A Fresh Perspective

For one moment to take your eyes off your work, your commute, your workplace, the people you work with and let your mind soar beyond this world to the heavenly realms.

Before the dawn of creation God had you in mind! Before this world existed God chose you to be his holy and blameless child living within his constant care. Before you ever existed God had settled on you as the focus of his love. Right from the very beginning it was God’s pleasure and will to set the wheels in motion so that you could be adopted as his child through Jesus Christ! You are loved with the same everlasting love that God bears towards his Son, Jesus.

Instead of focusing on your to-do list or your aches and pains take a moment to savor the spiritual blessings in Christ which are yours today. You are redeemed! You are freely forgiven! God’s generous grace has overflowed into every nook and cranny of your life! You are whole and holy because of God’s love! Christ’s blood which was poured out on the altar of the Cross has freed you completely from all the penalties and punishments due to your mistakes and sins.

Don’t worry about tomorrow. God’s already given you the deposit for your home for tomorrow. The power of the Holy Spirit in your life is the first installment of what’s coming. You will get everything God has planned and promised for you. God has thought of everything including bringing all that exists in Heaven and on earth together perfectly, in Christ, at just the right time.

What a blessing God is in our lives!

Praise be to God for giving us through Christ every possible spiritual benefit as citizens of Heaven! (Eph. 1:3 Phillips).

Delight yourself today in God’s grace and peace!
