Tuesday September 30th, 2014: But Christ

Devotions

I hope everyone is having a great Tuesday! I’ve realized something revolutionary recently… God is too good to me. I don’t deserve this life. I don’t deserve to be blessed with the friends I have. I don’t deserve my supportive family. I don’t deserve my amazing church family. I don’t deserve my school.

But Christ.

I am a sinner. I fall short daily… Hourly… Sometimes by the minute.

 But Christ.

 Because of Christ I am richly blessed. Because of Christ, and His love for me, I gained eternity. This has nothing to do with my good works. It is all about Christ.

“A faithful person will be richly blessed, but one eager to get rich will not go unpunished.” Proverbs 28:20 NIV 

Now don’t get me wrong… There are some days where I don’t think that God can do anything with my mess of a life. But…

“Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.” Ephesians 3:20 NLT

God is about to provide anything you need. He is going to provide blessing to you in such a way so that you will even have some left over to share!

“And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others.” 2 Corinthians 9:8 NLT

So today recognize the blessings in your life. Then think about how you can bless others with your blessings.
