Devotional for Tuesday November 3rd

Good Morning Everyone,
 
Our theme for this month: “Be thankful”
 
Our Bible verse for today: “How priceless your faithful love is, God!” Psalm 36:7 (CSB)
 
Our thought for today: “Be thankful for God’s love”
 
In recent daily devotionals we just spent two months exploring the subject of God’s love. We thought about the various ways in which God expresses His love for us, and we discussed ways we can experience God’s love better and deeper. I hope those devotionals were helpful for you.
 
Are you thankful for God’s love? King David was. In Psalm 36:7 he declared that it is priceless to him. The love of God was perhaps the primary theme underlying most of the Psalms David wrote. In fact, from start to finish the entire Bible is the story of God’s overwhelming love for us and of His strong desire for us to spend eternity with Him in heaven. “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16 (NIV)
 
God’s love for humanity in general was proven once and for all, without question, by sending His Son to die for our sins. But salvation isn’t general in nature, it is specific and happens on an individual basis. Jesus didn’t just come to offer salvation to the entire world, He came to save you individually. God doesn’t just love the world that much He loves you that much.
 
There’s a Christian praise song about being thankful for the love of God called, “I Could Sing of Your Love Forever”. It has been recorded by many artists and is sung regularly in worship services around the world. Here’s a piece of it:
 
Over the mountains and the sea,
Your river runs with love for me,
And I will open up my heart
And let the healer set me free.
I’m happy to be in the truth,
And I will daily lift my hands:
For I will always sing of when
Your love came down.

I could sing of your love forever,
I could sing of your love forever,
I could sing of your love forever,
I could sing of your love forever.
I could sing of your love forever …

 
How thankful are you for God’s love? Could you sing of it forever? Spend some time in prayer this morning simply thanking Him for loving you. Of all the things we have to be thankful for, nothing is greater than God’s love for us.
 
God Bless,
Pastor Jim
