You Are Great…
Good morning beautiful people, good morning. It’s almost noon here in Maine and I wanted to post my morning prayer. I am reminded of the woman that wanted to know if I was the lady on the radio. When I said I was, she said I just want you to know last week was a repeat. I laughed and said, yes, some messages are worth repeating. This prayer is one of those repeat kind of prayers.
I was enjoying looking through a journal a friend gave me for my birthday in 2005. I am especially drawn to a quote by G.K. Chesterton this morning. There is a great man who makes every man feel small. But the really great man is the man who makes every man feel great. Can you imagine if we practiced this as Christians every day? I pen a prayer that day asking God to develop this in my life and ask Him to help me forgive the person that done me wrong the day before.
We have the power to build up others and help them to believe in whom God created them to be. We are all original, designed by God’s handiwork. We all have faults, shortcomings and weaknesses, but because of His great love, He changes us from glory to glory. We all can have a bright future with Christ.
Father, thank you for giving us your heart for people. All the titles the world gives us, labels we wear shouldn’t change how we treat people. You tell us all about this in Matthew 25. Come, you who are blessed by My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry, and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger, and you took me in, I was naked and you clothed Me, I was sick, and you looked after me, I was in prison, and you visited me. Then the righteous will answer Him, Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and take you in, or naked and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?
And the King will reply, truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.
Father, make us great. Let us be doers of your Word. Amen.
Have a blessed day God’s beautiful people. Be Great!
