I was praying early this morning and took a drive down to my office because I was worried about a project and I didn’t have the notes I needed in front of me. A low level panic was setting in. I continued to pray and (IMHO) God revealed what I needed, calmed my nerves, and I was back home enjoying a cup of coffee (which is how every day should begin), reading my Bible. I wonder why I doubt that God loves me enough to help me resolve problems? I start feeling unworthy because of my shortcomings, failures and sin. While I should be aware of these, I think my thoughts are better placed on Him, His great love, and the mystery in Christ which reveals somehow in His eyes I am worthy. I am certainly worth more than a couple of sparrows. Right?
Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten by God. Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows. Luke 12:6-7 NIV
What can I entrust to God today? How can I entrust myself into His care, into His service, and for the glory of God?
God, as this day begins- there are a couple of important discussions ahead. Help me express the balance of love and truth and person investment in those I am going to counsel. Thank you that You are at work in my life, my wife, my kids, and friends. I hope I bless You, not embarrass You. Help me feel worthy of Your love remembering I am Your adopted child, made in Your image. I desire to be like Jesus in every way.
