Jeremiah 29:11 NIV
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord , “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
……… Lord, we are not our own. We have been bought with a price. You alone know what’s best for us. Write Your story on our hearts.
Blank canvas. Clean, white and without markings. To the natural eye, we can fill it with what we think is suitable and to our liking. With God, it’s limitless and far beyond our imagination what plans He has in store for us. The Creator of the heavens and earth, the Father of lights pours down immeasurable gifts upon us. His mercy. His grace. His favor.
James 1:17-18 NKJV
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning. Of His own will He brought us forth by the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of His creatures.
Salvation. The ultimate gift and sacrifice that’s available for all to receive. This blood stained canvas has covered every inch of our sins that we have committed past, present and future.
We’ve been given an opportunity to start new. Our sins have been washed away. We have a blank canvas that can be filled with an abundance of life-giving blessings, wisdom, knowledge, intimacy with the Lord Himself as we share with others the goodness of the impeccable art grafted into our hearts.
Will you allow the Lord to write His story on your heart? What do you have to lose? From my standpoint….. nothing if He’s the Lord of your life and the lover of your soul. God bless you with all the love and compassion He’s placed within me to see you grow and prosper in Him.
