to be transformed. This is a mutual project. You come to Me and I do it!

Remember you are my workmanship and I do great things. Put yourself in my hands in each situation and watch Me work to mold you more into my Son’s image. You are the clay and I am the potter. Rest in that fact today.

Love you bunches,  Abba

1 Peter 2:9 But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.” (NIV)

Father – You created me for yourself – to be your special, chosen person. My purpose in life is to declare your praises. May my thoughts, words and actions do this as I remind myself of all you have done for me and then share those insights with others. Guide the meditation of my heart so that the words I speak and the things I do will honor and praise you. I love you, Lord. Use me today to bring you pleasure.

Child – You do please me when you recognize all that I have done for you. You are mine. You are chosen. You are my beloved child. I delight in you. I choose to live in you and walk with you throughout the gift of today.

We will meet many others today who also need to know that I love them. Be ready to share my love and encouragement with them as you cross paths. No encounter is a coincidence. Each is meant to bring me praise by the words of life you speak or the prayers you lift up for others.

Especially encourage and bless your “family” whether they be family by blood or family by association. I will give you eyes to see their needs. Trust Me to supply all that is required for you to bless others in each situation. Remember, you are not alone!

Abba
