#through-my-eyes

I’m absolutely convinced that my son will become a greater man than me. I’m overjoyed when he sees himself through my eyes.

Last week he had a character malfunction. He believed a lie about himself, did something bad and was caught out. Trust between us had broken a bit. Words were spoken, tears were shed, wrongdoing was confessed and there were consequences – But there was also forgiveness.

“Come. Let us talk some more about this matter, “says the Lord. “Even though your sins are bright red, they will be as white as snow. Even though they are deep red, they will be white like wool” Isaiah 1:18 (https://bit.ly/2t5dB1L).

Passion and excitement.

How does your heart feel when you think about God?
Does it leap for joy or do nothing?

The guy in Psalm 9:1-2 (https://bit.ly/2EOC9ls) is so excited by what God has done, they can’t stop talking about it. Their love for God makes them break into song praising Him. Their passion for God motivates them. Their heart is burdened that others would know His greatness.

How can you develop the same passion and excitement for God? If you get to know Him better and remember all the wonders He has done, you will find that joy rising in your heart. Lord, grow a passion to praise your name.

#God’s-Got-It

I flew in a World War 2 twin-seater fighter plane. The pilot revved the thing to a gazillion RPM. We shot up with speeds that took gravity by surprise – until it klapped us back down. The plane seemed to be out of control like a gyroscope in a washing machine. I tried, through the 100-year-old headphones, to warn the pilot with manly screams. Then, when we were 5cm from crashing, he levelled out. Eish!!! My nerves

“Don’t panic. I’m with you. There’s no need to fear for I’m your God. I’ll give you strength. I’ll help you. I’ll hold you steady, keep a firm grip on you.” Isaiah 41:10 (https://bit.ly/2QOiRRf).

God’s Got It.

Mourning and growth.

How can I love God more?

When I see others love and passion for Jesus, mine seems so weak in comparison. James 4:8-9 says ‘Get closer to God.’ The closer you are to God, the more you see the depth of your sinfulness. As you realise this, you will see that Jesus did far more for you on the cross than you first thought. You were even less worthy of His forgiveness and He loved you even more than you thought.

Therefore, you mourn your own sin and are even more grateful for what He did for you. And so, your love for Him will grow – Ephesians 3:18-19 (https://bit.ly/3n54tRS).
