Let Us Take It Personally
Lord, thou wilt ordain peace for us: for thou also hast wrought all our works in us. Isaiah 26:12
What a difference it makes when we humans cease being general and become pointed and personal in our approach to God! We then come to see that all that God did was for each of us.
It was for me that holy men spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. For me Christ died—and when He arose on the third day, it was for me. When the promised Holy Spirit came, it was to continue in me the work He had been doing for me since the morning of the Creation!
So, I have every right to claim all of the riches of the Godhead in mercy given. What a blessed thought—that an infinite God can give all of Himself to each of His children!
He does not distribute Himself that each may have a part, but to each one He gives all of Himself as fully as if there were no others.
All that He is and all that He has done is for us and for all who share the common salvation.
Thank You, Lord, for all that You have done for me. That You are a personal, caring God is so unlike other religions. Father, glorify Yourself among the nations of the world today.
