TRUST YOUR MAKER'S HANDS

 

[2 Samuel 22:3; Isaiah 45:9-12]

 

In Jesus' Name, I Pray God's Will for You Tonight

 

I pray that you may trust your Maker's hands at all times. Just as clay does not say to the potter, “”What are you making?”” so should you not question God's ways. May you trust our Creator, who is full of power, yet shaped you with gentle and loving hands. Remember that the same hands that made the earth, created all men and women. Recognize that these same hands that formed you, stretched out the heavens and marshaled their starry hosts. I pray that you will always trust in the work of His hands, for His ways are perfect.

 

In Jesus' Name, Amen.

Evening Devotional

Scripture Reading: Ephesians 4:17-5:2

Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.


[Ephesians 4:32]


I hope that this month’s consideration of “Loving One An­other” has been showing that being a follower of Christ Jesus makes a difference in the way we live!


In the verses we have read today, we find some contrasts between our old ways of living and the new way of living in Christ. Though we are “made new” and “created to be like God in true righteousness,” this is an ongoing process that is not completed in this life.


Today’s reading gives reasons for our being called to live as “members of one body.” We must live by the truth and avoid giving the devil any kind of foothold in our lives.


Because we can still be tempted to sin, we must pay attention to Paul’s strong warnings about anger, stealing, unwholesome talk, and grieving the Holy Spirit. We all can strive to be kinder and more compassionate, doing “what is helpful for building others up according to their needs.”


And who has not harbored bitterness in their heart? What about “rage and anger, brawling and slander”?


Instead we must be mindful of “forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave [us].” In the Holy Spirit’s power, we truly can “follow God’s example” and “walk in the way of love.”


Prayer:


Spirit of God, empower us to understand more clearly your call to acts of kindness and compassion. Guide us to be forgiving and loving, like Jesus, in whose name we pray. Amen.
