You are Invited

So they took away the stone. Then Jesus looked up and said, “Father, I thank you that you have heard me. …” John 1:41

Today you are invited to consider how you react when the way ahead suddenly becomes clear. Do you rush forward eagerly, grasping opportunities as they come? Or do you pause and thank God for opening the door for you? What difference do you think it will make if you take the second option next time an obstacle is removed or a door opened? Ask God to remind you to thank Him first and then to go forward in His presence. What are you doing at the moment that is only possible with His help? Before you start your day, pause and thank God for the opportunities the day will present. And then take note in the evening about how your day went.

May God bless you with open doors and new opportunities today – and may you delight to thank Him for them.

About Mandy Hackland

My love in life is to encourage others to deepen their relationship with God. I write devotional material, stories and small group studies with that in mind. I live in South Africa and also love spending time in the bush, bird watching and walking. I have moved to the coast and am enjoying the green spaces and beautiful vistas that surround me, reminding me of God's grace every day.
