Morning by Morning, October 25 - Extravagantly Generous
Good morning, Lord Jesus. Be at the center of my thoughts and all that I say and do throughout the moments of my day. ...
"Like good stewards of the manifold grace of God, serve one another with whatever gift each of you has received. Whoever speaks must do so as one speaking the very words of God; whoever serves must do so with the strength that God supplies, so that God may be glorified in all things through Jesus Christ. To Him belong the glory and the power forever and ever" (1 Peter 4:10-11).
Every gift I have is a gift from You. Every good thing in me and my life is an expression of the goodness of God. Apart from You, there's nothing good in me; but I praise You, Lord God, that I never have to be apart from You. So when I speak, when I serve, when I give, when I pray, when I love, let me do all things in Your strength by Your leading for Your glory.
"Every generous act of giving, with every perfect gift, is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change" (James 1:17). So give me Your generous Spirit -- extravagantly generous in all things because You've been extravagantly generous to me (John 3:16). "What are we to say about these things? If God is for us, who is against us? He who did not withhold His own Son, but gave Him up for us, will He not with Him also give us everything else?" (Romans 8:31-32) You've given all for me; by the power of Your grace, I choose to give all to You. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
Be encouraged today! In the Love of Jesus, Tommy Hays
My Friend, I pray the Lord will lavish His extravagant generosity upon every area of your life today, as He pours out that same Spirit through you to others. Please pray the same the same for me. God bless you, my friend!
This weekend I'm excited to be speaking on Healing & Stewardship of Spirit, Soul, and Body at First United Methodist Church of La Grange, Texas with my good friend Pastor J. Paul Bruhn. Please keep us in prayer.
