The Devotion: Luke12:6-7
Published on August 9, 2021
Good morning family and friends,
It is hard to believe that I am headed to school this early morning. For me, personally, there are no students this week. It is teacher preparation, and the students arrive next week.
Planning and preparation are ways we can alleviate some of our anxiety and fear of the unknown. Noticed that I said some of our anxiety and fear. In the book of Luke Jesus was preparing his disciples and encouraging them to witness without fear. Another way to alleviate fear is to “know” God has not given us a spirit of fear but of power love and a sound mind!
Acts 1:8 tells us that we receive power, or the ability to “be” God’s witness after the Holy Spirit has come upon us. A witness is one who testifies of what they’ve seen and heard. All we have to do is to be ourselves. I often use the phrase “Do you!” God knew you and me before we were even born the Bible says he is intimately acquainted with all of our Ways. Psalm 139:3 Ephesians says we are sealed with The Holy Spirit.
A manufacturer would not put his seal on a product until he has inspected it and knows that what he put in it will work. God knew you when he made you he knew you’d be where you are today and you would be around who you are today.
You are His You are sealed, so…Do you, because He’s got you!
“Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? And not one of them is forgotten before God. Why even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not; you are of more value than many sparrows. – Luke 12:6-7
