FEBRUARY 3 DEVOTION

Wednesday, February 06, 2013

HEAVENLY FATHER, I DON'T SEE EYE TO EYE WITH PEOPLE I SEE EVERYDAY. IN FACT, THEIR WAYS OF DOING THINGS OFTEN ANNOY ME. YET, YOU HAVE PLACED THEM IN MY LIFE TO REFINE THE WAY I RELATE TO PEOPLE. HELP ME FOCUS, NOT ON WHAT CAUSES ME TO DISLIKE THEM, BUT ON WHAT MAKES THEM PRECIOUS TO YOU. THAT WAY I CAN LEARN TO VALUE THEM AS WELL.

I ....BEG YOU TO LEAD A LIFE WORTHY OF THE CALLING TO WHICH YOU HAVE BEEN CALLED, WITH ALL HUMILITY AND GENTLENESS, WITH PATIENCE, BEARING ONE WITH ANOTHER IN LOVE, MAKING EVERY EFFORT TO MAINTAIN THE UNITY OF THE SPIRIT IN THE BOND OF PEACE.
EPHESIANS 4:1-3

When I read this I felt this is something we all have to give to God to get help with this situation. Thank you Lord for your goodness and mercy working on our lives.
God bless my friends.

    Romans 15:7 says that we should receive each other just as Christ Jesus has received us. That really sets me straight! He received me in all my sin, without condemnation, but offering to me the way of salvation. So that is how He expects me to relate to those around me. They are valuable people to Him and they need to be valuable to me as well!

    emoticon I needed this one...we moved next door to a woman whose reputation is to be nosy and spread gossip, and that is true. So it is a struggle to love her, but God gives us the abounding love to be able to do this. I pray I will avail myself of His love each time I need it for her, remembering that I am hard to love at times too. Thank God that He is love and we can have all we need of it - just by asking.
emoticon you for sharing this one. Blessings, Joanie emoticon

    I recall many times when God didn't see eye to eye with me, yet He loves me with a constant love. He beseeches us to do the same. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us. 1 John 4:12
