present you faultless before the presence of his glory with
exceeding joy, to the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty,
dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.
Jude 1:24, 25 KJV Bible
Let’s remember who our Father is, who our loving Mother is!
God’s the one who holds us up; not only do we not get hurt in the tumble, but we don’t even fall!
He’s the one who sees us as we truly are. Nothing can tarnish or distort His view of us. So why should we see ourselves any less? In seeing ourselves through God’s eyes, we will also naturally walk in ways that demonstrate God’s infinite goodness. Healthy, innocent, capable…you finish the list!
Not only is God pretty great, He’s also the One Greatness. All the glory goes to Him. All our love, prayer, commitments go to Him. Everything is to God, through God, for God, from God, because of God. When we think we might run out of energy, and so we can’t finish the rest of our sports game; when we worry about popularity, and so don’t lend a helping hand or share even a smile; when we feel sick or sad; or even when we feel like we are the master of all our successes, we get to bring our focus back to God and see how much He loves us.
God loves us so much! We can only love Him. If everything you did was prefaced by, “God, this one’s for you!” what would you do? How much effort would you put into it?
