See how very much our Father loves us, for He calls us His children, and that is what we are! But the people who belong to this world don’t recognize that we are God’s children because they don’t know Him. Dear friends, we are already God’s children, but He has not yet shown us what we will be like when Christ appears. But we do know that we will be like Him, for we will see Him as He really is. And all who have this eager expectation will keep themselves pure, just as He is pure.
1 John 3:1-3 (NLT)
Shout salvation full and free;
Highest hills and deepest caves;
This our song of victory,–
Jesus saves! Jesus saves!
Priscilla J. Owens
The love of God frees us from the prison of fear.
In Hebrews 4:3, we read an amazing truth. It says there that God works were “finished from the foundation of the world.” In other words, God had already provided the answer to your every need before the world was ever formed. With His divine foreknowledge He looked down the corridor of time to come, saw your coming problem and provided just exactly what you would need. . . .
Think on the majesty and magnitude of God. Focus on the promises He has given you in His Word. Turn your attention to fulfilling His purpose for your life. Live in the confidence that He is in control. Now you can relax, for there is nothing to worry about. God cares and He keeps His promises to help. – Richard Lee
