Episode 564

TODAY’S READING
But he said to me, My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses so that the power of Christ may rest upon me
2 Corinthians 12:9

Guys, there is nothing more powerful on this earth to admit that the blessings in our lives and the reality of all that goes on in our lives are not a result of our actions and our hard work, but, Grace, God, there is nothing more powerful than admitting that we are weak and that we are nothing with our Creator. Because if we could do it all, then what would this life be before? The reality is that you know that we cannot do it without our Creator. We did not form ourselves. We did not even understand half of the thoughts that go on and brains.

We didn’t ask for the water or the clouds. We did not form the lands that we live in. We did not form the skies that we gaze on. None of that was because of our doing. And so we know that there is a powerful, all-knowing God that is there that has created everything and every fiber in this universe, and he created you, and he created your inner most been, and that has always been the craziest yet most some part of our relationship with Christ. And that is that we have this day a powerful God that creates galaxies, but he also creates you and me; he took the time to say she’s going to have blue eyes, and that one’s gonna have brown eyes. And this one’s going to be five feet, and that one’s gonna be six feet and she’s gonna like to read, and she’s gonna like to art to craft, and she’s going to want to bake. So we’re all unique for a time such as this, guys. She’s crazy sufficient for us. Where we’re weak, he is strong, and we’re allowed to let the world see that, and so I’m the first to say that all of the blessings in my life. Those are just a result of being obedient to the call.

I have never seen the amount of blessings in my life as I have in the last few years. And I know it’s because I’ve made a commitment to pray every single day, and I have done exactly that. And so I ask that you do the same in your life. I don’t ask for me, but I asked for you. If you were to just surrender every single part of your life to the Lord. His grace is sufficient for you where you are weak, he is strong, and everything that you have will always be pointed back to him.

Prayer:
Father God, the praise is your glory; everything that we have, everything that we are, it is because of you. You knit the very fiber of this universe; you have built galaxies and created so much. You have also created the person and me on the other side of this mic. Enormous inner thoughts, Lord, You that are so big and so grand and get you to know our inner thoughts. You know what keeps us up at night, and you are still there for us. You are strong, and we are weak, and so we always point back to you, or we are nothing without you. Everything that we have is because of you, and we thank you. We love you, and we honor you today and every day. We ask that you bless this beautiful Thursday and that it is in your son’s only made that we pray. Amen

Hi, I'm Ali.
I want to encourage you on your faith journey!

I'm the coffee obsessed baker from Miami, FL who got too busy to find time to read scripture everyday. I knew my life was better with Jesus and I knew I wasn't the only one struggling with finding alone time with God every morning, so I put my dreams of opening a bakery aside and set out to produce a five minute daily devotional. What first started as an email chain, has now flourished into a beautiful community and I am so happy you are here!

MY TESTIMONY

We are a faith based community in pursuit of daily prayer. All it takes is five minutes - we know you're busy but He loves you still.
