Love you all, praying for you!
Remember when you were little, Christmas Eve was so exiting. You couldn’t sleep, you couldn’t wait until morning. You were just watching the clock, trying to calculate in your little kid brain, what is the earliest possible time that I can run into Mommy and Daddy’s room, jump on their bed and tell them “It’s Cwis-mas!.” What made it so exciting is that you knew that gifts were waiting for you! Really Good Ones! Things you’ve always wanted! God is just like that – but with God, Christmas is every morning! Can you imagine if every morning were Christmas? What made that morning so wonderful? A longing and anticipation was satisfied. As we get older, we realize that there are things even more wonderful and amazing than toys which eventually break, or clothes that we grow out of, or go out of style. When you get older you need some things beyond the temporary excitement of a child on that day, you find that you need not just the toys – you really need the toy maker.
God showed me something recently - Psalms 90:14 Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days. This is like Christmas every morning, every day – for the rest of your life! His unfailing love is waiting for you every morning. It is unfailing – never no-shows. It’s waiting for you. His unfailing love (His tender-loving kindness and mercies, His abundant goodness to you) – they meet you every morning. (at least – they are waiting for you.) To be satisfied with something, you need to drink it. A glass of pure cold water doesn’t satisfy you by its availability. It satisfies your deep thirst when you drink it! It’s hard to be satisfied by something you don’t participate in. It’s hard to be satisfied by something you haven’t acquired a taste for. The love of God is the only thing that will satisfy you – and God has it waiting for you every morning, if you drink it. What else do you need? If you know that God loves you – with the loving-kindness that a Father has for his precious child. You know that everything you need, ever, He will give you! It’s like the present that keep generating more presents! His loving kindness is available for you every morning – it establishes your identity! You are loved by God, forgiven, redeemed, called, destined, anointed, empowered, protected, cherished, victorious! That's the love God has for you – it’s your identity! Beloved. You are Loved by God, completely blessed, at peace, fully set in motion to prosper in all the Good that He has for you. There is no good thing that He would hold back from you when you fully seek Him and obey what He tells you to do. To be satisfied in the morning with his unfailing love, drink it in! What satisfies you most, you do the most, you desire the most, you prioritize the most. His unfailing love makes you sing for joy and be glad all day long, and for all of your days. It’s like Christmas Day – every day! The delight that you have in those little kid presents, is nothing compared to the delight you can have in his great love for you. Like the commercial of the boy that got a toy truck for Christmas when He was little, but now that He’s a grown man – He gets a brand new truck for Christmas! Way better! So how do you Drink It In? His unfailing love that’s just waiting for you this morning? Psalm 92:1-2 It is good to praise the LORD, to make music to your Name, O Most High, to proclaim His love in the morning and His faithfulness at night. All the good that God has stored up for you begins – with obeying what He says is good. I always thought that I had to good things – but I didn’t realize that these things are not the good that I have to do – these things release the good that God has for me! When you Praise the LORD – when you make music to His Name (the Most High) When you proclaim His love in the morning – that’s how you drink it in. Proclaim it – to make known by open declaration, to announce, to declare with honor – all his perfections) – to utter openly, to make plain – clearly visible to your eye, and clearly obvious to your understanding. To Praise him for His love for you – to proclaim it with your own mouth.
Praying for you, that you will drink it in - every morning - His unfailing love – that you would proclaim it every morning – announce it, so that it would become fully visible to you, and fully obvious to your understanding. So that you would sing for joy all of your days. So that the joy of Christmas morning as a kid – would be multiplied into the joy of your Heavenly Father’s absolute love for you, and his complete and abundant provision – all the days of your life! That you would know your identity… fully loved by God, blessed, protected, victorious! Just one testimony after another!
Love you all,
