A baby bird in the nest will open up it’s beak wide to the mother bird because it knows that she will give it what it needs. Our Father God also has many good blessings to bestow on His children, if we would but open up to Him in faith.
King James Version
We have this promise from Jesus, that He has a place prepared for each of us who have put our faith in Him. That place is in our Father’s house, where we will all someday live together as a family.
Making the decision to put your faith in Jesus and enter into new birth in Him is only the beginning of the wonderful plan God has for you.
A penguin would be quite sad and frustrated if he tried to use his wings to fly like other birds. But a penguin in the water is quite content because there he can use his wings to swim gracefully. Likewise, we will not find contentment and joy until we stop comparing ourselves to others, and instead, inquire of the Lord as to the place he has for us in his plan.
Like the auto collector and restorer in the cartoon, Jesus sees great value in people – even people with broken, damaged lives – so much so that He paid a high price to buy them back from Satan: His life. Jesus can heal and restore the life of anyone who puts their faith and trust in Him.
There is a lot of confusion and misunderstanding in this world about God. Jesus came to show us the way to the Father God.
The key to putting on your new self is to have your mind renewed by the Word of God.
We must not allow an unforgiving heart to come between us and our brothers and sisters, because it will also come between us and our heavenly Father.
As Christians, it is easy to be courageous in the face of trouble, if we remember who our Father is.
God not only shows His justice by judging and condemning sin, but He shows His mercy in Jesus, whom He sent to pay the penalty for our sin. If we authorize Him by faith, Jesus will be our defense attorney before the judge.
