For God’s gifts and His call are irrevocable. [He never withdraws them when once they are given, and He does not change His mind about those to whom He gives His grace or to whom He sends His call.]” Romans 11:29 (AMPC)
We can often be thinking in these December days, of all the gifts we have to, or hope to buy, and perhaps even a thought or two of what we may receive! With love in our hearts, we do our best to show affection and care through our giving, as we know others desire to do for us. Despite our best efforts, it does not always work out the way we planned, and sometimes even the best-intentioned gifts need to be returned.
However, our loving Father and Faithful Friend, always knows what we need, and exactly in the right way and time to receive. He gives grace when you need it most; peace when the seas are churned; hope to the failing heart; and strength to those weak and feeble knees.
He gives love when our hearts feel empty; a place to turn to when others turn away. There is nothing you stand in need of now, that He has not already thought, planned, and prepared for you.
In addition, He gives gifts, diverse and distinct, for us to freely share with others—gifts in abundance through the life of the Holy Spirit in us—joy, peace, patience, wisdom, knowledge, healing, and miracles too! He equips us with talents, creative abilities, strengths and strategies that change us, and impact others too.
Lavished upon us, these benefits never run out, never run dry, and are never taken back. In fact, He sees the unique, wonderful, gift that is you—given to the world from His heart of love, and the world, and all it’s beauty, given to you.
Open your heart wide delightfully loved one, and with joyous expectation, receive! Let His life-giving—equipping and empowering—grace gifts pour forth into your life, flooding you with good things, as He so longs to do!
