Yes, yes, and yes! We are going to be encouraged over the next few days by our Heavenly Father by what Peter preaches through His Word from God. Let The Message soak in and permeate every part of your heart, mind and soul. Be changed, transformed even. Be amazed, encouraged, grateful and powerfully blessed this very morning by the opening of 1 Peter 1, The Message
“What a God we have! And how fortunate we are to have him, this Father of our Master Jesus! Because Jesus was raised from the dead, we’ve been given a brand-new life and have everything to live for, including a future in heaven–and the future starts now! God is keeping careful watch over us and the future. The Day is coming when you’ll have it all–life healed and whole.”
Yes! Think about this all day long and into the night…
“I know how great this makes you feel, even though you have to put up with every kind of aggravation in the meantime. Pure gold put in the fire comes out of it PROVED pure; genuine faith put through this suffering comes out PROVED genuine. When Jesus wraps this all up, it’s your faith, not your gold, that God will have on display as evidence of his victory.”
God’s victory! Our faith!
“You never saw him, yet you love him. You still don’t see him, yet you trust him–with laughter and singing. Because you kept on believing, you’ll get what you’re looking forward to: total salvation.”
Dear Heavenly Father, Thank you! Thank you for all You are and have done, all You are doing now in us and for what You will do and provide. Thank you for total salvation, total healing and restoration, made whole by the blood of Your Lamb, Your only Son, Jesus. Thank you, thank you, thank you! In Jesus Name, Amen
