Embracing a Radiant Future with God!
“But by the grace of God, I am what I am, and His grace to me was not in vain. No, I worked harder than all of them–yet not I, but the grace of God that was with me.” 1 Corinthians 15:10
Allowing God into our life is like letting the sun shine down on us; it’s always there, and we need to permit it to do its job. Though it can be a scary prospect, it is an invaluable step toward embracing a radiant future with God. Acknowledging and accepting that God is part of our lives allows us to open up pathways to potential and goodness in our lives in ways we may never have thought possible. We can feel the warmth of His love even when times are difficult, allowing us to stay strong and have faith that He will provide what we need.
God’s presence brings joy, peace, and comfort unlike anything else we could ever experience on this earth. Inviting Him into our daily thoughts helps build a relationship with Him that will lead to greater understanding and growth spiritually. First, however, you must allow him into your life because when someone knocks at your door, you either give access by letting the person in or deny access by refusing. No one comes to your abode without consent; otherwise, the person is a thief, and any trespasses on your property are against the law. God understands your will and choice, but He requires and expects you to let Him do whatever He wants to do.
Isaiah 26:12 says, “LORD, thou wilt ordain peace for us: for thou also hast wrought all our works in us.”
God’s desire to give us the best He intends for us, but we can resist him and His dealing in our lives without even realizing it. Most times, the dealings of God do not appeal to our senses and reasoning. Remember, He is God; in truth, His ways are not ours. When we refuse to believe in him and deny his will, we limit his power and ability to accomplish what he desires when we reject his love and mercy. The workings of the Lord are to the end of making us the ambassador of Christ on earth, functioning in our full capacities. But some people are not yet there to manifest in full capacity because we have not allowed his workings in us.
God works in us both to will and to do His good pleasure. There is work’ in us. A mined raw gold has no value except it has been worked upon, including the furnace of fire. What furnace of fire, experience, and dealings have you dispensed with? What limits you to where you are? Raw gold will not get to the display room of valuables until refined. Therefore, don’t reject the working of God because it is high time to let God. Let Him! Revelation 3:20 says, “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come into him and dine with him, and he with Me.”
1. I know you love me, and I am thankful for your presence.
2. Lord, I let you into my life. Do to me what you want best in me in Jesus’ name. Amen!
