Child, My Little One Devotional (Words from the Lord Series)
by Marijo Phelps 2/19/2010 / Devotionals
Prayer: Oh, Lord, it is early and I'm SO foggy. Help me awaken to worship You. I need You and worship You, my Jesus!
Child, my little one, I'm still setting you free in Me. All is not accomplished overnight, nor is it supposed to be. Take heart, as there are times and seasons. You are in a productive/pruning one. Yet, fear not, I AM gentle and know you/your areas of need. Stay yielded. Pain comes through ripping and tearing of resistance. Trust Me and let My love untangle you from things which sap life or kill the tender parts of you. I love you much more than you even know how to love yourself. Selah.
In my anguish I cried to the LORD, and he answered by setting me free. (NIV)
"Therefore I tell you that the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people who will produce its fruit. (NIV)
Produce fruit in keeping with repentance. (NIV)
1 Thessalonians 1:3
We continually remember before our God and Father your workproduced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ. (NIV)
No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it. (NIV)
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. (NIV)
