The scripture for today, January 8, is 1st Peter 1:8 as found in the New Testament of the Bible: “Though you have not seen him, you love him! And even though you do not see him now, you believe in him! And are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy!”
Ah, my Lord Jehovah, I praise you ~ God the Father and First Cause of all things, God the Son who carries out the will of the Father, God the Spirit and Life Bringer. In every way you have revealed yourself. In every way you are the white radiance of eternity quivering in the intense delight of divinity. I am not in the dark, wondering about your glorious will for me. You provide light in your Word. You are Word. You are Light. The rays of your wisdom stream down to me, I catch them, and my heart is filled with You.
Lord God, help me work through forgiving seventy times seven. That’s 490 forgiving the same person for sometimes the same thing. So hard to do. Make me die to self so I can.
Your Bible is a gift I shall never tire of because I never have to guess what is going on in the world. It is so astounding, I never comprehend all that is in it ~ about the past, the right now, and the forever future. Your Plan for this world affects the next world ~ your place of ethereal love and joy. I thank you for revealing all this to me through your Words and keeping my heart as receptive as that of a little child.
