“And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the Author and Perfecter of faith.” (Hebrews 12:2 – http://bit.ly/2LwlzE3)

Did you see it? The word Author. God writes a story. He writes a book.
That story is about His love for humanity.
You and I get to feature in that story.
Isn’t that cool?

Authors carefully think about the book they are writing.
Likewise, God carefully thinks about the pages and chapters He has for your life.
So, as the Author holds the pen to write, let Him hold you.



Sometimes you can find yourself singing or humming your favourite song.
Well, God does the same. He sings a song over you.

Zephaniah 3:17 (http://bit.ly/2vdbrcF) says:
“He will take great delight in you; He will quiet you with His love; but will rejoice over you with singing.”

He rejoices over you and me.
Why not ask Him today what are the lyrics He is singing over you?
Give it a try. Ask Him and listen.

Then tell Him which line of praise you would like to sing back to Him.



We read in Mark 3:13-19 (http://bit.ly/2ZpHWSJ) about the 12 disciples Jesus chose to be sort of like His community for 3 years. They did life together, they served Jesus and others together, they followed Jesus wherever He went, they prayed together and prayed for others together, they learnt more and more about God and His kingdom together, they grew in their faith and relationship with Jesus together.

They had a very specific purpose in God’s plan and His kingdom – TOGETHER. They were better together with Jesus.

You were made to do life, serve Jesus, build His kingdom TOGETHER with others.

God says…

Read Judges 6:11-16 (http://bit.ly/2Z8AfAc)

Gideon did not see himself as God saw him. He saw himself the way others saw him. He saw himself through his situation. Gideon’s family was the poorest of families in the whole tribe of Manasseh, and he was the least thought of in his family – talk about super low self-esteem.

God shows up. Calls him a mighty warrior. Tells him he is strong. Gideon does not believe God at first but eventually comes around.

How often do we NOT take God at His word and believe all the things He says about us?
What’s God saying to you about you?
