If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven, give good things to those who ask him!
- Matthew 7:11
As you look back on some of the best days of your life, what comes to mind?
Most likely, it is a day full of love, laughter, and joy.
But if you think about that day, it was probably shared with someone you care about or love.
Now take that thought a step further. Did you do something for someone that day? Or did they do something for you?
Often, I have felt God prompt me to reach out to someone, only to find they were having a hard day.
Other times, I have been the recipient of someone else’s kindness. Everyone has times when they need God’s comfort, hope, and outpouring of love.
As believers, we have the joy of carrying out God’s plans and the great commission. And, nothing feels as good as hearing how much God’s incredible Word has changed a life.
We are told in God’s Word that Jesus is close to the broken-hearted. Yet, he cares for us and is with us always. He loves to hear from us and desires to spend time with us each day.
Prayer: Dear Jesus, thank you for loving me and giving me so many blessings. Please help me to focus on your goodness to me today rather than what I desire. Fill my longings with your love. Amen.
