God’s In-Box

Spirit-Lifting Thoughts for Today_150 x 150_jpg“All whom My Father gives (entrusts) to Me will come to Me; and the one who comes to Me I will most certainly not cast out [I will never, no never, reject one of them who comes to Me].” – John 6:37 (Amp)

Most mornings after I pray and have a cup of coffee, I log-on to my laptop computer and check my email messages. I start hitting the “Delete” button, trying to clean-out the dozens of messages I don’t have the time, or desire to read. Messages like those from scam ministries asking for money, or advertisers attempting to sell me cheap watches or fabulous vacations in Tobingo – all kinds of “Junk Email” that clutters my email box every day.

Recently, I wondered how God handles all the email He gets. If He had an email address, that is, it might be something like: “OneTrueGod@gmail.com.” Would He read every email He received? Or, would He delete many of them without opening, like I do? Actually, I believe He would read every single one! Here’s why: I believe our God loves to hear from us anytime we want to talk with Him. And He doesn’t get bored with us like other people do. He enjoys every conversation we have with Him. He is never too busy to listen to us when we visit with Him in prayer.

Gods In Box_jpgIn fact, He tells us to pray unceasingly.

God loves us so much that when we honestly let him know about what’s going on in our lives – our needs, feelings, hurts, and even complaints, we always have His full attention. God is the most compassionate and best friend we will ever have. We can talk to Him about anything. He will never be judgmental or criticize us for what we say, or for expressing our feelings no matter how dumb. He has promised to “be there” for us any time of the day or night, twenty four hours a day, seven days a week.

“…casting all your care(s) upon Him, for He cares for you.” – 1 Peter 5:7

So next time you need to talk with someone, talk with God first.

Prayer is the best (IM) Instant Messenger – better than chatting on Google or Facebook. You can chat with God without needing a computer or Internet service. He is always ready to listen, and your message will never be deleted from His In-Box.

P R A Y E R

Heavenly Father, I thank You for your unfailing love and concern for me. I thank You that I can come to You in prayer with all my needs, feelings, hurts, and complaints, 24/7. You will always be glad to hear from me. And as I cast all my cares upon You, You will care for me, understand me, and give me the right advice. I can always come before Your throne room of grace and receive mercy and compassion in my time of need. I bless You and praise You today. In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.

God’s Loving Care

“For as the soil makes the sprout come up and a garden causes seeds to grow, so the Sovereign LORD will make righteousness and praise spring up before all nations.” – Isaiah 61:11

As sure as the sun rises every day and the springtime refreshes the earth each year by the seeds that we sow into the ground, the day is coming when the Creator of heaven and earth, Yahovah God, will bring forth an everlasting harvest of righteous mankind from all the nations and peoples. They will give Him the Glory and thanksgiving and praise that He  alone deserves. They will also qualify to live in God’s eternal home where joy, rest and peace abide forever.

God is our heavenly Father.

He does not focus on our faults and shortcomings, but prefers to see the potential for good that He has implanted in each and every one of us. These divine seeds God has sown in such rich soil spring up freely, strongly, and constantly. As His redeemed children, He patiently prunes away our unproductive character traits and carefully cultivates the best parts that will yield the most good fruit.

One of the glorious attributes of the true God is that He regards the needs of all His creatures and things. Whether poor or rich, famous or obscure, we are never forgotten by our Heavenly Father. Jesus said that He remembers the falling sparrow, and hears the young ravens when they cry. Are you and I not of more worth than these?

Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.” – Matthew 10:29-31

“[Even] When my father and my mother forsake me, then the Lord will take me up.” – Psalm 27:10

“Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.” – 1 Peter 5:7

Becoming a Child of God.

We become a child of God by placing our trust in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord of our lives so that our sins can be forgiven and removed and our spirits regenerated. God receives us into His family, one by one, by the dual process of (1) spiritual birth and (2) adoption into His family. Each one of us must therefore make a choice to belong to Him and to benefit from His covenant care and love.

God loved you so much that He gave His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ the Messiah, so that all who believe, trust, and rely upon Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (John 3:16).
